Seeing Triple: Isabel Marant ‘Bekket’ Sneakers vs. Ash ‘Cool’ Wedge Sneakers vs. Steve Madden ‘Believer’ Sneakers


I have great news! So you know how we’ve all been obsessing over the Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers spotted on everyone from Rihanna to Beyonce to Anne Hathaway? Well, retailers have gotten hip to the fact that wedge sneakers are all the rage and are creating ‘inspired’ replicas of the kicks.

As you know, the Isabel Marant wedge sneakers (Bekket and Willow, specifically) boast a hidden wedge heel, suede and textured-leather, a rubber sole and a cushioned leather tongue. A signature style element of the sneaks is the velcro-fastening tabs on the front. They cost about $1,600. Check out some of the colorways:



Alicia Keys has been spotted in the ‘Willow’ style.

Unfortunately, the styles are mostly sold out though some are available on eBay:



Ash ‘Bowie’ wedge sneakers (in both the ‘Cool’ and ‘Bowie’ styles), as seen on Jourdan Dunn and Megan Fox, have a similar design.

They boast one Velcro band across the front as well as a lace-up closure and a 3″ covered wedge heel. See the various styles/colors below:



They retail for about $235-260. Shop below:



Finally, Steve Madden has released a design called “Believer” sneakers which boast the same velcro fastening, suede and leather exterior and hidden wedge heel and cost about $200.

The “Believer” kicks come in an array of colors from tan to black to white/black/red and I’ve currently only spotted them in the Soho and Herald Square stores in New York City.

Hit us in the comments if you’ve seen them elsewhere!

So of course, I picked up the Steve Madden version and am loving them, Glamazons! They’re sooo comfortable, give me the extra height I crave and are versatile enough to work with pants, shorts and dresses.

Check them out below:

What do you think about the different iterations of the wedge sneaker? Which pair is your fave? Have you picked up a pair of any? Do you know of another retailer who is nailing the wedge sneaker look? Do share in the comments!

    What is the difference between Steve Madden "Believer" and Steve Madden "Hilight" wedge sneakers? Are they the different styles or are they the exact same with different names? I'm very confuse, every image I see its the same! Does anyone know? Please do comment! Thanks!

    What is the difference between “cool” & “bowie”. Which one is which in the photo? I think they could be nice without the toungue hanging out.

    • Erika Sorocco

      The COOL has a thicker sole – that is the only different between the COOL and BOWIE styles. Both Megan Fox and Jourdan Dunn are wearing the COOL version.
