Isabel Marant Takes the Win For Best It Shoe of 2012
In a year that was filled with covetable shoes, Isabel Marant's wedge sneaker took the win for the It shoe of the year. It was a close call — Christian Louboutin came in a close second — but there was no denying the huge wedge sneaker craze that took over 2012. Right in line with the year's sporty trend, Marant's cool sneakers have been spotted on numerous celebrities (Marant's futuristic Bekett and girlier Bobby designs were the most popular) and fashion girls alike. And ringing in at about $640 for a pair, we weren't surprised to see a huge spawn of knockoffs — and neither was the designer. "I cannot say I'm surprised, because I worked a very long time to achieve it," said Marant. "It took a long time because when you have a wedge in the shoe it can be very bulky. When I finished it, I knew it was going to be a hit, and that it would be copied." We can't wait to see the new designs she has in store for us next year, but for now, click the slideshow to see the celebrities who donned Marant's ultracool sneakers in 2012.
