Fab or Fail: Isabel Marant Sneakers as Seen on Alicia, Beyoncé and Tracee

Fab or Fail: Isabel Marant Sneakers as Seen on Alicia, Beyoncé and Tracee

The stars are taking a break from “shoe-icide” in these comfy trainers. Are you feeling them?

Published December 28, 2011

Outside of the gym, it seems like it’s rare to spot a sneaker on our favorite fashionistas in Hollywood. Lately, however, starlets are giving chunky wedge trainers by French designer Isabel Marant a run. The brand offers two styles — “The Willow” and “The Bekkett” — that each come in different colors, and ring up for $725-$760. Take a look at who’s been keeping it comfy in these shoes-of-the-moment.

Alicia Keys
kicked it courtside in The Willow sneaker at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden (December 26) with her hubby Swizz Beatz and their adorable 14-month-old baby Egypt, who sported tiny velcro sneakers in a similar style. The singer has a particular knack for flipping the red carpet script and wearing sleek street wear, and she paired her multi-colored version with black pants, a fur-trimmed leather jacket and thick glasses for a trendy-yet-comfortable courtside look.

Although Beyoncé continues to tower in 5-inch heels during the third trimester of her pregnancy, she also gave her feet a rare break when she wore Isabel Marant High-Top Bekkett kicks to groove in her “Love On Top” music video. Mama worked them with a leotard and captain-style hat while hitting upbeat dance moves. Tracee Ellis Ross was also spied in the Bekkett (is there anything she can’t pull off!?) while shopping in LA in matching jeans and a multi-colored sweater layered over a yellow top.

They're certainly all making a case for comfort! What’s your verdict on these shoes, ladies? And if you’d wear them, tell us how you’d rock them in our comment section!
