Pumped Up Kicks

So last week, I embarrassingly fell down our front stairs. And I tore a ligament in my ankle. Which is how I ended up like this:


So there are a lot of cons to this condition. Pain, swelling, not being able to carry things while on crutches, everything taking twice as long, going up and down stairs, etc. But... I have found one pro in all of this: high tops.

It turns out that my new boot has about a 1.5-2 inch platform and I'll need some platform sneaks with decent ankle support to level me out. And, well, I'm sick of wearing my running shoes everywhere. I've been finding some pinsperation in these awesome (but $680) Isabel Marant sneaks:







 Okay. So, it's mostly moms that have embraced the high tops trend... but I'm pretty excited to embark on this 6-weeks+ sporty phase. Thus starts the search for a reasonably looking/priced knock-off...
