Brides Wearing Sneakers — Casual Overkill?

The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine did it (in bedazzled, platform, Superga sneakers, no less). And, decked-out kicks were the footwear of choice at yesterday's Chanel haute couture preview — Cara D. played bride for the runway's finale. (Rumor has it that each pair took a minimum of 30 hours to make!) Don't get us wrong — we love a good sneaker. We’ll wear ‘em to the gym, to brunch, and maybe even to work. But, when it comes to that everlasting "I do," we’re just a bit skeptical about foregoing our delicate heels or pretty flats for a sweet pair of kicks.
Trends, however cool in the moment, may not seem so rad 20 years down the road. While brides-to-be may have Karl's blessings, we want our wedding album to feel timeless, not dated by the clothes and shoes we wore. So, perhaps these cheeky Cold Feet by Jeffrey Campbell sneakers are a better option for pre- and post-wedding shenanigans instead of the actual ceremony. After all, what's a bachelorette party without those customary bridal-themed accessories?
So, tell us: Has the fancy sneaker officially jumped the shark? Or, are you positively in love with the idea of comfy-chic nuptials?
