"Nothing beats canvas lace-up sneakers. Vans are my go-to since they are from my West Coast home and come in every color imaginable. If it's good enough for the skaters, then I'm sold." - Adrianna Barrionuevo, Associate Fashion Credits Editor
"Look long and hard at both and ask yourself which will still seem cool in ten years. That's why." - Alison Syrett Cleary, Digital Writer

Give it a year or two, and the same will be true of the wedge sneaker." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
"I would rather go barefoot on the subway than wear wedge sneakers. They are heinous." - Anonymous
