Throwback Kicks: Beyoncé x Isabel Marant Concealed Wedge Sneakers

In 2011, Beyoncé was riding high following the release of her album 4. After four other singles were released, Beyonce opted to release visuals for the up-tempo "Love On Top" that pretty much launched a wave of wedge sneaker silhouettes and 1,000 Isabel Marant knock-offs. tumblr_m2rmdmvWA31qgmtmvo1_500

The Bekett leather and suede concealed wedge sneaker, which still sells well in 2015, can be purchased here.

Watch the video for "Love On Top" below and reminisce on the days when this song was Blue Ivy Carter's announcement to the world.

Throwback Kicks: Ciara x Nike Air Assault

In 2006 Ciara, known for her tomboyish style and love of complex dance moves, released the video to a song that would become a bit of an anthem for women while lending to audible groans from every man within the vicinity. In the visual, directed by Diane Martel, Ciara dresses "like a boy" clad in painted on tattoos, jewels, and...a rather vintage pair of Nike Air Assault sneakers.

Throwback Kicks: Cassie x Air Jordan 1 'Black x Gold' 2003

Back in 2006, a fresh-faced beauty leaped onto the music scene and had us jamming to her R.Les produced single "Me & U" for a solid five months. That beauty is Cassie, and if you were a fan of the debut single from Diddy's number 1 girl you also probably remember her video for "Me & U." The visual, directed by Ray Kay, features a dance sequence by the singer/model clad in the very best in 2006 fashion and a nice nod to the 2003 release of the Air Jordan 1 'Black x Gold.' me-u-cassie-19372973-1280-576
