Platform shoes are yet another staple of the 90s that are making its way back into present day fashion. Fun fact: this trend revived itself once before in the ‘00s. In fact, I remember my favorite pair of shoes as a seven year old were my Lizzie McGuire platform flip flops.
This trend is taking over in the form of chunky dad sneakers, raised combat boots, and espadrille-like sandals. It’s not surprising these types of shoes are becoming popular… doesn’t everyone want to be a few inches taller without the pain and formality of heels?
Here are some walking-to-class and around LA looks styled by your favorite Bruins, who look taller and definitely on-trend with their platform shoes.
