As a 90’s kid, there are tons of things I could not forget about that era – McGyver, ‘Nsync and platform shoes are just some of them. But I’m going to talk more about platform shoes because this pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes practically nudged me in that direction:
Newsies Sandal, $174.95, Jeffrey Campbell
I always thought platform shoes only became hugely popular in the 90’s but after some research, I found out that they have been around and loved by style-loving people far longer than that.
In fact, way back Ancient Greece, these were already used. And they were not only relegated to pop culture. They were pretty mainstream back in the 30’s up until the 80’s, until it was again popularized by the Spice Girls in the 90’s.
Having found out all these, I can easily arrive to the conclusion that platform shoes are never going away. They will be in fashion, especially to those people who are more than willing to make a fashion statement.
Jeffrey Campbell is definitely an advocate of platform shoes.
This pair of blue patent sandals is a perfect option for summery ensembles. You also can’t miss the platforms. It features comic-strip wrapping that definitely makes for a conversation starter.
It has a youthful and fun vibe to it that captured what the 90’s is all about. I can easily wear this with matching blue jacket and a dress.
So what do you think of this shoe? Will you wear it?
