Stand On Top of the World with Spring Platforms

Umiradien - Black Leather - Shellys London


Much like history, fashion often repeats itself and the platform is no exception. Platforms first gained popularity in the 70′s, paired to perfection with bellbottom jeans, then made a comeback in the 90′s with the growth of grunge. And this season these pumped up kicks are back in a big way, reaching heights upwards of five inches (like this one from YRU!).

Third times a charm? Whether you want a little lift or a lot, has a platform to suit your everyday style.
