#TuesdayShoesday: 15 Crazy Stylish Platform Sneakers
Last week I received a message from an old college friend who was on the hunt for a pair of stylish platform sneakers. She was looking for some affordable alternatives to all the cool sneakers she’d been stalking on the international runways, and who better than Hauterfly to turn to? Of course, it sparked a story idea in my head instantly, what with our collective love for sneakers here at Hauterfly HQ! I thought it’d be a great idea to acquaint all you sneakerheads with some funky options, no? I promise your January shoe-shopping list will be incomplete without these!
Sneakers are a street style staple and they’re not falling out of fashion favour anytime soon. Why would they? Sneakers are cool, comfortable and go with just about EVERYTHING in your wardrobe. In fact, Cosmopolitan India editor Nandini Bhalla recently wore a metallic pair under a rani pink lehenga and we let out a collective cheer for great style + comfort. Then there’s power blogger Kayaan Contractor of Love And Other Bugs, whose “sneakers with everything” philosophy we absolutely adore. As far as platform sneakers are concerned, these uniformly thick-soled shoes are ridiculously comfortable as they are chic. From casual slip-ons to the hi-top variety, there’s an array of platform sneakers available for you to choose from online. Team them with a turtleneck and distressed skinnies for a day trip. Or you can accessorise them with your sweatshirt and midi pencil skirt to look rad.
