I’m not sure if any of you have noticed, but I have a small addiction (but an addiction nonetheless) to shoes. The biggest thing that I struggle with as a college student on a budget is when I fall in love with a pair of shoes on the runway and cannot possibly afford them. As a result, I have become incredibly good at finding quality shoes that look like those I swoon over on the runway.
A few months ago I became infatuated with the Stella McCartney platform shoes while I was shopping in New York, and naturally I could not get them off of my mind. From there my hunt for platforms ensued and along the way I stumbled into some great platforms that when added to a casual look, make you feel (and look) like a model off duty.
So lets talk about THE shoes, and shoes that I found that are from reputable brands/ stores that are duplicates of the famous Stella styles.
These are the shoes that I fell in love with while I was in NYC. I adore that these shoes can be worn both in summer and winter because they breath so well. I also was very pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the shoes from SheIn, I wore them for 8 hours at work and they felt amazing the entire time. A truly effortless way to turn heads and make a statement.
Honestly, it is near impossible to tell the difference between these two shoes. This pair of shoes can be seen all over on bloggers and celebrities (because it is amazing). So if you want to make a shiny statement this is definitely a great option. I also can attest to Jessica Buurmans quality; the shoes that I have from this site are all amazing quality and I will continue to shop there for sure!
Here is yet another great pair of Stella kicks! Although these are patent, they are probably the easiest to wear of the shoes that I posted so far. The mixture of white, brown and black essentially means that they will match every outfit, which is something that I dig because if I wanted to carry a brown bag ( as rare as that is) I could wear it with these shoes.
In short, all of the above shoes are awesome, and I would suggest them to anybody. Platform shoes are a killer way to get some height, make your legs look great, AND they are so easy to walk in. I think that this trend will continue to get bigger over the next 8 months or so. Although it is intimidating, there are tons of platforms out there that aren't all this high but will have the same benefits. Below you will find other platform/flatform shoes that I am completely infatuated with this summer.
