The Next Fashion Sneaker Trend? They've Gotta Have Platform Soles.

When sneaker wedges were all the rage, we knew that the trend would eventually sway across the style spectrum towards minimal designs in the form of simple slip-ons or all-white lace-ups. (Isabel Marant’s over-it-approval sealed the deal, too.) And now that fashion sneakers are suddenly starting to spot platform soles, it looks like we still want a bit of height when it comes to our casual footwear. We prefer this look with little details, like solid-colored canvas or leather, to compensate for the added inches. But the sneaker trend still looks good with hardware accents or textured materials or prints. The platform can add a bit of drama to the most casual look—think cropped mom jeans (or should we call them “relaxed fit?”) and a slouchy chunky knit sweater—or a playful vibe to your holiday party outfit. Check out our slideshow to see which platform-soled sneakers you’ll want to try on.
