Trendspotting: Platforms

Platforms dominated the runways of Spring 2015 Fashion Week. Read on and we will show you a sea of shoes that caught our attention during the shows:

Chunky and comfy is a trend we definitely love. Looks like the 70's is making it's way to our daytime shoes essentials!

Lacing it up also sems to be a platform trend. Even the re- emerging trend of gladiator sandals have been given platform heels this season. We love Alexander Mc Queen's take on this while Sacai showed a work boot inspired open-toed platform shoes.

 Stella McCartney was blogger Chiara Ferragni's platform of choice.

Who can resist the extra height that platforms give minus the pains of wearing high heels? Do you want to steal the look, make it more casual, and wearable with any outfit?  It can be done with some Italian heritage ...Superga. Superga is the go-to brand for those seeking stylish and comfortable footwear for all occasions with a cool yet understated and chic, casual sensibility. The 2790 Flatforms are a cross between a flat plimsoll and a platform shoe featuring a chunky vulcanised rubber sole.

The white is a must-have as it goes well with any outfit. They are especially cute with dresses and shorts. Mix and match with the other styles and walk with a few extra happy inches!
