The shoe game on the S/S’18 runways (click here to see our favourite – and most wearable – ones) were on fire. We saw everything from Chanel’s thigh-grazing plastic heels to Balenciaga’s unforgettable platform crocs and Louis Vuitton’s thick dad shoes.
One unexpected trend that we found (and loved) on the runway was the return of the 70’s inspired platform heel. Slippers and sandals for Spring are obvious, but these chunky, towering (and surprisingly comfortable) sandals? Not so much. Nonetheless, they were a hit on the catwalk.
Looking for inspiration on how to style them? Here are some of favourite ways, fresh off the runway.
Who knew that platforms heels would look so good with PJs? From the silky slip dress to the furry vest, this get-up gets extra points from us for being comfortable yet uber chic. Recreate this look for an instagram-worthy flight outfit.
#2: Tonal Outfit
We still aren’t over the tone-on-tone look. This all green ensemble from the New York City based label might seem intimidating at first, but is actually surprisingly easy to recreate — considering that it could be as simple as picking out pieces of the same/similar hues.
#3: Canadian Tuxedo
Adam Selman went for a fail-proof denim on denim look for this pair of platform heels. The white Canadian tuxedo get-up featured a blue floral print at the end of the sleeves which matched perfectly with the blue footwear.
#4: Floral On Floral
Alice + Olivia took florals to the next level with this head-to-toe floral outfit. If you’re more experimental with your style, put your own spin on this bold number.
#5: Trench It Up

We’re digging how the bold zebra-print heel was paired with matching shorts and topped with a camel trench to tone-down the look. If you’re not ready for a statement outfit, this one’s a great option for you.
