Hold Tight, Spice Girls Shoes Are Making A Comeback

Just like the Spice Girls, the poster girls of the style, these chunky kicks are returning in a big way.

Temper the hard edge of these thick shoes with more polished separates.

After seasons of ladylike shoes and pretty footwear styles, the reigning crop of casual kicks is coming out with a big bang. The kind of rebellious streak you’d associate more with Gothic Lolitas and Harajuku girls who are known for their super thick platform soles on combat-like shoe styles — ones we see at brands like Gucci for Resort ’19. Uncannily, the return of this high octane style coincides with another comeback of the Spice Girls — the girl group best associated with the aesthetic — who are reuniting next June for a series of concerts. Hai Si Ja, hold tight.
