What’s a good alternative to heels and sandals, you ask? Platform sneakers. These shoes give you that height boost without sacrificing comfort and as Gigi Hadid proved on Monday, they’re perfect for walking around the city in. The model was spotted out with her mother and wore a pair of pink chunky sneakers from Buffalo London x Opening Ceremony.
The ’90s-inspired sneaker will definitely bring back memories of your childhood platforms (um, remember wheelie sneakers?), though I admit Hadid’s 2018 version is way cooler. Her millennial pink kicks even resembled this season’s It shoe—the dad sneakers—with an even thicker sole. The star styled the footwear with casual denim cutoff shorts and a white T-shirt with the sleeves rolled up. She appeared to be catching a flight out of town as she was seen getting into her car with her Away carry-on luggage.
Hadid isn’t the first to wear the designer kicks; both Madison Beer and Rita Ora own a pair of the $225 sneakers.
If you’ve fallen in love with the futuristic shoes, as I have, shop them ahead and then wear it with skinny jeans or a white summer maxi dress.
