platform trainers

The only reason I wanted to be a Spice Girl when I was younger was I wanted a pair of platform trainers. I would have sold my soul for a pair of Buffalo's, and remember begging my mum for a pair. Now that the 90s are back again, I am DELIGHTED to see the ridiculous pairs of platform trainers that are now available, and that I can now own (because I am adult enough to make a reasoned decision that a sprained ankle is totally worth it).
I bought a pair of three-inchers from ASOS last summer. Unfortunately, they didn't have a rounded sole at the front, and I had to stomp around in them. I wore them three times. Every time I wore them, I went over on my ankle so badly that it would take me a couple of weeks to recover from the fear, and they have now been retired to the shoe cupboard. Sad times! Here they are, in a photograph of me comparing them to my boyfriend's shoes: 

They don't look as scary in retrospect! However, I think I will stick to my Office Nenah's for now!

Topshop recently collaborated with Moonspoon Saloon and Buffalo, and came up with these beauties:

And, here are Jeffrey Campbell's offering, complete with lights in the sole:

The shoes that dreams are made of!

Unfortunately, the hefty price tag on both of these pairs means that my love will continue to be unrequited!
