Creepers. They're cool. They're edgy. They give you a little bit of height without the fear of twisting an ankle. Originally developed as a fashion item after World War II, creepers are now a universal fashion trend...kind of. I remember my boyfriend used to wear TUK's in high school & I thought they were the ugliest thing on earth. Well, my opinion on that has changed. Dramatically.
Stella McCartney is one of the only big name designers whose entire line is cruelty free. Her Elyse lace-up platform shoes retail at $1,070, but the high-shine metallic-silver faux leather upper, the chunky natural wooden wedge platform, & saw-edge white rubber sole give it so much character. Yes please!
Superga Pink White Hearts Suki Waterhouse platforms are pale pink with lovely hearts bordering the sole. Wear your heart on your sleeve? Maybe it's time to wear it on your shoes!
Want the ultimate girly shoe? The Hello Kitty Ombre Mondo Sole Creepers TUK Shoes are perfect for the pastel lovers out there. Or Hello Kitty lovers. Either way works for me.
I love how sleek the Classic Spring Creepers by MODEKUNGEN look. The synthetic leather & canvas with a ridged sole give this all white creeper its own way to stand out. It's a classic.
The floral design, round toeline, rubber sole, wedge heeled Primadonna Lace-Up Shoes from YOOX are ideal for spring. It has just a peep of floral to keep it relevant yet understated. Bonus points for it being faux leather.
Vans are a personal favorite of mine, so the Authentic Platform with a low top lace-up silhouette, platform sole, durable canvas upper, & metal eyelets is an all-around favorite. Black as night & perfectly versatile.
Which is your favorite pair of creepers? Do you own any yourself? Do you love or loathe the platform creeper trend? :]
