Sneaker Junkie: The Platform on Platform Edition

by - March 12, 2013

Well, as predicted, I am back after a month (technically a little over a month but no one is really keeping track, right?). In the blink of an eye, I feel as though my spring semester as a junior has flown by and before I know it, it will be spring break. Professors aren't lying when they say spring semesters go by quick.

I have been keeping busy with school projects and papers as well as work but that's pretty much my lame excuse for not blogging. I sincerely wish summer would come so that I would have time to blog more often as I did the past summer!

Anyway, the shoe selection at my workplace has switched to sandals. I am (as most are) eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring and warmer weather to grace us all but oddly enough, I haven't been all that excited about sandals and such. Lately, I've been pining away at sneakers.

No idea why.

In the past shopping trip, I bought two pairs of sneakers, one right after the other. I seriously didn't even realize I had already bought a pair until I returned to the car with my second pair and discovered the bag sitting in the back seat...

{sigh} problems of a shoe addict. I'm sure some of you will understand.

The whole point of this post isn't to serve as a platform for my ramblings or to talk about my crazy shoe obsession! Today, I will be sharing loads of pictures of flatform sneakers that I have been craving since the Fall season. Apologies if I'm a little late in the bandwagon but I hope you enjoy this nonetheless.

Aldo's Nezvalle

Aldo's Mutou

Urban Outfitter's Y.R.U. Merk Elevation Flatform Sneaker

Nasty Gal's Zomg Platform Sneaker in Cosmic

MissKL's Jeffrey Campbell Hiya Sneaker in White Chain

SoleStruck's Jeffrey Campbell Homg in Black Floral

SoleStruck's Jeffrey Campbell Homg Stud in Black Suede Black

SoleStruck's Jeffrey Campbell Tronic in Light Pink Croco White

SoleStruck's Jeffrey Campbell Kirk in Bone Black

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So this has somehow turned into a Jeffrey Campbell Appreciation Post...not that I have a problem with that (hopefully, you don't either).

If it so happens that I end up straying away from my blog again, I promise to come back within a month. Most likely, I'll be coming up with some outfits for the spring/summer months in the next post so look forward to that :)

Speaking of shoes, I know in my last post I wrote something about sketching shoes and while I still have great interests, I haven't made much progress. BUT!

Here is one of them. I don't take credit for the design. I was actually inspired by a project that one of my classmates did in a Visual Merchandising class last semester and decided to draw it because I loved it so much.


Please ignore the embrace-the-relaxed-college-student-lifestyle hairdo and my choice of attire (two thumbs up for Big Bang Theory fans!).

Let me know how you guys have been and what you think of these shoes. I honestly love them but I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea or coffee or whatever caffeinated beverage you choose to consume.

See you all soon!

  1. It's so funny how so much of the 90's is coming back into fashion. I used to wear platform sneakers back in middle and high school. I don't think I'd wear them now, but I think they are cute on others. I like that floral high top pair! And keep wishing for spring break girl! It will be here soon! :) <3
