Platform Converse, what’s so special about them? They’re constantly sold out and extremely difficult to get your hands on. They’re sold at a variety of retailers, including Converse, Journey’s, Tilly’s, Nordstrom, and Urban Outfitters, but yet they’re never in stock. It’s like a battle trying to buy a pair. This is due to the fact that they have become one of the most popular fashion trends among teenage girls. They can be styled in a ton of ways, bringing comfiness and cuteness to every outfit. But still the question still lingers, why are they so popular? The platform raises your height by 12 inches, I’m 5’2 and they make me almost 5’4! They aren’t bulky or hefty in any way. They’re also reasonably priced. I have 5 pairs: I own both black and white platform low tops and high tops, and I also have a fun zebra pair. So speaking from a firsthand experience, these shoes are more than worth it. Converse also offers you a customization option, enabling you to be creative and design something unique. Making each of your outfits one-of-a-kind and personal. They also have a collection of leather platform shoes that are still casual but can spice up any outfit. Everyone, in my opinion, needs a pair. Particularly if, like me, you could use a bit more height. They’re without a doubt my favorite pair of shoes.
