what’s old is new: platform shoes

many a fine shoe have passed through our little shop, and as many of you know, shoes are my passion (i occaisionally host popups where footwear is the main attraction) i’ve always been a fan of unique footwear and was thrilled by the resurgence of platforms a few years back…and they seem to be here to stay. maybe they aren’t for everyone, and not everyone knows how to rock them, but they are beautiful as an object at that.
