The 90’s – the absolute glory days of music, film and style. Being the last phone-less era who was to know that decade’s later we would still be idolising their looks and obsessing over the coolest A-lister couples. It was the first modern-era full of sweater vests, bucket hats, platform sandals and bandanas.
That all sounds familiar… oh wait that’s because 90’s trends have made an almighty comeback! While there is a sense of nostalgia, they feel just as current as they did back then. It’s been over 20 years since the ’90s ended but you can tell the world hasn’t moved on, highlighted by the buzz around the friend’s reunion.
With all of us embracing the golden era, take a look at some of the 90’s footwear styles that are leading the way, letting us relive our youth but without all of the teenage-style disasters and bad skin.
#1 The Platform Sandals
Classic platform sandals are sweeping our summer wardrobes once more as we opt for a chunky, flat wedge. Names such as Steve Madden became industry leaders breaking the mould with the rebellious style and extra height. You can’t say Steve Madden now without thinking of Wolf of Wall Street and Jordan Belfort carnage office speech scene. Now with shapes from Vegabond, Karl Lagerfeld and Dr Marten these are the new styles we are going for.
