YAY OR NAY: Buffalo platform trainers
Cool kids wore them in the '90s, cyber Goths never stopped wearing them, and they've been lurking just below fashion's radar ever since. Now, it seems that Buffalo's iconic platform trainers could be making a tentative come-back, and we have to admit here at Shoewawa that we're a little worried about it. Do we really want to see these peculiar sports shoe hybrids on display once again?
We haven't had too many actual sightings of the shoes, but they are starting to pop up in some of the trendier boutiques again (Saranza is selling this style for £94 here), having been hiding in the murky depths of Camden Market and other alternative haunts for well over a decade. Will they soon be going the way of the wedge trainer and becoming everyday streetwear on the feet of Spice Girls revivalists, or will the wider style police give them a big, chunky-soled thumbs down?
Reader, it's over to you...
