Remember these! Just when you thought that these shoes were going to be stuck in the 90s and 2000s, it comes right back around with a surprising welcome. These shoes are a true reminder that fashion repeats itself! Ladies and gentlemen I would like to re-introduce you to the chunky heel, platform sandals.

Fashion stores like Charlotte Russe and UrbanOG already have these shoes ready for purchase. So the question is, why are these shoes coming back into style?

Maybe people miss that summer sun, spring break, teen movie feel that represent summers in the 90s and early 2000s. I believe that these sandals are going to bring back the fun in spring. When I see these sandals I automatically think about Spice Girls and cheesy teen movies like Justin and Kelly. For others, the effect might be different. However, you don’t deny that they represent a time of true summer fun. Screen Shot 2015-01-17 at 1.10.48 PM

If you didn’t know, now you know! Whether you like it or not! I predict that these shoes are making the comeback this spring! Time to pull them out of your storage closet!
