These Runway Shoes Are Begging To Be Instagrammed

Platforms taller than a can of soup and leggings with built-in shoes – who wouldn't spend 30 minutes Instagramming the heck out of these?

If good shoes take you to good places, then the shoes from the Spring/Summer 2017 runway will take you to really good places indeed.

Platforms are officially back, but be warned – these are in no way for the faint of heart. Maison Margiela, Miu Miu and Gucci all have a hand at bringing back the nineties, but it is the ridiculously high psychedelic disco platforms at Marc Jacobs that left us scrapping our jaws off the floor. Forget being just a head taller than everyone else because these are basically stilts.

Balenciaga and Vetements prove that boots can indeed go higher than the knee with waist-high boots (no, seriously) and boots built into stretch leggings (no, seriously). Yeezy’s see-through vinyl boots are like the fashion girl’s equivalent of rainy day wellies. They don’t look like the most comfortable shoes around, but at least they end mid-thigh. Chafing is real, you guys.

Dolce & Gabbana shows yet again that party shoes are their thang with Mary-Jane platforms of roses, fringe and gemstones. At Alexander McQueen, Charlotte Olympia and Giambattista Valli, shoes are basically walking gardens.

Embellishments are fun, but sometimes all you really need is a single pop of detail. Loewe and Dries Van Noten keep the drama to their unconventionally-shape heels. Dior engages in logo mania with sling-backs sporting the word “J’ADIOR”. Yet, the most eye-popping of the lot goes to the simplest – Saint Laurent’s pointed black pumps, where the heel is shaped into its classic “YSL” logo. We can’t say if these will stop traffic, but they’ll start more than a few conversations for sure.

Which of these shoes do you see yourself Instagramming to death? Tell us in the comments. As it’ll be a while before these babies hit the shelves, head on over here for our edit of the sparkliest, most ostentatious shoes that you can shop right now.
