  1. I own platform sneakers even though I was skeptical, they are comfy and go on everything as long as the platform isn’t too high and you buy them a neutral color.

  2. I would love to try out this trend but I don’t know what outfits would look best with it. It would be awesome if CollegeFashion could do an article on how to wear platform sneakers!
