Steve Madden Brings Back Platform Sandal of the 90's

It was only a matter of time...

April 12, 2019

First, the scrunchie clawed it's way back from fashion purgatory, now it’s the platform sandal. The ’90s are back, baby.

Word on the street (see “internet”) is that Steve Madden has teamed with Urban Outfitters to revive the shoe trend.

As a product of the ’90s, (Class of '99, what’s up!) I welcome the return of certain throwbacks with reservation. Fool me once and shame on you, fool me twice… you can’t get fooled again.

Shades of neon do little to claw these babies into 2019, in my opinion. Admittedly, even in the 90’s I bucked this trend in favor of combat boots. Former candy-raver types will almost certainly disagree with me.

But it doesn’t matter what line you draw or straddle between 2019 and 1990, the fashion is back for better or worse.
