Platform Flip Flops
Platform Flip-Flops that Will be Your Cool and Comfortable
Flip-Flops that Will be Your Cool and Comfortable Companions for the Rest of The Summer. While we admit that flip-flops were a disturbing footwear trend to embrace initially, we were eventually charmed by the ease with which the toe thongs can remain slipped on and off and the fresh air they provide our feet on a sweltering day.
The humble sandal, once reserved for a post-pedicure errand, resurfaced from the early 2000s camp scene on the runways of Isabel Marant and Michael Kors in the fall of 2017 before making several appearances among show-goers outside of Men’s Fashion Week and at Copenhagen Fashion Week the following year. During that time, They appeared in a flimsy, beach-ready form that did little to keep the bottom of the foot away from a filthy city street. Podiatrists, on the other hand, are overjoyed because they’ve since evolved to become chunkier and more supportive.
The Row, Rag & Bone, and Zimmermann debuted leather pairs with extra cushiony insoles for Spring 2020. Luxury footwear labels such as Ancient Greek Sandals, Atp Atelier, and Reike Nen were quick to respond with their platform versions, as were classic beach shoe brands such as Havaianas and Ipanema. Of course, we’ve chosen our favourite platform, flip-flops, which come in various colours and prices.

Platform flip-flops are making a comeback.
Big tops, or platform flip-flops, were nearly impossible to walk. In but were one of the most fabulous shoes you could own. They’re back with a modern makeover.
Rocket Dog collaborated with fashion expert and former Vanity Fair editor Elizabeth Saltzman to dress up the iconic style in bright colours, fabrics, and patterns. But, of course, if you prefer the classic all-black shoes, Rocket Dog has those.
“Life is circular, I believe there are many trends from the past. That we never want to see again, and platform sandals may be one of them for some. But not for me. It’s impossible not to smile when you see these shoes. And who wouldn’t want a little bit of that? these days of joy?” Refinery29 spoke with Saltzman about the collection.
