Platforms sneakers are every cozy girl’s best friend. The stacked shoes beat the need for heels and add extra space for additional detailing. Leading this season’s trend was Buffalo London, which returned with new colorways of its ’90s sneaker-boot. Nike quickly threw its hat into the ring debuting the Vandal Surprise in four warm weather hues. It’s clear that lifted runners are making a comeback and we couldn’t be more excited.

We’ve rounded up seven pairs from PUMA, Gucci, Converse and more to get your rotation started. Our top two picks go to Nike and Gucci. Adding three midsole layers to the 1985 Vandal silhouette brought it fully into the new age. We’re sure that this model will become a favorite of the year.
