But one thing these kicks lack is height. Not so with the hefty platform sneaks popping up on the scene lately. With thick rubber soles and traditional lace-up styling, these '90s-throwback styles add just the right lift. 

And, just like their flatter-soled brethren, theses babies are super versatile. Check them out on Busy Phillips, who paired a pale pink pair with a sundress at Coachella.
