I’m so taken with these Spring 2011 Prada platform oxfords.
They combine a classic shape with some serious rockabilly attitude, and I love the mixing of mediums – leather with foam and rubber. The unisex aspect is also really cool. And boys in platforms? I like it. They remind me of a pair of dress shoes I saw recently – leather wingtips with a glossy cerulean slick of a sole that looked like it was made of vinyl.
It’s kind of like that amusing old adage ‘business in the front, party in the back’, except it’s top and bottom, and there are no mullets involved (Amen).
