For the early adopters, platform sneakers have been trending for awhile now. If you’re a wild child of the 90s, Spice Girl-era, then the chunky dad shoe trend is just making its way back into fashion after a long hiatus. The way that all trends die and are reborn, today’s chunky, platform sneaker is new and improved. And instead of the Spice Girls, it’s Gigi Hadid who can’t get enough of the voluminous footwear trend.
The off-duty model accessory is a two-for-one: the soles provide a boost and the bulky shoes make Hadid look like a 90s fashion angel. While other people have been obsessing over the Buffalo platform sneakers, Hadid is all about Naked Wolfe. The Hong Kong-based brand was founded in 2016 and specializes in sky-high platform footwear.
Since taking a shine to the brand, Hadid has been spotted out and about in a number of their styles. From boots to sneakers, there’s no shoe that’s too bulky for the model.
Each shoe is relatively affordable, too, at about $150-200 per style.
