The movement of using knitted uppers in footwear gained mainstream popularity through shoes like Nike Flyknits and Adidas Yeezys, but this technique has made a high-fashion debut at this year's Milan's Fashion Week for Spring 2017 when Salvatore Ferragamo definitely stole the show with its towering platforms that came in a variety of cuts and colors.

Fulvio Rigoni, head of Ferragamo's women's ready-to-wear, aimed to merge femininity with sports, hence he created these graphic knit platforms to showcase athletic chic in a variety of colors. Some styles came in full knit upper sneakers and some came in strappy sandal forms.

Ever since the Ferragamo Spring shoes have debuted, they have caught the attention of bloggers, footwear-based websites and magazine editors from Vogue.
