The platform Vans shoes tote funky updates to the classic footwear brand that help bring the company into contemporary times.

Known as a quitenssential shoe brand for skateboarders, Vans has come to be praised by the young and old as a comfortable sneaker for urban life. The new styles offered take the brand in a new fashion-forward direction as opposed to the classic route they often follow. Platforms, high tops, sequin-embellsihed and sparkle-inspired are all styles that are being added to the iconic urban brand. In addition, bold neon shades are adding an extra "oomph" to help push the selection into unchartered territory.

Gone are the days when Vans was solely for the skate culture, as now everyone can find a favorite amongst the lavish shoe label. Stats for Lavish Platform Skate Shoes Trending: Older & Mild
