The Chloe Sevigny Platform Sneakers provide a twist to nostalgic 90s apparel. The classic Chuck Taylors are a staple of the generation's style, often paired with plaid and band t-shirts. This set of shoes takes the look one step further, or rather higher. A 1.75" rubber platform distinguishes these shoes from the rest, adding a feminine touch to what would otherwise be an androgynous piece.

These Sevigny sneakers are currently being sold in black and white and are made of standard canvas. The lace-up feature is fashioned of cotton and also features comfortable padding around the ankle.

Those wishing revisit or emulate bits of the past will welcome this genre of footwear. Sevigny has been known to work with retro themes, and her affinity for the grungy era is apparent here.
