The Style Stalker

Sneakers or heels? It's the choice that we certainly make every morning. Well, to get the comfort of one and the height of the other, turns out we can find middle ground with a cute pair of platform sneakers. Anyone who grew up in the Spice Girl era likely has a very specific image in mind of the towering footwear, but these days, a lifted pair of tennis shoes is only as obvious as you want it to be. In fact, there are plenty of subtle platform sneakers out there for your consumption.

To prove to you that, in fact, there's a cool way to pull off these leg-lengthening sneakers, we rounded up 15 of our favorite pairs. From statement-making styles (i.e., maybe ones to skip for work) to subtle sneakers with just a bit of lift, these are the flattering platform sneakers that instantly elongate the leg. So, women of all heights, wear with abandon. Check them all out below.
