While some trends we leave all to the kids, platform sneakers is one that I love and okay, so do my girls. It’s a way to get a little style into your comfortable footwear (or vice versa) and, if you’re not Kristen (ha), to get a little more height!
If you’re like me, and have platform sneakers on the brain — maybe after having seen Rocket Man? — here are a few super cool, go-with-anything styles I’m loving for fall.

Fila Disruptor 2 Platform Sneaker
Filas are so hot again, and so is rose gold. So I love these uber chunky sneakers in black or white, with a rose gold logo accent. ($64.99, Journeys)
Keds Triple Up Metallic Twill Platform Sneaker
Metallics are still so hot, and even Keds is in the game giving their classic sneak a lift at a nice price. ($64.95, Keds)
PS They have a good selection of platform styles for your kids too; don’t miss their cool platform sneaker for kids in a stylish triple-tone denim.
Superga Acot Linea Platform Sneaker
I’m a huge Superga fan, and I love that they’re making them now in 6 elegant neutral upper colors with a chunkier heel. Swanky! ($80, Nordstrom)
Nike Sage Low Platform Sneaker
If you can’t give up your Nikes, well hooray, they’ve got a fashion sneaker with a platform in 4 colors. Though if this is the “low” version, I’d hate to see the high. ($100, Nordstrom)
Nike Sage Low Platform Sneaker in Faux Suede
If you want to save a bit on the same Nikes as above only in suede, Nordstrom has a nice deal right now on this gorgeous berry color — 33% off! ($66.98, Nordstrom)
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Canvas Lift Platform Sneaker
Yep, even Chucks are getting into the platform sneaker game with a chunkier heel in white or black. Classic! Yet cool. ($64.95, Converse)
Nike Air Force 1 Sage Low Platform Sneaker
A reboot of their original 1982 Nike Air sneaker, these kicks have a sweet update with two cool colors including this cool topaz gold, and a higher platform heel. ($100, Nordstrom)
Vans Ward Hi Platform Sneaker
If you prefer high-tops and skate style, check out these Vans! Kohl’s has them in a low-top too but in more limited sizes. ($69.99, Kohl’s)
Linea Polo Kai 2 Platform Sneaker
If you want to go more swanky than sporty, I totally love this leopard print slip-on. In fact, leopard prints are everywhere this fall…might have to do a roundup of my favorites next. ($129.95, Zappos)
