Do Not Want: Jeffrey Campbell Platform Sneakers

By: Leonora Epstein / March 27, 2012

When “Clueless” heroine Cher Horowitz declared, “You try driving in platforms,” we’re guessing she may have been wearing these Jeffrey Campbell platform sneakers, which, we presume, Campbell designed by putting a pair of Adidas on steroids. In fact, we can think of a whole number of activities these 4.5-inch shoes would limit you from doing including climbing up stairs, square dancing, standing, and, um, walking. Although, one intrepid shopper does comment on Urban’s site, “OMG. So I bought this pair of shoes to go to the gym because I wanted to look stylish. You would not believe the attention I received because of this pair of ah-mazing shoes. Yowza. My friends are super mega jealous and like they totally want to buy them. Coolness. Super comfy and tres chic!” [Urban Outfitters]
