Once synonymous with 70s Goa Trance, 80s ravers and club kids, the Spice Girls (1994) and today’s increasingly popular techno/electronica music genre — extreme platforms boots (ranging in six to eight inch heights) are staging a comeback amongst designers, fashion celebrities and UK ‘IT’ girls. Stylesight’s London correspondents caught wind of this emerging trend at last year’s 1234 Shoreditch Festival where young ladies rocked sporty sneaker looks with high-waisted denim shorts. For Fall 2011, U.K. designers Moon Spoon Saloon teamed up with original German boot brand Buffalo for a collection of super-edgy styles emblazoned with colorful paint splatter or graphic prints. Don’t worry about falling down like Lady Gaga, these boots are constructed on lightweight compressed layered foam flatforms and features sporty tread bottoms — perfect for channeling your “inner club kid” and dancing the night away.
