The Converse Platform Lift sneakers are among favorites for those who like classics but also want to stand out. This is one of the most popular Chuck Taylor spin-off, specially designed for ladies but not only. Along the usual editions in black, white or pink, more recently this style has been included in special collections where Converse collaborated with Miley Cyrus, Hello Kitty or MadeMe. As with the original Converse All Star sneaker these are easy customizable and sky is the limit as far as what's yet to come. Low as well as hi versions can be found in various series released over the years.
The upper of the Converse Platform Lift sneakers is usually made of the classic, sturdy canvas. There are two versions, one with laces and slip-ons that still have the eyelets but there is no need for laces. The vulcanized sole is raised about 1 1/4" - 2" on a midsole platform, just enough to give you a lift without loosing style. The durable outsole features the All Star logo on the heel, one that also shows up on the tongue. Recent editions have had the midsole customized with either rainbow colors, stars or lettering.
All in all the Converse Platform Lift is a must have for those looking for a fashionable, comfortable and durable shoe with a slight height boost. Various versions are available at the retailers shown below with some on sale.
