I think these shoes have that love-it-or-hate-it quality. I love them, of course, which is why they are here. It’s like someone took grandma’s church shoes and gave them growth hormones. That platform just comes out of nowhere and goes “Pow Pow Pow!” 

I have a thing for lace, especially the white/cream kind (except at weddings — too obvious). It’s the romantic in me. And, please, how cute would these look with shorts?

$575 US ($589.79 CAD) at Shopbop.

PS. Make sure you check out all the other platforms by Opening Ceremony. They really got it goin’ on.
