the ravers had their platforms professionally done so they had different layers of color glued together--like a rainbow..on their Nikes, Adidas, etc.

I soo had the official spice girl platform shoes.. I still see them clearly as anything. Metallic silver and white with like a bubble glittery puffed out plastic part going round the shoe in a wave shape and the platform itself was like bubbled layers of a foamy plastic. ;D I miss those, much tbh. :[ Then I went to high school in 2001 and got black platform shoes and wore far too big flared black trousers. x]

Haha... my mom bought me a pair of black and white ones, calling them "Spice Girl shoes", and the first day I wore them to school, I tripped off the sidewalk on the way to the car. My mom never let me wear them again. I was so mad, because it really was just a random accident; I could walk in them just fine.

I remember when I was like 7 or 8 and my older sister had a friend that gave her these purple platforms with pink and blue glitter and she ended up giving them to me and I would always wear them when we played Spice Girls. God I loved those shoes and I wish I never threw them out. If I stilled had them they would be concidered as stripper shoes.

I had dozens of these in middle school. Everything from flipflops, to boots, to dress shoes. The ones I had with wooden soles always made me sound like a horse trotting...lmao.
