Any '90s girl will have vivid memories of clunking around in a pair of surprisingly comfy, yet heavy, black platform slides. They were a staple of any girl's wardrobe, and now, Steve Madden's slinky platform sandals are making a comeback.

I didn't even think it was humanly possible for one more trend from the nineties to become popular again, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see these sandals make a triumphant return. These were my favorite shoes back in the day.

Unlike a lot of nineties trends that have been altered for 2017, the slinky sandal is back in all of its original glory. The only changes that have been made to the design are very practical ones — the edges have been rounded and the heel is flatter. They're the real deal with a subtle technical upgrade.

The Steve Madden Slinky platform sandal is currently available for preorder on They cost $69.95 and are expected to ship out in early July, which isn't terrible, but I must say, I'm rather anxious to get my feet into a pair of platform slides like these again. I hope the immense interest from the public will encourage Steve Madden to get these beauties on the market sooner.
