These Are the Marc Jacobs Platforms You Can Actually Wear

Fashion followers have likely seen the astonishing 8-inch platform boots that Marc Jacobs sent down the runway for spring ’17. While models including Gigi and Bella Hadid (who fell during the Michael Kors runway show earlier this week), Karlie Kloss and Kendall Jenner managed to stay upright, it’s not exactly practical to wear these shoes on the street.

Thankfully, Jacobs did make a more practical pair for fall that is perfectly walkable. Kendall Jenner arrived at Jacobs’ show wearing a patent leather version that has a 4.5-inch heel and a 3-inch platform. She paired the boots with a leopard-print slip dress and jacket.

The boots are also offered in a python-stamped leather and liquid patent with a glittery finish.

Jenner is a master at styling ankle boots — lately, she’s favored pairs by Kenneth Cole and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
