Were only on Day Three of Tokyo Fashion Week 2018, but in that short time, one thing became very clear about this season’s street style — it’s all about the platforms.

From brogues to boots to sneakers and hybrids, the heightened style is simply ubiquitous. And while the sole may vary, from a low-key to sky-high, any semblance of a platform undoubtably amps up any look. Scroll through to check out one of the biggest shoe trends from the streets of Tokyo right now.

Sturdy-looking leather platform shoes courtesy of Louis Vuitton stood out, worn with monogrammed Gucci socks. Featuring espadrille material, stud detailing and ropelike laces, the style almost has a creeper feel to it.
