Most of us spent our childhoods dying to trade wardrobes with the Spice Girls, and now, that dream can actually come true. There’s a line of Spice Girls shoes available in the U.S., and they come straight from the company that designed the group’s original signature platform shoes. Get pumped.
As Vogue pointed out, Buffalo London — the official Spice Girls’ shoe outfitter — is relaunching a shoe in honor of the girls, and it’s exactly what you would expect: bright yellow with a massive platform. This also marks the first time the brand is selling the shoes in the United States, so obviously this relaunch is a huge deal.
“Our brand was carried into the mainstream by a group of influencers — in the ’90s, it was the Spice Girls — so we loved the idea of re-creating this and bringing it into the spirit of today through some of the industry’s top influencers,” Alexandra Preusche, Buffalo London’s global marketing director, told Vogue. “We are excited for the U.S. consumer to discover the brand on the feet of today’s fashion crowd.”
Considering how much Spice Girls-related nostalgia (with those reunion rumors and all) is floating around right now, it’s no surprise that these Spice Girls shoes are a thing — and they’re actually pretty cute.
If you’re already in love with these Spice Girls platforms, make it a priority to grab a pair ASAP, because they’re only available for a limited time. Each month, Buffalo London is releasing a new, Spice Girls-inspired style, and unfortunately, once they’re gone, they’re gone. This is not the time to procrastinate.
The first pair of shoes is already for sale on HBX, and they come with a pretty hefty price tag at $225. But like we said, act fast, because some of the sizes are already sold out.
We’re waiting with bated breath to see what other designs the brand releases in the coming months. It’s like 1998 all over again.
