It looks like Steve Madden isn't the only retailer embracing their inner tween these days.
Remember Rocket Dog shoes? Those clunky, platform flip-flops known as "Bigtops" were nearly impossible to walk in, but one of the coolest shoes you could own. Now they're back with a modern upgrade.
Rocket Dog teamed up with fashion expert and former Vanity Fair editor Elizabeth Saltzman and decked out the iconic style in fun colors, fabrics and patterns. Of course, if you still want the classic, all-black shoes, Rocket Dog will have those, too.
"Life is cyclical … I think there are many trends we never wanted to see again from decades past and, perhaps for some, platform sandals are one of those trends. But not me. It’s impossible not to look at these shoes and smile. And who wouldn’t want a bit of joy these days?" Saltzman told Refinery29 about the collection.
