They are on the big side

Like many Chuck Taylor kicks, All Star Lift Platform Canvas also runs a bit wide according to the reviews. One tester even praised the roominess in the toebox that fits their needs. “It definitely runs big so sizing down is the best way to go,” advised a sneaker fan. Getting a half-size down is “the best decision [they] ever made,” they continued. “Ordered half a size down and they fit perfectly!” attested another reviewer. 

Platform height is spot-on

Sneakerheads love the height of these platforms. “These add just the right amount of balance between height and sole thickness,” said one tester. “The platform is subtle but still noticeable,” wrote one reviewer, “It is not too chunky and is very comfortable.” According to a sneakerhead, the sneaker has a “classic Converse look with a bit of height!” It also has a “perfect platform height!” exclaimed another fan.

The soles are supportive too!

Aside from the height boost, sneaker fans also mentioned the support coming from the footbed of the kicks. “I was not a fan of the traditional Converse,” a reviewer commented, “my toes would get squished and there was no support.” “These are completely different!” they added. “I think there is a lot more support for your foot from the platform,” explained one tester.

Break them in first

The kicks require a little break-in time. “First few days wearing have been kinda painful,” confessed one tester. “Got some blisters the first time I wore them, but that happens,” said another user. “Took a little breaking in,” said one tester, “but feel great and comfy and will last for years.”

Good to know

  • The upper is easy to clean said some testers.
  • According to one reviewer, one thing they like about the platforms is that the tongue doesn't slip too much.
  • They are actually light on foot and “not heavy like you would expect,” said a tester.
