It's the beginning of the Fall 2019 fashion circuit, folks, starting with London Fashion Week Men's, which wrapped on Monday. Not only will we start to see what could potentially fill our wardrobes later this year, but we're also getting a glimpse of what exactly the street style crowd — comprised of influencers, editors, buyers and other industry experts — is loving right now. 

In London, it turns out a certain club-culture staple is at the top of everyone's aesthetic list: platform sneakers, particularly from brands like Buffalo London and Eytys. Dr. Martens was also spotted in the mix with its increasingly popular chunky Jadon boot. Will this sky-high footwear trend continue for the remainder of fashion month? Probably yes, as these stylish shoes could serve as a more fashionable snow boot when winter weather kicks in. Though, we highly suggest just wearing an actual pair of trusty snow boots. We don't want any major slips or falls off the runway, too. 

Catch you back here again after Pitti Uomo!
