There’s something incredibly satisfying about slipping on a pair of sneakers and going about your day. Maybe it’s the quick and easy process of inserting them that gets us, but their unique look also holds up for us. In the 90s, when the Y2K and Barbiecore fashion trends came back into play, platform heels became a major fashion accessory. Combine platform heels with sandals, and you have the best fashion trend on the planet: platform shoes. Their allure lies in their nostalgic style, slip-on ability and the fact that they’re trendy enough to pair effortlessly with high-waisted jeans, skirts and tights.
Platform shoes have defined themselves as summer “shoes”, but be sure that they can be layered with autumn fashion. A pair of lace-up Dr. Martens or TikTok’s favorite Gucci jelly slides that go with the latest fashion trends – there’s a platform shoe for every outfit, day or night, that’s perfect for summer and fall. From chunky platform heels that are a few inches shorter to your height, to heels that you can easily walk around in, check out our favorite platform shoes to shop now.
