The platform has been a popular heel silhouette for almost as long as shoes have existed. Besides adding height, it’s dramatic but still relatively comfortable plus it has a youthful feel. The platforms we are loving right now are in some cases ’70s disco influenced, but there are also some ’90s rave-inspired flatforms we like, too. What makes these shoes current is an updated materials story vis-a-vis metallics, along with a brighter and whiter color palette, both of which combine as trademarks of the modern-day platform.
Retailers that are leading this trend are above all SoleStruck, followed by Asos, Zara and Free People and the two brands at the head of the pack are Y.R.U. and Jeffrey Campbell. See all of our favorite plus the stores they can be purchased at below.
