As we warmly welcome the 70s style this summer, we want to fully celebrate this era and finding the perfect pair of platforms makes you a definite winner. What’s even better? They’re actually comfortable to walk in!
Velvet platform sandals, £995, Victoria Beckham at Selfridges
These platforms embrace the classic chunky style of this type of heel. With a sandal-like structure and thick straps, a very bold shoe is created, which would be prominent with any outfit. The thin strip of pink adds something a bit different, especially as it gradients into wood on the tip.
HARLINGTON leather heeled sandals, £40, ASOS
These sandals lean slightly towards the casual side. With a ridged grip tread, they are more wearable during the daytime as they are practical, yet still look fabulous! The matte, cream leather paired with a chunky wooden platform sole, creates a very summery style.
This statement shoe is made from gold, metallic polyurethane. Suitable for going out or occasions, these could be pared with almost anything. The thin ankle straps create a rather dainty effect, whilst still keeping to the classic shape of the shoe.
Black strappy tropical print platform heels, £29.99, New Look
A little more daring than the previous shoe selection, these are a really interesting platform. Having used a vibrant print paired with an interesting crisscrossed strap, they are sure to accessorize your feet in a very bold fashion.
Black chunky block heel mules, £24.99, New Look
Another platform from New Look has a totally different style. It is wonderfully simple, with one thick strap to cover the majority of your foot, and a cute peep-toe. At an astonishingly affordable price, these are very attractive!
Pink high heel sandals, £130, Kurt Geiger
This shoe is rather simple, with its classic straps and heel. However, the use of pink snakeskin livens them up, creating a dazzling focal point for any outfit.
Bilie croc open back platform heels, £20, Boohoo
Encompassing both the open back and platform in this design, along with a modern foot strap, a completely unique piece has been formed. The black snakeskin is very classy and again, a more decorative alternative to plain leather.
Platform boots, £15, H&M
Suitable for casualwear, these boots are chunky but not extremely dressy. Focusing on a monochrome spectrum, it would work well with many things, and the little heel makes them easy to walk in. The metallic material adds a beautiful shimmer to them which would spruce up a casual outfit.
Jennifer pink platform heeled sandals, £18, Missguided
These platforms are essential for our new season wardrobe. The pastel pink, patent faux leather screams spring and pairing them with a light coloured wood creates a sweet style.
Talitha suede, £725, Louboutin
If you’re on the hunt for a wacky pair of designer platforms, Louboutin is the place to shop. This bold green colour is perfect for the vibrant summer months. With the thin stiletto and T-bar, these shoes would be perfect for occasions. Oh, and you mustn’t forget the trademark of the red sole!
