Top 10 platform shoes for spring 2015
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!
