I just can’t wait for the day that I can permanently put my waterproof boots away in my closet and bring out all of my summer goods.
Platform shoes were like an out of the hospital outfit when I was born (major major exaggeration) but with an alternative mother who loves the height, standing at 5 foot 4, I always seem to get my feet into her shoes until I grew at the height of my father.
When I was younger, by my peers, of course, I was told that tall girls shouldn’t wear heels because we would end up looking like Godzilla and that simply “wasn’t attractive.” For years I admired those beautiful shoes in the window and live vicariously through bold long-legged women confident enough walking down the street. Until… I simply started not giving a f**k.
There are a few benefits to platform shoes than just the height. Not only does it make your legs look gorgeous and a mini workout, but with the extra cushion of the wedge, it’s perfect for girls or guys like myself that have a high arch where it’s easy to get extreme foot pain from wearing shoes so flat the ground. You can find platforms in different styles for work appropriate and also casual for the weekends.
Speaking of finding great platforms, we have just the collection that you need to get all of your “moods” a run for their money.
