When you think of platform heels, you think of either ’70s-inspired footwear or sky-high heels. But for those who like a little height on their shoes without the pain that can come with teetering pumps (especially when you trip and fall), flatform and thick platforms are the way to go. But how do you get away with them for everyday living and work purposes? How can you have a little height and still rock functional shoes?
Here are seven cool platforms that are in the style of classic oxfords, wingtips and loafers. Add a little fancy to your basics and have fun while remaining functional.
