There's no doubt that incredibly high platforms are a major theme for the upcoming spring/summer 2012 season. But there's something that sets Jeffery Campbell's collection of wedges apart from all the rest: holes.
The cut-out wedges featured in these sky-high platforms are flirty and unique. Walking on a platform with cut-outs adds a danger factor to the whole outfit and it instantly transforms the look to the next level.
The windows in these wedges make for a light-weight feel making them surprisingly easy to walk in, despite their risky first impression.
This is not Jeffery Campbell's first season where cut-out wedges are featured, however this trend is blowing up across the board with other designers for the Spring/Summer 2012 shoe season. Jeffery Campbell has mastered the art of cut-out wedges this season and will be featured with several runway collections.

Implications - Platforms have already started to make a huge impact on the shoe industry, making a massive comeback. For edgier and more avant-garde firms, be prepared to step it up with wild geometric innovations to the styles to stand out.
