Wooden platforms recently made their comeback on the spring runways for 2009. At Gucci, ankle-strap sandals were paired with slouchy skinny pants, cuffed to draw the eye to the shoe itself. At Ralph Lauren, the high wooden heels were worn with everything from khaki shorts to harem pants.

Miu Miu’s take on the trend was sleek and stylish with a few exciting embellishments, and not to be left behind in the cold weather, Frye came out with rocker-chic wooden platform shoes. 

The selection of wooden platforms to come is overwhelming. There will surely be something for everyone, regardless of what style you are wearing or how high you can stand your heels to be.  Stats for Wooden Platform Revivals Trending: Older & Chilly
