34 Playfully Peculiar Platforms

Add A Little Zest To Your Waredrob With These Dynamic Platforms

— January 15, 2014 — Fashion
Shoes are the piece that make or break any look, but with a pair of dynamic platforms, you're sure to look good no matter what.

Tracking back to the delightful disco days of the 70s, platform shoes have been adding a little quirk and style to outfits for years. These high-rising pumps are bound to elevate anyone up the style scale -- and quite literally. Platforms add edge and a certain playfulness to any look that once looked too drab to be seen in public in. From rainbow-covered heels to transparent prop filled pieces, these funky pieces of footwear are sure to have you reaching for the sky and rejoicing in the name of great style.

Dynamic platforms transform you from boring and plain to out of sight and dynamite.
