50 Funky Platform Shoes

From Sleek Safari Kicks to Heart-Shaped Heels

— June 12, 2013 — Fashion
Platforms are a fantastic way to add some height to your appearance, and if you're looking for something a bit more exuberant and flamboyant to wear on your feet, then these funky platform shoes will certainly do the trick.

While some women would prefer to slip on a pair of stylish designer heels to give them some height and sophistication, these funky platform shoes are more geared towards those who aren't afraid to showcase their quirky and offbeat personalties. While platform shoes are often associated with the types of footwear worn by adolescent girls, these funky designs are bringing that youthful fashion choice back into the 21st century, showcasing all sorts of colorful and eye-catching designs.

From fruit punch footwear designs to chunky cheetah print wedges, these funky platform shoes will make anyone who wears them burst with personality and flair.
