40 Perfect Platform Styles

From Psychedelic Space Shoes to Tropical Travel Footwear

— July 22, 2014 — Fashion
From psychedelic space shoes to tropical travel footwear, these perfect platform styles combine aesthetics with comfort. Turn any outfit into an attention-grabbing statement piece with these daring and vivid shoe styles. The wedge heel accessories ensure the height of a traditional stiletto without the added discomfort and are both a comfy and stable choice for high heel amateurs.

Make an edgy style statement and take a trip down memory lane with these fun and 90s themed accessories. The perfect platforms are reminiscent of styles worn by iconic girl group, Spice Girls and are a nod to the forgotten styles of our childhood days.

With its return into the fashion spotlight, the platform is the must-have shoe of the season. Pair any of these styles with a summer dress, high-waisted jeans or a mini skirt for a look that is instantly elevated.
