Add a Little Spring to Your Step, Part 3: Platform Heels

You can blame Christian Louboutin for reviving the platform heel a couple of years ago, and countless celebrities for making them as popular as they are today. By adding the platform to anything from a basic pump to a sandal, the platform heel takes already towering heels to new heights, creating a look that’s perfect for the warmer weather. Via Spiga - Rialto A classic high-heeled pump with a round toe that creates a sleek silhouette. The Rialto is an affordable take on one of this spring’s hottest styles, as seen on runways from New York to Tokyo. The black patent leather adds a sexy touch to this retro pump. Chinese Laundry - Buzz A stylish platform sandal that features patent leather upper with a flower design on the toe box. Shown in black and white, this platform sandal has a comfortable ankle strap, and a 4” stacked heel. A chic way to give a feminine look to any spring outfit. Dr. Scholl's - Cagey This woven leather slingback sandal is a unique warm-weather dress style in a neutral mustang brown hue. The inside features a smooth lining with a cushioned foot bed. The dressy midsole has a ½ inch sole platform and a 3 ½ inch tapered dress heel. Traction patterned sole for ease in mobility. Franco Sarto - Bijou The Bijou is a lovely strappy sandal with a ½ inch platform midsole, ankle strap with buckle, and contrasting stone ornament. The stacked, tapered heel measures 3 1/4" and in the black capra, it makes a great warm evening shoe. Touch Ups - Angel The Angel gives the traditional bridal sandal a bit of a lift by adding a platform to the bottom. It’s elegant and classy in smooth white satin, and features a thin ankle strap. It can be dyed to accentuate every dreamy detail of your outfit and is a favorite among spring brides and bridesmaids. Nina - Getaway Need a great strappy sandal for those warm spring and summer evenings? Then the aptly named Getaway is the perfect shoe. This oh-so-now metallic hued platform sandal features tiny rhinestone details on its front 2 straps and has a comfortable sling to secure your foot. The footbed is lightly padded for extended wear; the heel measures 3 ½ inches. Unlisted by Kenneth Cole - Too Soon The Too Soon platform slide is a sassy addition to any spring or summer wardrobe. The funky floral design adds a bit of much-needed spice after the cold winter months, and bright colors complement the natural tones of this spring’s clothing. The tapered heel measures 3 ½ inches.
