2009: The Summer of the Platform Shoe

By |   July - 10 - 2009

This summer shoe styles all about the sandal and height and I think the best way to get both are with the platform sandal. It’s a great way to add towering height to your look without all the pain. By raising the toe box of the shoe in addition to the heel you get a much more comfortable shoe, the only problem is it’s still a long way to fall and twisted ankles can be a problem if you’re not an accomplished walker.

Jennifer Lopez

JLO is rocking a sexy pair of gold platform shoes that give her understated black outfit that little bit of bling that it needed. I’m not sure why Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony look so unhappy but you’ll be happy to know you can find a similar pair of shoes with the Seychelles Women’s Push Up. Wear your tip top gold sandals with simple outfits to give them some shimmery pop but not too much.

 

Victoria Beckham

Love to hate her but love her shoes, Victoria Beckham knows how to rock out the platforms and here she’s adding pop to an all black outfit with pink platforms with wrappy ankle straps. You can create a similar look with the Pleaser Womens Lip-135 which feature a clear vinyl heel, a pink upper, and a wrap around ankle strap. You’ll love how “posh” you look in these heels.

Cheryl Cole went a different route and decided to match her shoes to her outfit but picked two summer shoe trends to give them a little more pizzazz. Her snakeskin metallic platforms are the perfect way to pump up this summer white outfit. Emulate her look with the Naughty Monkey Women’s Whipped Me Around sandal with its tonal snakeskin textured trim and studded hardware. These shoes are actually great for several summer looks and can almost be your go to shoe for the season.

Kid Rock’s latest girlfriend, May Anderson, is proving my point about some platforms being nearly impossible to walk on. Her shoes featured a stiletto heel and a ball under the toe. I can’t find a pair of shoes that even compare to these and I’m not sure why anyone would want one. So, instead of those death shoes, how about the Women’s Ashley Wedge by Michael Michael Kors which gives you an unusual architectural heel a great platform height and a shoe you can actually wear.

If it’s comfort you seek without sacrificing the current fashion trends try on some Women’s Comfort Sandals from a retailer retailer such as Footsmart.com.
