Over the years platform shoes have been used for a variety of reasons. They were used in Ancient Greece in order to give height to the important characters in the Greek theatre and it has also been rumoured that platform shoes were worn in the 18th Century in order to avoid the dirt on the streets. Today, when we think of platform shoes, we often think of the extravagant styles that were seen in the 70's and 80's, or we think about the gorgeous range of platform shoes that are well and truly in fashion today! Platform shoes usually have a rather high heel and a raised sole in order to slightly even out the height of the heel - this raised sole is the platform itself.
Platform shoes - killer heels that won't kill your feet!
Platform shoes are often considered to be more comfortable than regular heels as there is not as much pressure placed on the ball of the foot. The platform prevents the foot from being at such an angle without taking away from the height of the heel. Platform shoes are available in a huge range of different styles from sandals and wedges to boots and full shoes, meaning that there is a style of platform shoes that will go with every outfit! Platform shoes will provide you with that bit of extra height, making your legs look that little bit longer and more slender - perfect if you wish your legs were just an inch or two longer! So whether you want to show off gorgeous lean legs with a great mini dress or skirt, or even if you are looking for a glamorous pair of boots to give you that extra height, make sure you have a look for the perfect platform shoes for you! They might even be ideal for a long dress or jeans in order to stop them from dragging along the floor!
