Cue the nostalgia: The resurgence of platform shoes has taken over the runways, and now, our closets. Back in spring 2021, Versace introduced us to their fall collection, which featured satin platform pumps in an array of dreamy colors. Since then, everyone from high-end designers to affordable and accessible brands have followed suit and rebranded the platform shoe as a wearable necessity that we all need to have in our wardrobe.
Don’t let the height scare you away. Most platforms offer enough stability to keep you comfortable while you walk (though a few practice strides around the living room never hurts). Whether you're looking for a pair of Converse sneakers with a little bit of height or a four-inch Mary Jane pump, we have you covered with 12 pairs of platform shoes you'll see everywhere this spring. Below, find our curated edit of platform shoes to style all season long.
The sage goatskin leather pairs perfectly with a bamboo-inspired platform heel on Cult Gaia's Judith Platforms. Style with cargo pants and a white tee for that effortless warm weather look.
Available in two colors, a luxe ivory or a bright orange citrus, the Jinger Platform Clog is fashion forward while also providing comfort. Pair with gold accessories to accentuate the shoe's hardware.
Take a taste of the rainbow with Gucci's multicolor platform slide sandals. With just over a 2 inch platform, these sandals provide just enough height with maximized comfort. Style with any monochromatic look to bring out the colors in the stitching.
Simon Miller has never done wrong with its platform shoes. If you're the type who needs a boot for every season, the High Raid Boot in white patent leather is the gal for you. Pair with flared pants, a mini skirt, or anything in between.
The perfect everyday sneaker that will elevate any look whether you're styling shorts and a tee or a mini floral dress.
What's better than one platform? A double platform. Straight from the runway is Versace's Medusa Aevitas Platform Pump. The ankle-strapped heel is offered in numerous striking colors, though we're swooning over the lavender shade for spring. Any outfit becomes a statement with this heel.
A summer moment we're living for, the Miso Platform Sandal is a great transitional piece from spring into summer. Style alone or with ankle socks for an extra layer on those brisk spring mornings.
A classic Converse, but better. With a slight lift and canvas front, the All Star Platform Sneaker is a trendsetting shoe with a terry cloth tongue and vintage Converse logo.
Offered in eight luxe colorways, the Zoe Platform is a must have for the season. Combining bold colors with soft fabrics, style these with your favorite pair of jeans and a light jacket for a spring night out.
Inspired by your favorite merlot, Veronica Beard's Dali Platforms add a touch of cork to a classic platform pump.
We can't get enough of the Trixie, a platform heel that will have heads turning as you make your grand entrance wherever you go. While we're partial to the vibrant green, the shoe is also available in checkered patterns and other bright colors.
Just because the weather warms up doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to your Uggs until next winter. The brand offers plenty of platform options, but these suede platform slides might just be your new everyday footwear.
Naked Wolfe has become synonymous with sky-high platforms across all its footwear styles (scroll through the brand's website to see sandals, thigh-high boots, mules, and more with unbelievable height). The brand is loved by Hailey Bieber and Olivia Rodrigo, so you know you can't go wrong.
The chunky black sandals of your youth are back. In case you've gotten rid of yours (or grown out of them), rest assured the platform thongs are still affordable and very much available for your Y2K rebirth.
