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.
