PLATFORM SHOES: YOUR GUIDE TO STYLE, COMFORT AND FIT
Sunshine, heat, and endless evenings: the beautiful summer days we've been waiting for are here! This change of season also marks the return of an iconic shoe style. You may have already spotted them on your Instagram feed or on the catwalks, platforms are undoubtedly the shoe trend for Summer 2022.
90's nostalgia breathes new life into wedges and platform shoes which are back dominating runways and popular culture. Platform shoes are always a good choice, for a slim silhouette or an eye-catching addition to an otherwise plain outfit.
