Much like history, fashion often repeats itself and the platform is no exception. Platforms first gained popularity in the 70’s, paired to perfection with bellbottom jeans, then made a comeback in the 90’s with the growth of grunge. And this season these pumped up kicks are back in a big way, reaching heights upwards of five inches (like this one from YRU!).
Third times a charm? Whether you want a little lift or a lot, Heels.com has a platform to suit your everyday style.
