Where to Buy Platform Heels: The Nostalgic Shoe That’s Making Yet Another Comeback

From Ancient Greece to Lady Gaga at the House of Gucci premiere, platform shoes have come a long way. Platforms have been around for centuries, but the modern version of the shoe didn’t arrive until the 1930s, and their defining era came in the late ’60s and ’70s.

Different iterations of the platform were released throughout the ’80s, ’90s and into the millennium (those ultra-chunky foam platform sandals ruled the early ’00s). Technically, platforms never went away but they’re seeing a resurgence on the runways and on the feet of your favorite celebrities.

Gaga has been wearing platforms her entire career, but she’s not the only star who’s not afraid of heights. Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Normani and Halsey are just some of the recording artists who love platforms. If you have been thinking about taking your shoe game to new heights, we have a treat for you. Below, find a list of affordable platform heels, platform boots, platforms sandals and more platforms in different styles, colors and price points.
