Cute Platform shoes are the comfortable alternative to the typical high heel. Platform shoes gained popularity during the 1970s. Seventies platform shoes came in many different versions including shoes, sandals and boots. Chunky Platform shoes were made popular in the movie, “Saturday Night Fever”. Who can forget John Travolta in his white, platform shoes dancing to the music of the Bee Gees? Lucky for us the platform didn’t fade away in the 1970s, instead it became a fashion staple of the 1980s. The edgy, yet comfortable Dr. Marten platform boot became the go-to uniform for the punk rock subculture. The 1980s saw British club goers opting for Dr. Marten platforms with skirts, fishnet stockings, and all black ensembles, while listening to the music of The Cure.
In 2022 the Platform shoe craze is just as popular as ever. Whether you pair them with a mini skirt, a cropped jean or a satin slip dress, statement platforms like the Embassy London Ruby, are a must-have in your closet.
