Platform boots are poised to make a major comeback this season, but if the super-tall style isn't for you, Amal Clooney may have the perfect alternative. The human rights lawyer and source of major sartorial inspiration was on set visiting her husband, George, wearing a pair of platform slingbacks by Jimmy Choo. The style may not be one we've seen a ton of lately, but Clooney proves exactly why these shoes are seriously genius: They're incredibly easy to walk in.
While navigating through the grass in a pair of heels is tricky (anyone who's been to an outdoor wedding knows exactly what I mean), with wedges, the risk of sinking a stiletto disappears. Instead, you get the lift you're looking for without the need to tread quite so carefully—phew. So, if you have a fancy occasion on the calendar that may require stepping off the sidewalk, you may want to consider taking cues from Amal Clooney.
