Platform Sandals Are It, so I Found the 42 Best Pairs
Everyone has that one thing they love shopping for—maybe denim, luxe staples, or rising trends—but it’s always shoes for me. Searching for unique affordable heels or saving up for a great pair of strappy sandals brings me more joy than I care to admit. While I don’t like to play favorites when it comes to my babies, one shoe trend has my full attention: platform sandals. And I know for a fact I’m not the only one obsessed with platform shoes right now. If you scroll through Instagram on any given day, you’ll conclude that platform’s popularity has reached new heights. In part, this is due to dreamy it-shoes making this trend float to the top of every fashion girl’s wishlist; but really, it’s just because there are so many ways to wear platforms.
The platform shoe trend is arguably the easiest style to incorporate into any wardrobe right now (as you can find it in various iterations). You really can’t go wrong with adopting any version of this shoe because, well, they’re all cute. That being said, with summer on the horizon, it only makes sense to invest in a pair of platform sandals. So, I’ve scoured the internet to narrow down the best platform sandals to shop at every price point. From minimal to colorful, affordable to luxurious, there’s a platform sandal ahead for everyone.
