I’m looking for some kind of platform for spring. I’m liking the wood clog like shoes that are coming out. These Givenchy Studded Wood Platform Heels are the best ones I’ve seen yet. They are pretty high with a 5.25″ heel and 1.5″ platform. The rubber sole is promising for comfort.
These are crazy geta inspired shoes from Kenzo this season.Â Â My first reaction was pretty but I would never wear them but that has changed with time.Â I also have a lot of ridiculous platforms why am I judging these.Â I could see myself wearing the top two pairs.Â I love the prints.
Geta (ä¸‹é§„) are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resemble both clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, but (in Japan) also with Western clothing during the summer months. Sometimes geta are worn in rain or snow to keep the feet dry, due to their extra height and impermeability compared to other shoes footwear such as zÅri. (source: wikipedia.com)
There are times when I stare at my shoe collection looking for a simple heel. This always happens when I’m looking for something dressy or black tie. I like these Paloma Satin Platform Pumps by Charlotte Olympia ones because they have a platform and are pretty neutral but the little detail on the heel makes them different.
Charlotte Olympia is available at The Room by The Hudson’s Bay.
These Giuseppe Zanotti platform wedges are crazy high. They have a 6-inch heel and 2-inch platform. I’m loving anything pony these days and my stance on animal print is slowly crumbling.Â I really like it when it’s used for accessories.
I love platforms and I have a few high ones in my closet. I wonder what these are like to walk in. Any Giuseppe wearers out there care to comment?
