Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!), it’s comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.
Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:
Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!
Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!
Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!
Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!
MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.
