Platform shoes are easily fashion’s most polarising fads this year. And why not? Who doesn’t love a bit of height. These stomp shoes vary across the footwear spectrum and while some may look bizarre some can help you pull an elegant look. From streetwear style to punk, these chunky steppers are not only a want but a need.
Plus, it’s almost Detty December in Ghana. The post-pandemic edition. So you know fo’sho that it’s going to be crazy lit this year. I mean Wizkid is headlining Afrochella in Accra this. You want to be there. And platform shoes should be your ladder and chosen footwear.
Here are 8 platform shoes which will have you chic and towering at concerts this Detty December.
1. Platform Brogues
Three tiered and toothy, these preppy shoes usually come in neutral shades. They fit with near everything. From short skirts to denims to long dresses. Our advise? Wear this when you want to show some leg.
2. Platform Sandals
Yes, it’s the 2000s all over again with this one. Spaghetti tops that show the belly button, short skirts to feel the breeze and beaded and braided hair. Platform Sandals are campy but a damn fashion killer. Miu Miu’s denim pair go well with OOTDs.
3. Platform Sneakers
Every step will make you feel like the African Giant with these. The Nike Vandal 2k is particularly a favourite. The soles are car-tyre thick as usual but the shoes are cut from the classic canvas we all remember. Get you a pair to boost your outfit and your height.
4. Platform Mules
Whether open or closed-toe, a simple pair of platform mules is the perfect choice to slip your feet into. Varying soles and designs are offered with these. Variety is the spice of life. A simple pair of black platform mules fit almost every aesthetic. Check them out.
5. Platform Clogs
Clogs just like platform sandals are have re-entered the chat. Youthful and feminine, platform clogs don’t try too much (the one above does though) and that makes it a perfect choice for someone looking for something simple for a sundress.
6. Platform Boots
So you feisty, huh? You’re a fashion killer and you want the scene to know. Very well. We’ve found your shoes Princess Cinderella. Platform boots are mammoth and endearing but they make a statement. A leather or rubber pair are remarkable with tulle skirts. Wear these and the Dada Ba loves won’t be able to help but stare (in a good way, of course).
7. Platform Flip-flops
Check out the print design on these Tory Burch platform flipflops. Snazzy, right? These marshmallow flip-flops are an easy wear for a simple outing for brunch, a food fair or the beach. Slip your feet into them and let your toes breathe while you gallivant and explore the good vibes that Christmas in Decenber has to offer.
8. Platform Loafers
This behemoth takes its place as the last platform shoes on our list (cue the Matrix Revelations OST). These mean-looking shoes are crazy intimidating and if that’s the look you want to achieve then bulldoze your way with these chic pair. We suggest you wear them with denim or leather and a pair of black shades. Go and serve some Trinity this Detty December.
