There are always just a few parameters on which to judge a pair of shoes: comfort and appearance. Even though we've had to learn the hard way that the latter should matter less than the former, we can't help but treat ourselves to a good-lookin' pair of shoes every now and again. And right now, we've got our eyes set on statement platforms that give us a little of both.
Soaring at three to five-inch heights, these platforms make anyone look like they've got legs worthy of their own glossy magazine cover. And despite how unpractical they might look, these sky-high platforms are actually an essential in many a fashion girl's wardrobe. Why? Because the thick heels and supportive platforms beat out a stiletto any day. We'd certainly would rather be wobbling on something with a little more square footage than a skinny-mini heel that's going to fall into every crack on the sidewalk. Wouldn't you?
