17 Platforms To Snag Before Summer Is Up!

Dogs Platforms are a girl's best friend. They come in different breeds from pumps to flatforms to wedges. You can walk (in) them. And, they've literally been around for centuries, popping up as the years rolled by in very different cultures. The human-platform love affair has been a long one, and it isn't ending anytime soon.
Since we're beyond loyal to platforms, it's only fair that we round up some of the finest summer steppers before we transition to fall. Some might be better with kids than others, but there's definitely a pair for you. Click through and meet your match!
