After almost two years of confinement spent in sneakers and tracksuits, it’s no surprise that designers from Versace to Valentino – and therefore also the most stylish influencers and it-girls on the planet – have changed their tastes in footwear material. Exit the practical side, glamor is essential again… and the rise of platform shoes has demonstrated this for a few months.
A few years ago, the platform signed an unexpected marriage with basketball. With its emblematic model called “Triple S”, Balenciaga demonstrated that basketball can gain height while remaining cool.
It was then on our boots that the platform arrived… before bewitching our heels! Seen on the feet of models on numerous fashion shows, platform heeled shoes promise to be THE trend for spring/summer 2022.
Platform heel shoes: the sandal version that will be all the rage!
For the past few months, the “Medusa” platform shoes from the Italian label Versace have been absolutely EVERYWHERE! It is indeed Donatella Versace, who has always looked like a perfect Barbie doll, has succeeded in the crazy bet of making us love these heels as dizzying as they are original, with an ankle strap .
In satin or patent leather, in black or in ultra-flashy fuchsia pink, this pair of heeled shoes is ripping off worldwide, so much so that even low-cost brands have already integrated dupes into their collections. Current.
These 2000-inspired pumps are so popular on social media these days that models from Versace and Valentino are sold out. We can then turn to other brands that offer them, such as Nodaleto and its “Bulla Babies” model, or turn to the sandals versions that will be perfect for sunny days and that we can wear, in the meantime, with pretty black tights!
