Platform Shoes

TopPlatform Shoes


Often referred to as “the Elevated Orthopedic Nightmare,” platform shoes were popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Originally only one or two inches high, they quickly grew in height and variety until hospital emergency rooms were routinely treating people for twisted or broken ankles caused by altered mobility.

After several merciful years in oblivion, the platform shoe has made a strong comeback among women in the 1990s. Rumors abound that Elton John and members of the rock group KISS will return to the concert tours and will break out their platforms.
