Platform shoes were popular in the 1970s and have had several resurgences since then.

How do I walk in platform shoes?
Just the same way you would when you walk in your regular shoes! We recommend wearing them around the house to get used to the extra height, just walk heel to toe. Just be careful when walking upstairs, you'll need to compensate for the bigger sole. If you want to be tall but are a bit wary, we recommend trying out a pair of flatforms like theDamned-318 Knee High Bootsor theAshes-55 Ankle Boots.
