This platform bootie is an old fall style but I find myself always coming back to it. It’s in a simple and sleek style that would make it easy to pair with a wide variety of fall/winter outfits. This lighter taupe version with the blond wood-ish colored heel would work for the spring/summer seasons too:

That leather-covered heel is a dizzying 5″ high but because it’s in block column form, it doesn’t look as threatening as if it was in stiletto form. Of course, there’s also that 1 1/2″ thick platform in front to help balance things out. This bootie is very simply styled but the little things, like that subtly pointed center-stitched toe and that lovely solid metal zipper pull, keep it from falling into the “plain and boring” category.
Now, what color to choose — the taupe one above or the black one below?
