Trendspotting: Sculpted Recessed Platforms on Shoes

The platform shoe never really went out of style since the height of its popularity in the 70s (Get it? “Height” of popularity? Of platform shoes? Okay, nevermind). It was on the feet of many people well into the 80s and even into the early 90s – including mine.

So when platform shoes started coming out this year in fresh, new shapes, I was more than pleased with the new arrival picks. Just by chopping off a bit of the platform and placing them slightly misaligned with the rest of the shoe, who would’ve thought that the outcome would be some really stunning shoes?

Check out these shoes with sculpted recessed platforms:
