Between working and well working, somehow I missed out on these Alexander McQueen Platform Sneakers that look like those classic Stan Smith Sneakers from Adidas except with a brilliant 2 inch platform that gives us petite gals a little bit of height. There hasn’t been too much chatter about them online and I am not sure if it is because they came out mid summer or because they sold out so fast, I am seeing online that they are all coming back in soon with pre orders available all over the interweb, so if you are like me and missed out the first time around, I suggest you pre order them or order them here and get them to your house in 2 business days and start wearing them everywhere ASAP including that walking trip this holiday season to Mexico, Paris, or Aspen.

One of my favorite platform shearling high top sneakers this season came from Giuseppe Zanotti. What gal doesn’t want to keep her feet warm in the winter and gain an extra 1 1/2 inches in height right? In the all black color these platform sneakers with the 2 sided zip will be your favorite shoes for the rest of the winter. It is still cold in most places and if you are like me, your feet are always cold anyhow. I love the look of them because they have an all black heel and you can basically wear these shoes with anything.
Another alternative if you are looking for something a little more affordable check out the Converse faux shearling lined high top sneakers in black. On sale for $39.99 from $79.99 that is a pretty great deal. Get them here now.
The Giuseppe Zanotti Ankle Strap Platform Sandals will transform any outfit form secretarial to 70’s modern Jennifer Lawrence from that movie Joy. These 5.5 inch platform mirrored rose gold sandals will give you the height you want to stand heads and shoulders above the rest for those New Year’s eve parties and to elongate your legs to make them a mile long. These great sexy ankle strap sandals will be everything you need for the rest of the holiday season and into spring. These are not your mom’s platforms from the 70’s, these are a modern take you will want to wear with wide leg pants and everything in between.
Sacai Platform Birkenstock Like Sandals – these are the ultimate birkenstocks platform sandals from Japan if you are looking for something ultra hip and modern. These Sacai Platform birkenstock like sandals are cool. Wear them with a paperbag waist pair of jeans and really look like you are back in the 90’s singing “Take on Me.” AND since they make you 1.5 inches taller and comfortable because of the cork footbed you can rock these all summer long. Definitely the coolest birks around besides those Givenchy ones with the flowers. Sacai double buckle platform sandals for $425.
Vic Italy Platform Wedge Boots for Fall Â -Â A substantial covered platform offers retro appeal to Vic Italy boots, styled in a mix of smooth and textured leather. Elastic gores offer comfortable pull-on style. Rubber sole. For those of you gals like me who love a little more height, but do not want to have your feet hurting at the end of the day in a pair of stilettos – think wedges and platforms. Here is a pair made in Italy by Vic Italy that harkens back to when Robert Clergerie was the big platform wedge French shoe designer everyone coveted. After all everything from the late 90’s is back now including those lace up Victorian boots that Prada made with their doctor bags from that time period.Â
Here is why I love these ankle boots – they have a 4.5 inch heel but have a 2 inch platform so you will not be stumbling around in these this fall and wishing that you were wearing flats. Instead you will be towering over the people you want to tower over or at least be as tall as those gals who are 5 feet 8 inches and taller and you can have comfortable happy feet as well. Best yet the Vic Italy ankle boots are stylish and modern and made in Italy. The price for these Vic Italy platform ankle booties are $358. Now that is really great for all these great benefits. These shoes will take you from rain and snow Fall to Spring. You will find yourself wearing them with leggings, jeans, leather skirts and everything in between.
Pierre Hardy Wedge Platform Shoes SALE – These shoes are great in so many ways and then there is just the matter of the contrasting white ankle strap that I am not so sure about. I love it and I don’t love it. Easy enough fix I suppose if you want to take this shoe to the shoe repair and ask them to dye the ankle strap black for you to match the rest of the shoe. I get it that it is colorblocked but I just don’t know that I will want to have it that way all of the time.Â
Hey the shoes are on sale for $179 from $450 so you can take it to the shoe guy if you want to. What I do love about this shoe is the fact that it has a platform wedge rubber heel for comfort and hours of wear for work or when you travel. It is a great edition to your shoe wardrobe if you don’t have something like this. It is like Robert Clergerie but with a twist.
You had me at “hello” is what I have to say about these Christian Louboutin nude platform pumps. Are they just fabulous or what? This is a 5 inch heel with a platform so you won’t feel the 5 inches on a comfortable cushioned leather sole. You will feel like you are wearing 3 inch heels.
These shoes will make your tanned legs look miles long this summer. If you need a pair of shoes for graduation or a summer wedding. Do this shoe. You will have these forever and they are an instant classic. You can wear them with pants too for work and into Fall.
Two other very hot shoes of the season are the
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN – COUSSIN BOOTIE BOOTS that were seen on Kim Kardashian recently when she returned from Spain and the CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN – STAR PRIVÃˆ STUDS SLING BACK SANDALS which are just too hot for words with all over studs. Click the photos below to check them out now. All the shoes have 5 inch platform heels so no matter what you pick, you will get lots of height.
I wanted the Burberry black wedge suede platform ankle boots seen on Mary Kate Olsen from the Burberry fashion runway show in London September 2009 for the Burberry 2010 Spring collection. They are all sold out, so I found another alternative.

I told you about these amazing Nicole Richie black platform Balenciaga boots a few months ago. They were sold out everywhere. Well I found one pair for you available now. Click here to see them, they are beautiful.
Nicole Richie was seen doing some after Christmas shopping on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles a few days ago with her black Balenciaga vintage platform boots. These are the same boots she rocked right after giving birth to Harlow. I love them and have searched all over for them. This year Balenciaga did not make any wedge platforms like that.
