Platforms aren’t just for glamour girls anymore. Once upon a time you had to be daring and embrace the outrageous to hit the streets in platforms. Talk about hard to walk in too. Most of them are ankle breakers. I used to think that platforms were destined to belong to cat-walk beauties and luscious bomb-shells who could stride around all day looking chic and elegant in these weapons of mass destruction.
Well not any more ladies! Today, platforms come in a variety of choices suited for the more conservative woman. Take this Espadrille by Eric Michael for example. A 3/4″ platform allows for a more moderate version of an old favorite. Style and comfort prevail in this versatile summer shoe.
