Now that the weather is warming up and slick pavement hazards are diminished, many platform shoes are making their way from the shops to the streets. The style has danced in and out of fashion over the years, but may have finally found its place in designers’ permanent favor. Time will tell, but for now, I can’t see going wrong with a pair of platform sandals to add a little height to spring and summertime wardrobes. Below are a selection in neutral shades to get us started.
