Platform shoes are shoes with a thick sole, usually made of rubber or cork, that provides additional height to the wearer. They are designed to elevate the foot while still providing stability and comfort. Platform shoes come in a variety of styles, including sandals, sneakers, pumps, and more, and can be dressed up or down. They offer an alternative to high-heeled shoes, providing height without sacrificing comfort. Platform shoes are available in a range of sizes and materials.
