Spring Trend Alert: 10 Triple-Platform Heels to Try
The sky’s the limit with these new shoes.
Vertigo, schmertigo. A fear of heights is worth conquering for the sake of road-testing this season’s hottest footwear trend: towering triple-platform heels which boast three layers: upper, midsole and outsole, all thickly stacked to give your style a major boost—literally. To help kick things off, so to speak, we’ve hand-picked 10 fab finds for this look favoured by stars like Kate Hudson, Jessica Simpson, Rachel Zoe and Anne Hathaway. And remember: Don’t be a high heel hero. Keep some bandages and a backup pair of comfy flats (ballet flats can easily fold up into a purse) on hand should your heel snap, your feet ache, or your trip-induced concrete sandwich prove to be more than you bargained for.
1. Pelle Moda Rad Platform Sandal.
Jump into spring with this foxy leather sandal. It’s great for everyday wear and the metallic midsole provides a luxury accent. We’d pair this pump with a printed sheath dress and wooden bangles to nail this season’s tribal trend ($96.77, endless.com).
2. AMI Clubwear brown snake hidden platform pump.
Pump it up in this snakeskin-effect round-toed heel. The chain detail gives the shoe a jolt of glamour without being overly flashy. Wild enough for the club, but neutral enough for the corner office too—if your boss is down with five-inch heels, that is ($25.99, amiclubwear.com).
3. Nine West Ultrafresh Platform Peep Toe.
This triple-decker peep-toe sling back features cream, gray and black shades in a slick patent finish—call it the Neapolitan of shoes. These babies were made for your favorite sassy little black dress ($153.85, asos.com).
