The Resurfacing Of Hidden Platform Shoes

…but not quite. I find the higher the platform, they don’t pull off the design; if the shoe has a large wedge and a fairly high hidden platform then the shoe tends to look ridiculous. Instead choose a shoe with a hidden platform that is smaller and more proportunate to the back wedge or heel. That creates a balance and avoids nasty gothic looking chunk style shoes.

The Resurfacing Of Hidden Platform Shoes

As previously discussed, we want to avoid looking like we’re from a gothic circus side show, so avoid large platforms. Topshop gives us two examples; one of what to do, and one of what to avoid. The “Melissa” wedge to the right is where we want to give our attention. It avoids looking comical and hoof-like, and still manages the wedge and open toe design.
