Platform heels are your party season saviour shoe

Platform heels are your party season saviour shoe

Step into Christmas.

Take it from Beyonce – platform heels are the saviour shoe to see you through the festive season and weddings for years to come.

It may seem ridiculous that a shoe that looks like a single step would snap your ankle, with a towering base, gargantuan heel and flimsy strap, would be comfortable. But for some inexplicable, gravity-defying reason, the platform heel is comfier than an Ugg slipper. You could go jogging in them. They’ll never get stuck in a grate. You can stand all day at a wedding, dance all night at a bar, and never be in pain. Can’t get a taxi? You can just walk home. These are cosier than orthopaedic trainers. It makes no sense but is truly a gift from the fashion gods.

Wear them with anything – they look as good with jeans as with dresses – over Christmas, and at parties and weddings forevermore, and never be troubled by heel pain again. We’ve rounded up the best platform heels available now below. Tell a friend.
