In the 1970’s there were platform boots, oxfords, sandals and many other types of shoes. Platform shoes compared with belllbottoms of wide legged pants and big hair. This trend could be seen on movies, television and everyday fashions. The infamous platform shoes have returned with Gucci in their SS17 line. Most of the line has the extreme platform.

This neat ballet pair have a removable platform. This is essentially two pair of shoes. You can wear them flat when you’d like to then add the platform back when you’d like to spice things up.
While other parts of the SS17 line have a more subtle heel. If the platform is a bit too high for you or you’d like a more subtle everyday look these may be ideal for you. They’d also save you almost $1,000 compared to the other pairs.
