Platform shoes are shoes with a thick, raised outsole where both the heel and the toes are raised, thus providing height to the wearer. Platform shoes may also have an elevated toe area with a separate heel.
Prom describes a type of footwear specially designed for prom night. Prom shoe styles vary widely in design and color, and their different styles can be chosen depending on the prom gown they are meant to complement. Still, the most common prom styles are generally ankle straps and slingback sandals with medium to high heels with shinny uppers or decorated with sparkling ornaments. Low heel thong sandals decorated with sparkling rhinestones are also a popular choice.
