Platform describes footwear with raised, thick soles of at least one and a half inches in height. Platform soles are often made of cork, plastic, rubber or wood and are generally worn for fashion or to add height.
Pumps are heeled shoes that are typically tapered to a point or a narrow square toe. The upper of a pump covers the heel and sides of the foot, leaving the top of the foot exposed, which allows the wearer to slip on the shoe.

Very nice siren shoe. It is high so I couldn't possibly imagine wearing 8 hours a day. Ouch. But for a night out, yep. Really lovely and classic. Every woman who wants to wear heels should have a pair like this in their go-to section of their shoe stash.

I just love these shoes. They are cute and more important comfortable. Aerosoles are now my go to shoe brand since I wear a 12W.

I actually loved the color, material, heel height and design of the shoe. It was simply too, too wide for me. I gave the shoes to a friend who has worn them at least 3 X each week since I gave them to her. I made a friend very happy!

Hello, I bought the black patent Joan & David Flipppumps in size 12. I am a tall girl but I like high heels. I could not believe I could get these fantastic shoes in my size. Thanks to Joan & David for carrying them up to my size and thanks to Shoebuy for offering them for sale. These shoes are the best ones I've worn so far. The leather is very good quality and the style is awesome. I wore them for entire days since I got them and they are so comfortable I could wear them 7 days a week. They are exactly like the picture. They are very fashionable shoes with the round toe and 3/4 inch platform. I get tons of compliments when I have these on, the black patent Flipp pumps make my legs look amazing with sheer tan nylons on.
