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.

This is my second pair of these shoes. I love them so much that I had to buy a spare. Although they are high, they are super comfortable and you feel secure in them (that is, if you're used to 5" plus shoes). I got the all cork ones and they really look great with maxi dresses or skinny jeans. The cork is really cool and looks almost nude. Love them!

When I received these shoes, my first impression was that the quality was not great. They felt cheap, and one shoe had four buckle holes while the other had five. Of course I needed the fifth hole to have a snug fit so once I decided to keep the shoes, I simply made the last hole myself. It was well worth it! I had ordered one half size larger than I normally wear due to the online recommendation, and these shoes ended up being so comfortable, I wore them for seven hours with no discomfort! All the other ladies had to remove their high heels, but I didn't! I look forward to wearing them again.

This shoe is beautiful, but it was not what I was expecting in heel height. The description says 4 1/2" inch heel, but I measured and it's a full 5 1/2". It does have a 1 1/2" platform. I wish I could keep my pair because I think they are gorgeous, but they're too tall for me. I'm returning them.
Michael Antonio Guava Fantastic! May run a 1/2 size too big.

Absolutely adore these shoes! However I wish I had tried a half size smaller as I have a bit of room by the toes. They look great on! This picture doesn't do them justice. I got the black with red, and the red is so vivid! Love them!

I like the look of the shoe and the materials are a very high quality. The padding inside the shoe is very comfortable and also well made. The reason I gave the shoe a three is for sizing. The shoe runs a little wide. I usually wear a nine and purchased the nine. It flops off my foot at times. So I bought the 8.5 and it is a little too small. I will stick with the nine and send the 8.5 back.
