There’s something incredibly satisfying about slipping on a pair of sandals and going about your day. Perhaps it’s the quick and easy process of putting them on that gets us, but their distinctive look also grabs us. With the ’90s, Y2K, and Barbiecore fashion trends coming back into play, the platform heel has become an influential fashion accessory. Combine a platform heel with a sandal and you have the best fashion trend on the planet: the platform sandal. Their appeal lies in their nostalgic style, slide-on ability and the fact that they’re trendy enough to pair with high-waisted denim, frilly skirts and effortless tights.
Platform sandals have clearly defined themselves as the “brick shoe” of summer, but rest assured that they can also overlap with fall fashion. Whether it’s a chunky pair from Dr. Marten that buckles on the strap or TikTok favorite Gucci Jelly Slides that are in line with early fashion — there’s a platform sandal for every outfit, day or night, perfect for summer and fall. From chunky platform heels that add a few inches to your height to tiny heels that you can walk around with ease, check out our favorite platform sandals to shop now.
