Switching up your shoe game with footwear that isn't a stiletto is not only rehabilitating for your feet; it'll also give you a chance to broaden your horizons with height-adding shoes. In fact, platform shoes are equally as effective in making any girl under five feet look much taller. The best part? They're about ten times more comfortable! Check out our favorite types of flatforms below:

Creepers are the platform oxford's grunge-y cousin. They're comfy and street, making them the perfect pair to sport when attending concerts. The laces are reminiscent of your usual sneakers but the shoe gives you a bigger boost without looking too bulky. Wear them with knee socks or culottes to soften its innate rock 'n roll vibe, or have them finish off your edgy concert outfits!
