When thinking of the chunky shoe trend, (easily one of fashion’s most recent and most polarizing fads), you may quickly picture a pair with soles as thick and fluffy as pancakes or as spiky and fireproof as truck tires. In other words, platform shoes. These stompers cover a broad range of footwear types: If it has supersized soles and generous elevation, it can be considered a platform shoe. Below, we’ve curated a list of such steppers for you to browse. Call it a buffet of platform samplers, if you will.

Platform Sneakers  

This Prada sneaker puts a whole new spin on the quip about stepping on Legos. The playful notched sole serves just the right amount of chunkiness. It was inspired by tire tracks, while the rest of the shoe is cut from classic canvas.

Platform Mules 

When you think of Bottega Veneta mules, your mind might land on the chic square toe Stretch sandal. As it turns out, the brand offers a wildly different mule, too—the Flash, a gummy pair with a jagged sole. It comes in differently-colored soles, many of which are reminiscent of the Powerpuff girls.

Since Bottega Veneta items do not showcase logos of any kind, the Intrecciato weave is the telltale feature to look out for. The BV Bold mule is a maximally textured pair you’ll love to wear with monochromatic ensembles.

Platform Espadrilles 

Speaking of weaves, here’s an architecturally sound platform espadrille from Miu Miu, the perfect dash of boho to team with flared denim jeans, a white maxi dress, and anything else you’d wear to a garden wedding.

Platform Clog 

Another of-the-moment shoe is the solid clog. Here, it gets a refresh by way of an oddball cutout embellished with a cotton strap. This is a youthfully feminine statement piece that doesn’t try too hard.

Platform Boots

The innate kitsch is part of what makes mammoth platform shoes so endearing. This bubblegum pair by Area captures that spirit well. Cut from calf leather, the tall boot features elastic panels and a cute almond toe.

A behemoth boot might not be the first thing you’d associate with the British designer Molly Goddard, but then it is a bold accessory to pair with her dreamy tulle numbers. This pair is fresh off her Autumn-Winter 2021 runway, and features a sole made of out recycled materials.
