Feel-good footwear, sparkles and high heels - that is the result of shoes designed in lockdown. Featured in the October/November issue of Vogue Scandinavia this season's statement shoes are not for the fainthearted, as sky-scraping platforms were the uniting choice for a number shoe designers. Unique, colourful but above all built for maximum wearability with a low arch, this season's platforms celebrates life and freedom of expression. From glittery party sock-boots to avant-garde collectables, these are the platform boots to invest in this winter.


Prada - knitted jacquard platforms

Leave it to Prada to bring the fun back to footwear. This season the Italian fashion house betted it all on a single shape, as futuristic flatforms were presented in a range of colours and styles. The boot, that we predict will be the 'it' shoe to invest in this fall is not for the fainthearted, but does not compromise on the comfort factor either.

Undoubtedly one of the most talked about shoes of the season, Versace’s many versions of the stacked block-heeled platform has grown into a seasonal must-have. This daring platform sits on an impressive 16cm heel and comes with the house's signature logo printed motif. A true shoe lover’s choice that is guaranteed not to go untouched this fall.
