Platform sandals are the footwear trend of the summer
If you’ve been on Instagram anytime in the last few weeks, you’ve undoubtedly seen some of fashion’s elite and celebrity A-listers rocking chunky sandals. The big-soled shoes are inspired by 70s fashion, and like many fashion trends of yore, are making a huge comeback for the summer of 2019.
And though platform sandals may seem intimidatingly uncomfortable, they’re actually just the opposite. The chunkier heel means they have extra support, plus they offer more coverage than regular ol’ sandals, so your feet won’t feel too exposed.
Best yet, platform sandals can be worn with pretty much everything, like a maxi-dress to the office, a pair of denim cut-offs on the weekend, or even a swimsuit for those beach days. Feeling bold? Put a pair of socks underneath your sandals for the ultimate cool-girl vibe.
Here at Garmany some of our favorite footwear brands are in on the platform sandal trend. Try a pair from Rag & Bone or Rebecca Minkoff, or platform heels from Aquazzura for a special occasion.
