Platform Shoes vs. Other High Heels: Why Platform Shoes Are the Most Comfortable Heels to Walk In

Reasons Why Platform Shoes are the Best


Platform shoes are a timeless shoe style for fashion lovers and retro enthusiasts! They offer height and glam but they also provide stability and comfort.

Compared to other types of heels, platform heels are definitely easier to walk in, especially for those who don’t normally wear high heels.




Platform Shoes are Designed for Comfort & Style: 

Platform shoes have added support to help with balance. The platform under the ball of the foot helps distribute weight more evenly. This reduces the pressure on the toes and the front of the foot, making them a breeze to walk in, even in heels that are relatively high.






In addition to the added support, platform heels normally have a wider base than other types of high heels. This feature can help provide more stability and prevent wobbling like other heels can cause. This is why platform heels can be a great option for those who want the look of high heels without sacrificing comfort or stability.

Which Platform Heels Are the Most Comfortable?



I should tell you that not all platform shoes are created equal. The height and thickness of the platform, as well as the angle and shape of the heel, can all impact how easy or difficult a particular pair of platform heels is to walk in.
