Unique Men's, Women's & Unisex Platform Shoes

The shoes can make or break an outfit and it’s safe to say that they’re the most important part of it. If you do not feel comfortable in your shoes (literally and figuratively), you can’t truly let your true colors shine because you’ll be thinking of going home and getting them off. But do not worry, we can help! Just check our suggestions on platform shoes that feel as good as they look!

Fashion & Shopping with MyUS: Platform Shoes For Men & Women

Platform footwear has been around for a long time – think Napoleon and way before him. It has been in and out of the fashion industry over the decades but has never gone out of style.

Why? Well, we can think of several reasons:

  1. They provide a sense of height and make your legs look longer.
  2. Platform shoes are very comfortable to wear. They will not make you feel like you are walking on a high surface because the platform is built into the shoe.
  3. You can combine them with pretty much anything, regardless of your gender and/or personal style.

In this article, we will list a few different types of platform shoes for men and women, so buckle up and get ready to choose and order your favorite pair!

Superga Unisex Low-Top Sneakers, $36+ 

Superga Unisex Low-Top Sneakers Beige Erasers

Simplicity is key, and we must list this gorgeous pair of unisex low-top sneakers.
These simple, everyday shoes have a firm, rubber sole, with a platform measuring approximately 3” (talk about a height boost!).
They’re available in 43 different colors, and their affordable price might make you want to buy several pairs – don’t say you weren’t warned!

“I love these!! I typically am between a 9 and 9.5 and opted for the 9 in these as most people indicated they ran slightly large. I would say these run at least a half size small if anything. These are so versatile and cute! They remind me of my favorite platform sneakers I wore in the 90s. I will definitely be ordering more of these!” – Candace

Melborne Platform Sandals, $38

Hot Pink with Daisy Flower Melborne Platform Sandals

Sandals are everything for the hot summer days! With Macy’s Melborne platform sandals, you can be stylish and not have your feet sweat and slip thanks to their slip-resistant sole.

These beautiful wide-strap sandals have a 3-3/4" wedge heel and a 1-1/2" platform, and they come in pure white and hot pink with daisy flowers. Their best feature is probably the memory foam, which, as the name suggests, will adapt to your feet for maximum comfort.

“I got the white ones. They are like a vinyl, patent leather feel. I got size 6.5 and they fit perfectly (my foot measures 9.6). They are very comfortable and easy to walk in. I can hardly wait for fall so I can wear them with my flare jeans for that 70's vibe!” – Marianne 

Vegan Jadon II Mono Platform Boots, $200

Black Vegan Jardon II Mono Platorm Dr Marten Boots

No list is complete without the timeless Doc Martens. Whenever we think of a platform boot or shoe, they are usually the first thing that comes to mind - and rightfully so! Their look hasn’t changed in decades, and they are still some of the most-wanted shoes on the market – and that speaks volumes!
However, Dr. Martens have far more options now, thus we recommend their vegan platform boots that are cruelty-free, but as gorgeous as ever! Who wears leather nowadays anyway?

“I decided to treat myself to my first ever pair of Dr. Martens and so happy I chose these, they are really easy to get on because of the zip and are really comfortable. Love the look of the vegan “leather” too. Highly recommend these boots.” – Jill C

The unique pair has a Neapolitan design, a wavy chunk that goes from black to white to tan, and will add quite a few inches to your height.
A must-have for the cool dudes out there!

“I bought these and they are very comfortable would recommend sizing down I took a risk sizing down and it was the best risk they are so bouncy and feel like walking on a cloud.” – Verified Purchaser
