Platform shoes were last popular when worn by the girls on the popular Brit band, The Spice Girls. Interestingly enough, we saw a lot of platforms on the feet of the top models runway shows last fall. So they are back in style. Ordinarily, you’d think platforms would be off-limits to moms-to-be because that type of shoe elevates the wearer’s height. Pregnant women are often recommended to stay away from high heels because of the fall risk they pose.
An accidental fall could be bad news for mom and baby if she lands wrong from a slip. However, surprisingly, platform shoes give you more security because there is a lot of support on the balls of the feet. Balancing on skinny heels is harder.
Going into the spring season, there are many different options from sandals, to peep-toe, to booties, to pumps. To give you some ideas on different styles out there, check out these offerings curated with our friends from Shopstyle:
