Ah, the dizzy heights of disco heels. Here at schuh, we LOVE a platform. It feels like you’re wearing skyscraper heels but carries fewer risks than a spindly stiletto. You can strut a bit more confidently and dance at least 4 – 5 hours longer before giving in and taking them off. I could go on listing the benefits of the genius that is the platform, but I’m pretty sure you know the score.

Well, luckily for the heel lovers out there, platforms and chunky heels are here to stay. The 70s influence dominates, with metallic finishes and zany prints, but there’s a touch of the 80s in there too, with full on glitter, chains and geometric shaped heels vying for attention.

The schuh Whimsical platform sandal is the perfect party shoe. It looks the part with tights, bare feet or even glittery ankle socks, and the ladylike silhouette works with pretty much anything. We like keeping it relaxed with these denim skinnies. Wide cross over straps are key for AW, and the buckle ankle strap adds a touch of cuteness.

Hot off the runway at New York Fashion Week, Privileged shoes are back with a bang. As you’d expect, the new styles are bolder, higher and sparklier than you could ever imagine.

If you like being comfy all night in your heels, maybe give these a bodyswerve. But if you like to be noticed wearing the loudest, most statement making shoes on the block, you may just find your dream pair. Fashion is fun again, and Twee and Barty are particular favourites, each eccentrically fierce in their own way.
