SS06 Shoe Trend: Platform Pumps

I know it's already August and usually by now, any fashionable person would already be talking non-stop about the FW trends, but I want to have a bit more of summer fun. Besides, platform pumps are great for the coming FW season too.

The pumps below are from both SS and early Fall collections:

The platform pumps that started this trend -the Christian Louboutin pumps.

Louboutin-lookalikes by Aldos. These are also available in a wide range of colours, but I would suggest you stick to the basic colours to avoid looking tacky.

However, if the bright-coloured shoes are like these Top Shop ones, then the vibe they give off is definately more vintage and funky, rather than tacky.

This pair by Marc by Marc Jacobs was definately a favourite of magazines. I love them -they're so versatile and easy to match with clothes.

Marc by Marc Jacobs pump-style ballet shoes -Cute in a girly way. This pair is also very versatile and definately wearable for the coming FW season too.

Nina Melia heels -Very sparkly and eye-catching. These would be great for partying. I saw them at Macy's and loved the black ones, but they were a bit high for me!

These Miu Miu pumps are so classic-looking. They would look great with A-line dresses and dark jeans.

With patent leather and red being 'in' this season, this pair of Top Shop Mary Jane is a good choice to liven up dark outfits.

Top Shop Suede Platforms -Love them! These would look so adorable with so many of next season's outfits!

I love love love the Miu Miu pumps, and I've already bought the yellow top shop shoes in a kinda bronzy colour that go with any pair of dark jeans. Also, i love the Marc by Marc Jacobs ballet shoes.

Oh, why do I want them all? It's so unfair! The yellow Topshop ones are so darn cute, though. And the white Marc Jacobs - those could go with anything. Time to check my lotto numbers!!-

i dont like platforms cos they make vertically challenged people (eg. moi) look more ridiculous, like they are trying to look tall except they dont lol. but i adore the non-platform nina melia heels you post. those are GORGEOUS *squirm*

While all the shoes you posted are beautiful I have to point out that most of them were not platforms.

If you notice, she mentions the ones that are actual platforms as platforms. Whereas others are referred to as pumps. Yes, the post starts by talking about platforms but goes on to be one about pumps. There's no need for attacking.
