Cast your minds back to the Super Bowl, when Gaga slayed the US national anthem in a red foiled Gucci suit with American Flag platforms: one red, one blue. Remember? Cool. Yeah, I need those platforms. Not necessarily the custom star spangled banner versions made for Gaga but I need that goddamn platform. I’m not the biggest Gucci fan, I’m just not about that aesthetic – it’s too floral and 70s for me right now. But these Gucci platform pumps are everything.
They’re high. They’re just within the boundaries of killer hot shoes and luckily they aren’t crossing into the realm of “you could easily make money dancing in those in a dodgy area” otherwise known as the stripper shoe. The ratio of platform to actual heel, resulting in the less that stripper-y arch works in my favour – meaning they’re socially acceptable (not that that matters).
Btw no shade to strippers, you do you, I respect the hustle – just saying you wouldn’t wear your work shoes recreationally would you? Exactly.
The best thing about these glorious platforms is that they look perfect with a skirt or with jeans. Dare I say, they’re the hottest shoe on the game right now. They’re the MVP of this season of shoes. Killing it. How much will I get for one of my kidneys…?
Gucci platform pumps, £600 or £680 with studs down the T-Bar.
