Ever since Stella McCartney brought out the Eylse platform shoe I’ve been toying with the idea of stacked brogues. So when I got my hands on these metallic platform shoes from Dune London last month I couldn’t wait to find out what it’s like to wear the shoe with a split personality (are they flats or heels?).

The Verdict

After weeks of walking in them on Swiss cobbles, pushing a buggy up-hill, running to grab another 2 shot cappuccino before the next meeting I can certainly see the appeal of the platform shoe. And my legs also share that appreciation. Here’s why…

1. My pins look good in them. No one wants short, chunky legs and flats don’t always well, flat-ter. These raised platform shoes give a decent lift. Maybe not as good as a pair of heels but enough to make legs look just that bit longer and who in their right mind says no to longer leaner legs??

AND

2) I can walk for hours without whinging. Something he appreciates. Platform shoes are comfortable and even though comfort is never the main reason I buy any shoe it helps if I can actually stay upright in them for long periods of time.

I found platform shoes to be a great all-rounder, wearable with a range of outfits including dresses, jogger pants, wide leg trousers and skirts. What I really like about this pair from Dune London is the colour and the metallic finish. The sheen and two-tone navy and white wedge transform this shoe into something quite special. They’re the finishing touch to any look. Oh and they’re not heavy, I know they look it but they’re actually surprisingly light. I do think for £120 they are pricey but all in all a smart purchase and a welcome addition to my shoe collection.
