Trend Alert: Platform Sandals

Last summer we flagged platform sandals as a rising trend in our SS21 trend forecasting blog and not only were we right about how big they’d be last season but here we are once again now dedicating an entire blog to their popularity. 


Often referred to as ‘flatforms’ - a blend of flats and platforms - platform sandals, or flatforms, sit on an elevated and usually flat sole. They’re great because they offer the bonus height of heels with the comfort of flats. Whether you prefer sandals or slidesplatform styles are flooding the shelves at Shouz for Spring/Summer 22


From edgy to coastal-inspired, our team of shoe-lovers has rounded up their favourite platform sandals and slides of the season for you to shop ahead of the upcoming warmer months. 


Mariana Khaki 

We love Mariana! How could you not? This chunky, black-soled platform slide features equally chunky khaki straps and also comes in black and tan. Reminiscent of the 90s and early 2000s style, it’s the perfect blend of timeless and modern.

Wamy Black Patent

City girls rejoice with this selection. You cannot dethrone black - black will always be the new black. And if you’re a proponent of the edgy look it lends, then you’re going to love these Wamy platform slides

Vitan Tan Multi

Edgy coastal is the best way to describe these Vitan Tan Multi platform slides. The soft tones and textured soles soften the effect of the hardware detailing and black strap to offer up a shoe that feels effortlessly chic.

Liora Scotch

The Liora sandal is back this season in tan! It features the same playfully exaggerated details as its white counterpart for a look that doesn’t take it itself too seriously. 

Vabecca Black/ Oyster

The team at Shouz has dubbed Vabecca the festival shoe. The earthy feel, whipstitching, nuanced platform sole and wide strap encasing the foot give this sandal a relaxed, free-spirited feel.  

Andrews Camel

These Andrews Camel platform sandals really said 90s galore and ran with it. They bring the best of the decade with their chunky silhouette while grounding things with modern elements such as the buckle and the textured finish on the outsole.

Raelyn Nude & Off White    

Raelyn is sophisticated and undeniably modern. Featuring a clean silhouette, woven leather detailing on the straps and chunky proportions, these casual and comfortable sandal feels very on-trend.
