In recent months, Clarkson has been seen incorporating platform shoes into her wardrobe more frequently, choosing a bold pair of black leather platform boots to wear for her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in October. That same month, Clarkson performed at the Audacy’s We Can Survive concert also in chunky black leather boots as she delivered a show stopping performance.

The Aquazzura platform sandals are designed with a chunky platform toe box and crafted with leather. The upper is fabricated in printed navy, red and white textile, and features a knotted toe design in the front. An ankle strap with a buckle closure sits at the back of the shoe, and the shoes are finished with a thick 5.5-inch heel. Additionally, the sandals are made to give you a towering effect, making them a commanding statement piece for the season.

The Platform Sandal Trend

In the ever-changing world of fashion “ins” and “outs,” platform sandals are expected to be a trending shoe choice for many as we approach the warmer months. With bohemian styles like maxi dresses seeing a fresh revival, chunky platform sandals are predicted to be the designated footwear option this summer for both casual and formal events. This current trend takes archival inspiration from the 1970s and early 2000s when platform sandals were at the peaks of their powers, merging the vintage with contemporary design, construction and styling.
