The “Bad Romance” singer has been seen on multiple occasions recently participating in the tall platform boots trend. She wore the style in New York City this past October after a performance with The Rolling Stones for their Hackney Diamonds album release party. The actress was also seen that same month wearing a black 8-inch pair of Pleaser boots that featured side zippers and thin laces. She was also seen wearing an identical pair during a November 2021 outing in NYC. Platform boots have been a signature in her wardrobe dating back to her first album “The Fame.”

About the shoes

The star’s shoes, made with an 8-inch heel, were doused in an all-black color. Additionally, the shoes featured a lace-up style and rounded toe design in the front. The boots were constructed with a medium heel detail.

A number of other celebrities have been seen sporting similar styles of platform boots as the style has become a popular choice for both casual and high-profile occasions due to its edgy punk-rock aesthetic.

Platform Shoes Trend

Platform shoes first became popular when they hit the scene in the 1970s. Jumping ahead to 2023, platform shoes are now considered to be a rising trend again as they have been openly embraced by the likes of Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, Bella Hadid and more. Considered to be a more comfortable choice than stilettos due to their lightly padded midsole and elevated nature, brands like Versace and Pleaser have gone all-in on rolling out the model for spring 2024. Styles like Versace’s Aevitas Leather Platform Boots and the Adore 3000 have become popular shoes of choice.
