Designer v Highstreet: The Cross Over Platform

Cross Over PlatformsPlatforms are really popular right now and I especially love these ruched patent shoes from Net-a-porter by Burberry. Slick and glossy these are real eye catchers, and looked great when showcased at Burberry’s A/W 08 catwalk earlier this year. The cross over detailing falls just below the ankle, which in turn gives the impression of elongating the leg and totally avoids the awful ‘cankle’ syndrome ankle straps so often bring!

The cone shape heel and peep toe details really set the shoes off and combine really well the mix of hard and soft and gritty and feminine in one hit, which is so popular right now.

At £350 they are a little pricey so the highstreet version from ASOS makes a cheaper alternative. At just £30 they come in black or purple and these strappy satin stilettos feature a similar cross over detail as well as zip back fastening and concealed platform.
