The history of platform boots can be traced back to the 1400s in Italy, where they were a popular form of footwear. More recently, platforms were popular in the 1970s, as both men and women enjoyed wearing the style. Today, platforms are associated with grunge, hipster, or Goth culture, although they can be worn by anyone and not look out of place. These shoes have a chunky sole and, therefore, can add a few inches of height to anyone who wears them. Looking around Tumblr we see some pastel Goth platform boots that are sure to catch people’s eyes with how they look and the style that they help create.
