History- Used first in Ancient Greece for raising the height of important characters in Greek theater and also used by prostitutes in Venice in the 16 century. Popular in the United States in the 30's 40's 50's and 60's but VERY popular in the 70's and 80's
If you are an 80's baby you grew up knowing what platforms were and connected them with disco and gogo boots. Fast forward to 2011  Platform shoes as we all know has took a turn and for the LOVE OF FASHION its never going back to what we all know. Fashion recycles itself and we as the fashion lovers of this time, barrows from the past, put our own style to it and  the WORLD grabs it and makes it a phenomenal......

NASTY GAL   has to be the most open and out there site when it comes to platform. They have it all with taste!!! The Main shoes are "Magic Leopard Platform" Retail for $118.00 via Nasty Gal they are Insanely high leopard print platforms featuring a curved cutout heel and contrasting leopard print sole. Fully lined interior, zip closure at inside ankle. Perfect paired with an over-sized tee and cutoffs. 

When I 1st took a look at them YOU all know what came to my mind...The Album 4 Promo pic from Beyonce 

and Dawn Richards Pics also.... 

Platform shoes are hear to stay. For one they are very comfortable, i'm not sure on the main pic but they are hotttttttt. But as for shoes that are cater to giving us some type of height in the front inorder to support the thin heel, I"M WITH IT...
