Platforms or stilettos, what heels should I buy?

The age-old question: platforms or stilettos?

Thankfully, there is no need to fret. Spendless Shoes is here to help you figure out whether stilettos or platforms are the right fit for you. Without further ado, here is what you should know.


Before we get ahead of ourselves, it is best to determine what the differences are between platforms and stilettos. Platforms and Stilettos are two different types of heels, usually distinguished by the thickness of their heels. Platforms have thicker heels and bottoms, while stilettos tend to have tall and skinny heels. They come in many shapes, styles, and colours at Spendless Shoes, but that is the essence of it.


Platforms are a favourite feature across a range of different styles these days, including classic evening heels and mules. If you live with the ever-present fear of rolling an ankle or had the grievous experience of tripping, stumbling, falling, or even breaking the heel off of your high set of stilettos, platforms are probably the way to go. Not everyone feels comfortable or confident wearing thin heels— it is no big deal. Platforms are just as beautiful and just as elegant. With a thicker heel to provide support and stability, these will give you that much-sought-after good heel experience.

These are a great alternative to stilettos on a night out or for a special occasion, as they are generally kinder on soft or sensitive feet. At Spendless Shoes, you can find our range of block heels and mules in the women's category under heels, and these come in a variety of colours such as black, gold, tan and pink! Pink (sometimes listed as "blush") is a standout colour in this season and adds that little something extra to your outfit. If you are looking for a shoe that you can wear all day long, while still keeping up with style, then platforms are for you.


Our stilettos can be found in our women's category under "heels" and then "high heels". We have a range of styles and colours which include black, silver, white, natural, gold, metallic, tan, pink and red. Our heels also include lace-ups, which are a hot trend right now. If you are looking for a shoe that wows, then you want to go with the colour of the moment— red. Bright, vivid red is a must for any wardrobe this season, so we have a range of red stilettos from which you can choose. If you are looking for a standout shoe, then you want to go with some of our stilettos!

How to choose

Honestly, find platforms or stilettos you can walk in and be comfortable wearing. Otherwise, it is all for naught. Thicker platforms will provide more support and be perfect for a little dancing here and there, especially if heels are not your usual forte. Stilettos are ideal for expert heel wearers and to add some drama and glam to your outfit.
