Do you have a catalog I can order from?
No, this page is only about the history of platform shoes. If you are interested in purchasing platforms, try clicking on the link below some of the pictures. The link will take you to the site where the shoe is for sale.
You can buy some of the shoes shown, but not from me. If you want to buy a pair, look to see if there is a link below the shoe. If there is, then click on it, and it will take you to the site where you can purchase them.
Unfortunately, no, I don't. I can recommend that you check out Buffalo Boots or John Fluevog, but for men, options are limited if you don't live in a large city and are looking to mail order platform shoes.
Ok, I am working on a links page to bring you to sites where you can buy platforms. As for now, try looking in the 90s section. Click below some of the pictures and you will be taken to sites that sell platform shoes.
Absolutely. A handful of people have emailed me and told me that they used information on my site to help write a research paper. That's fine with me, just as long in your works cited page, I get some credit.
No, none of the shoes shown at my site are mine. I haven't had the time to take pictures of them yet. Soon, though, very soon.
No, I do not know anything about the practical matters of designing and making shoes. I'll see if I can find any resources for anyone who is interested, but as of now, I don't know much at all.
I would love to see them! Maybe even add them to my page. If you have the pictures scanned and on your harddrive, go ahead and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd like to see any pictures of platform shoes: a picture of your own pair; a picture of a friend's; or a spy snapshot of someone wearing cool platforms on the street. Black and white, color, paintings, design sketches, anything--send them to me. I want to see them if you want to show me. If the pictures you have are not on your harddrive but you are determined to let me see them, either go to some place like kinkos and scan them or email me and we'll see if we can make some kind of arrangement.
