[Platforms]: [Not Just Shoes/Boots Anymore!]


When you said, “platforms!” (photo from Pintrest stock)In the 70’s and 80’s, you were talking about the coolest high heeled shoes/boots! If you wanted to be the who’s who of any group or the talk of your town! You had to have a pair of platforms! Available at the nearest store, in ankle, calf, and knee styles! Customized to suit or off the shelf. They came in many types, designs and colours. Platforms screamed,”unique individual!”

When you say, “platforms!” You are now talking about social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, etc.! If you want to be the who’s who of a group or the talk of your town! You have to be on one! Available on the internet, with all different aspects on each platform! Customized to suit or off the shelf general information. They come in many types, designs, and colours! Platforms scream “unique individual!”


No matter if you are wearing platforms today! Or you are on a platform, looking for a new pair of platforms! In my opinion, the similarities, are many! However, the one that screams at me is “unique individual!” Over all, people have not changed their “platforms that much.

Did you wear platforms? Please let me know!

Which platform are you on? Please let me know!

Facebook/Twitter: Don’t miss this tidbit! You’ll be smiling when your done!

  1. Hey there Michile,
    The fact that I am only five feet tall has introduced me to the world of platform shoes, and I can’t get enough of them. It’s interesting that the word platform made me think of social media, and now I am using it in all my google searches for shoes. It just goes to show you that the world around us is ever evolving and we often look to the past to come up with new and exciting things. I am on the platforms you mentioned but have found myself deep diving into the world of Linkedin for my professional needs and learning about Discord for my reality tv gossip. I hope you enjoy discovering the internet side of platforms 🙂

  2. Michile, I really enjoyed reading this and loved your comparison to platform shoes!
    I am 6 feet tall so I’ll stick to the social media platforms 😀
    My fave is IG.

  3. Michile! Your blog really caught my eye, it was fun and loved the word play. I used to wear platform shoes in grade 8 and I don’t know how I didn’t’ break an ankle! Lol I’m on Facebook and Instagram, they are in my comfort zone…unlike the platforms I used to wear!

    • The Duke of Freedom, love the handle! Thanks so much for the great feedback. I am glad l am not the only one who managed not to break an ankle! Have a good day!

  4. Michile, this blog is so much fun! I love the play on words and the quirky style of writing. It’s so simple, but it’s really catchy. To all the brave people in the comments who wore those crazy contraptions: I SALUTE YOU!
