This leather and wood wedge by Jil Sander is a genius way to design a platform shoe that doesn’t look clunky at all! The layer of white platform is deceiving. It disappears, giving you extra height without the thickness and weight that comes with some platforms. No bulky height surrounding your foot here. From afar, it looks like an elegant slingback. The modern wood wedge adds a bit of understated texture to the classy black strap and toe. I can see these working at the office or out to dinner. Try with a cute spring skirt or colorful crop pant. The simple colors and lines make this pair versatile and easy to get plenty of wear. On Net-A-Porter for $525.
