It seems like sky-high platform pumps have been everywhere lately. From red carpets to runways to Cannes to cobblestone streets, celebs like Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway, and Florence Pugh are all-in on the extremely elevated footwear trend popularized by brands like Valentino and Versace. The exaggerated six-inch heels have made the shoes a bit controversial, but that hasn’t stopped celebs from wearing them nonstop.
While the footwear of choice for the well-heeled denizens of Hollywood tends to be a bit beyond what mere mortals are willing to pay to test drive a trend, we have to admit: This one is hard to resist. Fortunately, a more affordable option is within reach. Yes, H&M just dropped a version of the posh platforms for under $50—in bright red no less—and with a slightly more manageable heel. Peep the pumps and more of our favorite new-in shoe styles from H&M below.
