    I had a pair of those type pf platform shoes too, blueskies. I wore them to school, but they weren't that comfortable.

    I don't remember the 'comfort factor', Soulster.....I guess I was too busy being cool. What a joke that was! I'm just surprised I didn't break my neck. I had a pair of 'Earth Shoes' in college. No wonder I'm in orthopedic shoes these days! LOL

    They indeed were "Good Times". I remember them fondly - what I remember. I had a pair of Nunn Bush platforms I bought in Sausalito. The heels and soles were silver, the shoe tops were a deep Navy Blue with silver laces and a silver star on each side of the laces. Sharp! I tried to find a picture of them on line but no luck. Maybe traditional Nunn Bush doesn't want to admit they once made platforms. Expensive ones at that, I paid $49.99 for those shoes back in '72 or '73.

    And....the biggest offense of all....I had a brown, 'polyester' leisure suit with lapels about 2 feet wide!! I think I wore a pooka shell necklace to add to the coolness factor. Dear God...what was I thinking!! Yikes!

    Just because it seems funny to us now [[and it is) doesn't mean we weren't cool and styling back in the day. That's what the style was back then! Most fashion statements don't age well because fashion is a now thing. I remember my elephant leg bell bottoms flapping in the wind! LOL! Maybe it's a good thing photos were less prevelant in those days.
