As the summer collections released, and designers revealed their bets on the new trends for spring/summer 2021, there was a familiar silhouette in the mix: the platform flip-flop. We had collectively exiled the style after it reached peak popularity in the early 2000s. Remember? The shoe was often paired with low-rise jeans, a tank-top and rimless sunglasses. Think: Paris Hilton, Gwen Stefani, and maybe even Prince.

But long before our modern American memory, the platform sandal has enjoyed a more elegant pedigree in Japan. Similar to a flip-flop, the platform geta sandal was traditionally worn by high-ranking courtesans and is still a popular choice.

This return of the platform sandal feels closer to its Japanese cousin, especially when paired with a chic high-waisted, wide-leg pants and a summer-friendly knit bra (another ‘aughts throwback that has received a modern makeover). So if you love them and can’t wait to try out these new versions, or if you need some persuading, see our favorite platform flip-flop styles below.
