We've seen platform heels become a major trend over the past year—check out these shoes worn by Selena Gomez —but none have taken the internet by storm quite like Versace's. At an intimidating six inches, the towering height of the heels is made more wearable by a 3-inch platform, making the actual incline a much more manageable three inches. The pair also features a crystal-adorned strap with a Medusa head charm, a square toe, and most recognizably a double platform.
The most popular colorway of these heels is undoubtedly the hot pink shade worn by Beyonce, Bebe, and Addison Rae, but they come in a variety of colors — Ariana Grande opted for a near-neon yellow hue. Other colors include lilac, baby pink, light blue, nude pink, red, and black.
The original mega-platforms from Versace are made in Italy with a 6-inch heel and 2.5-inch platform. A Medusa-head charm and crystals embellish the ankle strap of these towering pumps.
If you don't have $1,575 to spend on Bey and Ari's exact shoes: we're right there with you. TikTok was able to hunt down a dupe from Steve Madden with the same double platform and satiny fabric at a much more reasonable price. Since going viral, even more, affordable alternatives have cropped up from the likes of Lulu's, Amazon, ASOS, and more, each with a unique twist on the original Versaces. Some heels have dropped the crystal ankle strap for a more streamlined look, while others have added even more sparkles or featured an open-toed design. Whatever your preference is, you're sure to find a great dupe for the sky-high Versaces without the sky-high price tag.
