The Best Platform Sneakers From Nike
1.Nike Air Force 1 PLT.AF.ORM
For a spin on the Nike classic, try the Nike Air Force 1 PLT.AF.ORM. The leather upper easily breaks in for a cozy fit, and the soft foam creates a pillowy feel underfoot.
The Air cushioning in the heel, which was originally designed for basketball performance, makes for all-day comfort and support. This shoe is available in multiple colorways, with two white options if you’re going for a timeless look.

2.Nike Air Force 1 Shadow
Another fresh take on the OG Air Force 1, the Nike Air Force 1 Shadow features a layered look: two eyestays, two mudguards, two back tabs and two Swoosh designs. Featuring the same iconic shape as the original Air Force 1, a slightly exaggerated midsole makes for an elevated twist. Shop lots of different colorways to express your style.
3.Nike Air Force 1 Pixel
To round out the Air Force 1 platform styles, the Nike Air Force 1 Pixel was designed by and for women. The midsole height of this shoe is ever-so-slightly taller than that of the Air Force 1 Shadow, and the crisp leather upper features clean lines and subtle texturing. The outsole and midsole feature large, pixelated details, and the cutout Swoosh design adds a unique touch.
4.Nike Blazer Low Platform
Introduced in 1972 as a basketball shoe, the Blazer has since transformed into a streetwear staple — and the low-top platform version adds a bit of height while maintaining the sleek look of the original. You’ll find thoughtful, comfy details throughout the platform sneaker, including a plush foam tongue, padded collar and solid rubber sole that’s grippy and durable.
5.Nike Dunk High Up
This platform sneaker gives the Dunk, a 1980s basketball icon, a lift. With a high-top design, sporty vibe and elevated midsole, the shoe is made with premium leather and features a padded high-top collar for an old-school look and added comfort. Rock the all-white high-tops or mix things up with a bold colorway.
6.Nike Court Vision Alta
For a basic, all-white platform sneaker, try the Nike Court Vision Alta. While this shoe comes in other colorways, the all-white leather sneaker is timeless. The lifted foam midsole and sculpted heel provide comfort for walking and everyday wear.
7.Nike Icon Classic Women's Sandals
While these aren’t sneakers, the Nike Icon Classic Women’s Sandals offer a chunky platform look in sandal form. The outsole pattern is reminiscent of the Air Force 1, while the multiple hook-and-loop closures add a strappy look.
