An item of footwear that has much more than the necessary thickness of the sole.

Usually worn only by females, but from time to time also by males, though oftern with not as high of platform soles on them.

Common thicknesses are from a half-inch to two inches, though some have been made in extremely large sizes (6 inches or more). I find it hard to imagine how tough it must be to walk on them.
