Platform shoes (also known as Disco Boots) are shoes, boots, or sandals with thick soles at least four inches in height, often made of cork, plastic, rubber, or wood (wooden-soled platform shoes are technically also clogs). They have been worn in various cultures since ancient times for fashion or for added height.

Buffalo Boots is a brand which platform models were popular, especially in Europe (notably Germany and Scandinavia), from the mid 1990s to the early 2000s.
Elton John has a large collection of platform shoes, many of which he auctioned off in aid of charity.
