See-through shoes are all the rage; they are fun, eclectic and pair well with every color and look. For those who prefer more height in their heels, we found a selection of the coolest clear strappy platform shoes you can shop now. These styles vary in silhouette from a crisscrossing sandal to a cork slip-on wedge, all made with PVC straps. Pair this type of footwear with a casual look like mom jeans and a white T-shirt to add a pop of flair or match them to a fancier ensemble like a flowy midi dress to finish off an evening look.
