There was a time when platform shoes were the must-have fashion item for any self-respecting man, woman or (yes) child.

In the heyday of the 1970's these funky, chunky heels were everywhere, and although they were often uncomfortably high, unwieldy and in many cases downright ugly, men, women, children and rock stars continued to wear them because they were, after all, groovy.

On this episode of the Parenting Then and Now podcast, we walk down memory lane with a skip in our step, remembering how very cool we were sporting these kicks.
