It's "The Higher the Platform, the Closer to God" at Balmain's Heavenly Runway

Get ya ankles ready for platform season.

For Spring/Summer 2023, Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing combines the sculptural dresses synonymous with the house with an airy offering of celestial drapery.

Adding to — and possibly even elevating — the collection are a slew of platform shoes from gladiator sandals to post-apocalyptic sneaker styles. Rock-shaped soles bring a warrior-like energy to braided leather sandals while a cast of angels grace flatform booties.

We’ve rounded up the best footwear moments from Balmain in the gallery above. Stay tuned for additional fashion week coverage.

In other news, Cecile Bahnsen debuts an ASICS collaboration at Paris Fashion Week and two additional AMBUSH x Nike Air Force 1 colorways leak.
