Two points about the description: These are not platforms, and they are not beige. But that's OK, because they don't look like platforms in the picture, and I took a chance on the colour, which could be anything vaguely neutral. In fact the colour is described on the box as 'antique pink', a creamy beigey pale pink, which I absolutely love. They are a perfect fit for my wide size 6/39 feet, and the heels are an elegant but comfortable height. These are going to be my favourites this year, as they will go with lots of outfits.
