Seychelles and Sorel both create fisherman sandals and platform wedges that are on-trend and have a ‘70s and ‘90s integrity.  If you can manage the heel height and like the vibe, keep them on your radar because they’re comfortable. 

They come in an assortment of colours and are sized from a US5 to US11. Sometimes there is a US12. They are remarkably lightweight, thanks to modern fabric technology. The Sorels can work for a slightly wider foot, especially if you size up half a size. They probably won’t work well for a high instep, so consider yourself warned. The heels on the Sorels do not bend as you stride, so if that’s important, please pass on the style. I’m especially liking the white, yellow and blue accents on the Sorels. Punchy! And the white Seychelles fishermans look prettier on the feet than expected. They come in brown and blush on the Seychelles site.
