Since 1998 here at Platypus Shoes we have made it our business to deck out every single person who walks through our doors with the freshest footwear from all the biggest brands. But we reckon life goes beyond shoes. We believe it’s what you do in them that truly counts. So stay out late. Wake up early. Walk there, run back. Stand tall and be a champion in a crowd of Naysayers. We’re for the ones that dance harder, sing louder and don’t care what anyone else thinks. This is your story. Play Life Loud.
