Flat on the Flatform

Okay, so the weather is getting chillier by the second and soon I’ll be enjoying the lovely coats I have in my wardrobe and running around in suede platform boots (if the weather doesn’t all of a sudden decide to get all Cape Town on us and rain the entire winter).

Anyways, so the other day I posted the new Solestruck lookbook and for some or other reason I said something ridiculous like “I am actually quite in love with the idea of the flatform.” Oh my Gaawd what was I thinking and why didn’t anyone comment and tell me that I am completely nuts!?

Apparently according to The Shoe Experts blog women are asking for a change and want the height with the comfort. Who are these women? Where do they come from? Do they have no respect for Roger Vivier? Are flat forms not just the same as kitten heels via their lack of commitment to one thing – high or flat?

However I will say that if next spring / summer you feel like trying out the flatforms or flat-platform, then my suggestion is that you choose a pair that has straps or leather panel detailing that create the illusion of an arched heel, like the black leather and wooden flatform from Phillip Lim and the black, white and taupe flat platform from Fendi.
