Ok, I have to admit something…I am not totally sold on the flatform (half flat/half platform) shoe trend. I think it screams 'fashion victim.' Something I am totally against. However, I have a feeling I could change my mind. Eventually. Fact is, they were also on the Fall 2011 runway, so clearly this trend isn't going anywhere. If you are looking to add some height without suffering in a 3 inch heel pitch flatforms could be the perfect option for you. Let's see if I break down and buy a pair. I'll keep you posted.
