Flatform Sandals

Is the Flatform Just Too Much Platform?

OnSugar blogger styleology is on the fence with the flatform trend. Check out what she has to say about her dilemma below, and help her make a decision!

The S/S 2011 fashion season featured many trends. Among them is a trend that I have struggled with is the flatform shoe trend. Is it a flat or is it a platform. I have no doubts that these shoes may in fact be much more comfortable and provide you the height that you are probably looking for, but I've always been afraid that it could also make you look like you modified a shoe from Herman Munster's closet. I searched high and low to see if anyone would be brave enough to make this shoe style appealing to me, (I tend to think I have decent taste). I finally found two that I found extremely cute and would be perfect for Sunday brunch with the girls, paired with a mini skirt and a canvas carryall. What are your thoughts? Would you wear this trend?

I think they're cute, but they look like they'd be difficult to walk in.

I really hate "flatforms". They are pretty much elevated granny shoes.

I agree with stylemefab about the granny part. I loooooove a good platform but this is just too flat. I need some more height on the heel.

they kinda remind me of those granny shoes, made more for comfort than style. I dont know if i could get myself to wear them...maybe if they made them more colorful??...i dont know....
