Nine out of ten men will agree that a chunky platform sandal is not their favorite fashion statement. In fact we would venture to say that, as a rule, fashion items that elicit the description "chunky" will not fare well with most people. Does that stop women from from spending up to seven hundred dollars on them? Nope. And why is that? We can't say for sure but perhaps it has something to do with the six-inch versions that preceded them. This spring, it looks like comfort is key.
