One of my new favorite fashion vocabulary words is “flatform.” A combination of the words flat + platform, flatforms are shoes, and most commonly sandals, that offer additional height on a flat platform. Popularized in the 90’s, this style is back with a vengeance this season offering additional inches and comfort galore. So today I thought I would share with you how I came to love the flatform and my plans for the style going forward.
This fall, my fashion fortune brought me these incredible ruby red, vintage Prada flatform sandals by way of Cheeky Vintage. I was hesitant at first, thinking that the chunky sole would be unflattering to my legs and might be hard to walk in, but was pleasantly surprised and quickly hooked on this style because of its comfort and extra height giving quality. I’ve had so much fun wearing these this fall/winter season, that I’m now in the market for a spring/summer pair. I’ve worn these flat little wonders with skirts, dresses, track pants & jeans and they never seemed to disappoint.
