Craving a comfy kick with serious elevation? Sky high stilettos and platforms get some competition from the flatform, a shoe with elongating lift, that doesn’t put as much strain on your feet and legs. Building steam since last Spring, flatforms have hit critical mass this season with designers embracing these wearable styles. There’s no trend these shoes don’t tackle from futurism, to ethnic inspired to nu-rave, so there’s no shortage of ways to work them into your spring wardrobe.
Flatforms are a best bet for an on-trend, and always needed, spring sandal. Think of them as your espadrilles edgier sister! Key sandal styles include gladiator, wood soled, and printed. These looks keep the care-free feel of your staple sandals, but imbue a bit of whimsy with the unexpected height. Paired with a girly day dress, or a tattered pair of cut offs you get a look thats both laid back and fashion forward.
A good day-to-night pick for the flatform is the flirty ankle strap style, like these in patent leather. A bit more polished than the sandal, these options are also work and cocktail appropriate with a chic A-line skirt or a slouchy trouser. you’ll manage to stand tall at the office, while making it look effortless.
Step outside the footwear comfort zone, and test drive these must-have updates on your spring favorites.
