Oh, the “flatform” . . . dislike the name almost as much as the word “jeggings” but love that they give the balls of my feet a break while still adding several inches of height. Here are some of my favorite reasonably leveled platforms for those long summer strolls ahead.

How perfect… very cute and comfortable looking, just what I want!
Wow, so gorgeous! You have such impeccable taste!
Just a Silhouette
Love the Michael Kors ones!
They look confortable but I’m not sure I like how they look once you put them on…
love the ones on the bottom left corner, so amazinnng want my own for summer so bad.
first time im on the blog, but i reallllly love it.
I like the look of the Jeffry Campbell ones the best, but I think that’s because you can’t even really call them flatforms (ugh, it really is a horrible word), they just look like regular platform wedges to me. I think the idea of the flatform is kind of strange, doesn’t flatter your legs the way a heel would, just makes you a little taller, like having lifts in your shoes, right? Which, I think, is not sexy or attractive at all. So if you’re going flat why not just wear flats? I don’t know… I just don’t get it. But maybe in a few months I’ll be eating my words and rocking flatforms with the best of them!
I’m on board with the flatform!
I still can’t wear these…
Love Vena Cava version, but absolutely wouldn’t mind any of them from Urban Outfitters. They are so reasonably priced..
I am so not on board with the flatform trend. I just don’t understand it. But to each their own, i guess.
ooh i wish i know who the last pair from Vogue are made by, they’re amazing! and i hate that name, and “jeggings” as well haha.. but i think they’re super cool.
I think I still prefer heels. I showed these to my gay bestie and he was SO offended! LOL

ohhh awesome shoes!! I love the ones in the “group pic” on the lower left:)!!!!!
Love the post on flatforms- I am dying for the new Michael Kors one’s… I did a post on flatforms and how happy I am they came onto the scene- http://styleisland1.wordpress.com/2011/02/23/these-shoes-were-made-for-walking-and-thats-just-what-theyll-do-shoe-trend-of-spring-11-the-flatform/
i can’t tell if i love or hate this look. some of the shoes are kind of amazing. other’s i’m not the biggest fan. but i do like the gold metallic pair.
I have to admit the ‘flatform’ isnt my favorite, HOWEVER the effrey Campbell Douma’s are oh-so-close to being wedges, plus the bright orange color makes these my fave of the bunch here!
in love with them. 🙂
they look gorgeous and they are much more comfortable than high heels, definitely.
I love these!
Yep coolest platform collage! LOVE LOVE your blog..just sayin!
I used to wear shoes like this 12 years ago. It’s all coming back 🙂
