Platform Shoes Popular Trendy And Comfortable

Platform ShoesWomen love shoes and most of all believe there’s no such thing as too many shoes. True, they protect your feet from sharp objects and dirt, but shoes go beyond mere function. Shoes can be regarded as fashion accessories as well. What’s a great outfit without great shoes?




Trendy and Comfortable

If shoes have a down side, it’s lack of comfort. Women traditionally squeeze their feet into the most painful of shoes for the sake of looking good. Well! Believe it or not, there is a genre of shoes that not only make your legs look great, but complement almost any outfit and – ta-da – are comfortable. This paragon of shoe virtues is the platform shoe.

Platform ShoesPlatform shoes first showed up as a fashion statement in the mid-1970s. They became instant hits, at first because they were an absolutely cool look, previously unknown in fashionisto memory. The shoes were featured in every top fashion magazine and found everywhere, from Paris runways to the very smallest rural town shoe shop. A shoe shop that did not carry platform shoes was a shoe shop destined for failure.

Now, most avant garde shoe styles don’t last long – here today, out next season, or at least by next year. Platform shoes were the rage for several years before shoe designers tired of them, longing for a change in styling. How did the love of platforms last so long?

Platform ShoesThe reason is simple: platform shoes are unbelievably comfortable. You can literally walk in comfort for miles in such a shoe, with nary a peep of a complaint from your tootsies. The soles have a delicately but sturdily etched pattern with the traction of a snow tire. With your foot and stockings several inches above a rainy street, you sprint along through puddles with dry feet. No slipping or squishing.

The last of the platform shoe curves gently upward, from 2-3 inches above ground at the toe, to several inches at the heel. Therefore, the shoe, rather than your foot, does most of the work in creating the long-legged look so attractive to the opposite sex. Rubbery one-piece plastic was a typical heel material, so these shoes last for years without repair.

Platform ShoesThe uppers are made of every material and style found in conventional shoes. Styling runs the gamut, from beachwear sandals to a night at the theater. You can wear them with jeans or with a fabulous beaded designer dress. Unlike any other genre of shoes, platform shoes are universally adaptable to any fashion requirement.

Like any classic, platform shoes are, thankfully, currently enjoying a resurgence of popularity with today’s women. If you weren’t around in the 70s, you simply must try a pair. You’ll soon own dozens of pairs!




High-heeled Shoes A Girls Best Fashion Friend.

 High-heeled ShoesPerhaps it’s the added height that makes women feel elegant or maybe just because men seem to appreciate the look. Whatever the reason, women are shoe freaks. Shorter heels are for comfort, but tall heels are meant to be admired. So how do you choose a heel height?





A recent survey showed that among women who wore high heels, most chose a 5 inch heel. Why?

For one thing, there’s a practical aspect. A 5 inch heel is about 16% shorter than its 6 inch counterpart. This means the bottom of your foot is 1/6 closer to the ground! Walking in high heels is not easy. The 5 inch heel can make the difference between walking gracefully or taking a spill.

 High-heeled ShoesOther considerations are mostly vanity, but every woman likes to look her best. A long thin heel plays up a shapely leg, stretching the leg muscles, giving a lithe appearance.

The most popular heel today is the stilleto, recommended for those with good balance. A 5 inch heel will do the trick, for both admiring looks and walking purposes. At least with the young, the stiletto rules. It’s the Business heel of shoe fashion.

Going to an interview or power lunch? Pair some 5 inch heels with an elegant pantsuit. You get height and an elegant and confident demeanor. Platforms are a good choice as you’ll have no problem walking in them for extended periods of time.

High heels are all for effect. Every woman wants to look just a bit more shapely, taller, thinner or more voluptuous than she is already. Who can blame her?

High heels can be worn to advantage with just about any ensemble. The growing trend of high heels with jeans is one example. Great with pantsuits, short and long dresses or even with shorts. If you’re going to the beach, just bite the bullet and get out your sneakers.

If you haven’t the confidence or balance to manage the stiletto, give the spike a try. The last shape is not so extreme as the stiletto. A 5 inch heel is again recommended, if only for the safety factor. Spike heels echo the enchanting times of classic Old Hollywood. The curvy heel compliments the curvy female form in a voluptuous effect. Ha! No man can resist this imagery.

 High-heeled ShoesAt the other end of the high heel spectrum is the chunky heel. Now you might think this the one you wear hiking. On the contrary, men enjoy variety. The large chunky heel, by contrast, makes you look more petite. Its’ squareness serves to accentuate your curves. Men even think these chunky heels make women look “cute”.

If you have a thing for shoes, there are more than enough choices. From stilettos to chunks, there’s a fashion high heel that will be just right for every piece of clothing in your closet. If that shoe isn’t in your closet, you may have to go shopping.
