Feathers and sequins may dominate our closets, but creepers (still) kind of scare us. That’s why, when two power bloggers posted flatforms within days of each other, we literally became paralyzed with fear and were only resuscitated hours later by Anna dello Russo’s “Fashion Shower.”
Both Caroline Blomst and The Sartorialist are evidently fans of the thick-soled shoe, and astoundingly, so are we. Once we finally regained consciousness, we suddenly saw just how versatile those clunkers are. (Though we might’ve hit our heads on the way down.)
Whether it’s a metallic sandal grounding a pair of unbuttoned short-alls or espadrille-style Prada oxfords sitting pretty on some well-lit Italian strada (that exact pair is 50 percent off now), we think you’ll come around to flatforms just like we did — minus the concussion.
