I always talk about flatforms to anyone that will listen. This style shoe isn’t for everyone, however those that wear them look very cool. They look like they don’t care what people think. I wear them because I like the minimal look that they have. I also like them because they are comfortable.
I love the Ecote Flatform by Urban Outfitters. I have them in black. I wore them the first time in Charleston during Charleston Fashion Week. While the wood is hard, I found that putting a gel sole in the shoe works wonders. I want to get this color too because I feel like it would go with some many different things. This is one of the cheapest flatforms on the market. You can’t beat $69, and the shoe has an overall rating of 4 and a half stars.

We had a rare instance of form meeting function on the spring runways. Dubbed “flatforms” these shoes give you all the height of a pair of heels without the aching feet.
Unfortunately, I haven’t spotted any of these sandals in high-street stores yet, but I’m predicting it’s only a matter of time. I mean, how often does a practical fashion trend come along?
I personally love the geisha look of these sandals. However, because of the heavy blockiness of the shoe, I’d pair it with something light or skin baring on top to balance out the look.
So tell me ladies, will you be wearing flatforms this spring? Or is it just too out there?
