Hot for spring: The flatform shoe



flatform.jpegMeet the spring trend de jure: The platform flat, aka flatform.

Imagine a shoe with the comfort of flats and the sex appeal of heels. I'm nominating the inventor for a Nobel Prize. So long as they don't clomp like horse hooves, this could be the best footwear trend since ballet flats staged a come back.

Fashion mags like Glamour raved about the flatforms that were all over the spring runways. But the look doesn't appear to have filtered down to masses yet. I'm not seeing flatforms at working gal mainstays like DSW, Nordstrom and Payless. Since I can't spring for the $750 Michael Kors sandals, pictured at left, I will have to watch and wait.

Have you seen any flatforms come down from the designer stratosphere? And would you wear them?
