Ask Natty: I Love Super High Heels, But Can't Walk In Them. Help!

by Natalie Decleve · March 14, 2011

Dear Natty, I feel like every season, the shoes keep getting taller and taller. I love the way a high heel looks, and I would love the extra boost - but I can’t possibly walk in them. Especially being a New Yorker and running around the city all day! Help! -Fear of Heights.

Dear FOH –

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your balancing skills) you are right about shoe trends and their seemingly endless vertical growth. While platforms and chunky heels have definitely helped to give us girls some stability, there’s no denying that prancing around in a pair of 6 inchers is always a bit tricky.

But never fear, my dear, the FLATFORM is here!

As chunky and high as the heel may be, the rest of the flatform is equally raised, keeping your tootsies at a comfy equilibrium while giving you the boost that you so crave.

Here are a few options that will give your wardrobe an instant UPgrade!
