    Okay, maybe I'm a little slow but are platform shoes coming back in? I keep seeing platforms in stores as well as on celebs. I also keep seeing platform flip flops everywhere (specifically Rocket Dog). What do you guys think??

    No no no no no, just say no to Rocket Dog platforms. Every girl my age (except for myself) wears those 2-inchers with everything during the summer. And let me tell you, cheap platform flip flops and tiny, wider-than-longer minis are not a good combination.

    Obviously they haven't read the millions of articles spawned by the one in Times about modesty...

    not a fan of platforms.
    most of them don't look appealing to me, and I find some dangerously tacky :sick:


    however, a little bit of platform done right can look amazing, also makes the shoes very comfy, for example, these CHOOs :heart:

    haha! I LOVED platforms in the 10th grade... I had a pair that was like 6 inches tall :ninja:

    I have a little platform on one pair of shoes... but I never wear them because of it. they make me feel.. slutty or something

    I have a few pair of flatform sandles (NOT flipflops :sick:) and one pair of boots, but I'm slowly fazing them out of my wardrobe with heels. They are from my younger days of fashion :ninja:

    Okay, I'm not a huge fan either. However, I keep seeing them featured in fashion mags., keep seeing Jessica Simpson sporting them, etc. I just have a feeling they are making a comeback. I agree, people continued to wear them long after the first time they went out. I think that is the danger...looking like you still think they are stylish from the early 90's.

    platforms are GREAT!
    i welcome their return :heart: .......
    ...so long as it's not in the form of hideous 1990's platform sneakers and such (a la spice girls, as above)

    vivienne westwood style platforms like those black pumps that were posted earlier are more than fine, though :woot:
    but perhaps in a more sensible height.

    also, those jimmy choos are perfection! :heart:

    :wub:

    they have that 1940s-50s pinup charm, and are just plain hot! :brows:

    My mom has those shoes Posh is wearing. Here are some of my favorite platforms from the last few years.
