SHOESday: Flatforms!

It's been a while, you know, since I bought new shoes. I decided to rectify that yesterday.

These are the result:
They are so extremely comfortable!

And perfect to elongate a short-ish person without having to wear high heels.
They are basically flat shoes with a platform - or, as I prefer to call them - flatforms! (yep, I totally think I'm SO CLEVER for that one!)

From the side they remind me of Japanese platform shoes. Will you have kimono with that?

I like them!

Bells said...

Holy crap. I need a pair of those. Where DID you get them?

And yes, you are amazingly clever.

Most excellent word and shoes. I can't wear the tiny high heel, but the flatform and the wedge are my friends too!!! I ahven't bought any shoes this year as far as my mind will remember. There have been no green shoes.

Oh, I LOVE them: the word AND the shoes!

Michele said...

Bells said...

Ohhh! too cute. Please tell us what they are. I agree with flatforms! Clever...

They look perfect for those of us who are "height challenged" and don't necessarily want pointy heels. I have very round toes and I think my toes would hang over the edges.

Flatforms! I love it.

They're great! I had a similar pair many years ago that I wore to death - but mine had a ripply sole.

So, I was in a shoe shop yesterday, and I was actually thinking to myself, "I wonder what Rose Red will do when her shoe collection runs out? Surely she'll have to start buying some more soon?"

And then I wander over here, and what do you know? Wow! Gorgeous New Shoes! Good for you - they're lovely!

Mmmm, they are gorgeous. So shiny and luscious, I love the buckle on them! I will forever love my high, skinny heels, but there is definitely a place in my heart for flatforms, and for anybody who makes a word like flatforms up. Come to think of it, have you met Jim, he of the "foot mitten" fame? The two of you could get together and re-write the whole English language into something so much more interesting and fresh...
