What Do You Think Of Flatforms? (Not platforms).

Flat forms are a new style.  I guess people liked the look of platforms but wanted a flat foot.  At least they offer more support than those thin soled flat sandals.

 

I think they're over the line of being too heavy.

 

The first two are Fly London.

Clunky and non-feminine.  Not at all attractive.

I would be in traction in a week tops.  I think I would forget all that platform is under my foot and wouldn't lift my foot enough and would get the edge caught on something.

They aren't new at all. They were really popular in the '90s for example. I have these and I love mine. Although I'm not a fan of the ones that just look like flip flops.

They don't look like they'd be comfortable.  I couldn't pull them off.

I would not wear them. If I want elevation then give me a wedge or a heel.

Is that really what the call them?  I have seen them.....I'd fall of them and break a hip.

They've been around for many years. For those who can -- rock it!  However I cannot wear this style at all.  At 5'7" with a size 10 foot, these shoes make me look like the Bride of Frankenstein.

I first thought of wooden Geisha shoes, so I Googled.

I wasn't expecting them to be this high!

Off topic...h.o.w. do they walk in these things?!

Frankenstein shoes. It's all I can do to walk around in flats without tripping. These would not be in my closet.
