I actually think they are cute, but they are one style of heels that I’ve never been comfortable walking.  Easy to turn your ankel and have a dramatic fall (from experience!)

@blueteacup:  I don’t like it very much either. The larger the platform, the worse. Now, a very tiny platiform is one thing, because it makes a shoe more comfortable since the L shape is less exaggerated, but the huge ones look pointless to me & very bulky.

The platform on my shoe was .5in & made the shoe a lot more comfortable than some of my other heels.

@cbgg:  I don’t particularly enjoy them but they are much easier for me to walk in than full-on heels. But I almost never wear anything over 3 inches anyway & I live in a very rainy foggy climate so the more tread on the ground the better!

I don’t like the very exaggerated platforms, but I for one hope the trend never ends. I find it a lot easier to get height without discomfort if there’s an all over lift.

I love the 1″ platform that’s super trendy right now… But it needs to have a 6″ heel at LEAST to balance it!

My heels were 4.25″ with no platform, and they took MONTHS to find!

@blueteacup:  ROTFL! Me! I love heels, but platforms always make me think of this…

So tired of platforms. We aren’t all Kardashians trotting around in 6″ heels. So many heels are platforms that look less professional for me to wear at work. I’ve either got to pick something dowdy and lame, or look slightly stripperish (and come in around 6’4″)

I am not a heel wearer at all.  I thought oh poo poo when I was looking for shoes.  Couldn’t be higher then 3 inches (didn’t want to be taller then DH), did not want platform and most of all, had to be comfy.  Could not find any that were comfy.  I put all the weight on the ball of my foot so heels kill me.  I LOVED my shoes.  Ended up in platforms and I kept them on almost all night.  SO comfy, loved the platform (since it helped aleviate the foot pain) and I cannot wait to wear them again !

@blueteacup:  actually a big trend this fall is hardly-any platform heels. 🙂 Should be easier to find super cute heels/pumps sans-platform

I like the look of them but not the height or the feel.

I don’t find it hard to find single sole pumps at all, they are super in right now. I reccomend zappos, they have free shipping and free returns, so you’re not out any $ if you don’t like something.
