@Ms. Martian:  +1 …I also don’t think they are stripper shoes, being 5’1 and loving heels I am one who wear the 4 and 5 inch heels with platforms which are very very comfortable. But these are just ugly. Wouldn’t be caught dead in em .

Meh. Don’t really look like stripper heels to me. I actually own a couple pairs of heels that I recently bought that had platforms, and I realized that they are soooo much more comfortable than heels without platforms! These platform wedges by Luichiny are hands down, without a doubt, the most COMFORTABLE heels on the planet.


It’s like the platform absorbs the shock of the floor with each step you take, whereas the other ones make it feel like you are just straight up stomping on concrete. I do have my limits though I mean, you can’t have platforms like this:

@kkish3:  Lol, I would own shoes like that but they wouldn’t leave my bedroom…

I have had shoes with plastic straps though as a kid and they pinched so I think I would replace the plastic with a different material.

I don’t know.  I don’t get it.  I don’t think all high heels are bad, but some of them are only meant to be seen on a street corner or in a strip joint.  Just sayin’.

I wear high shoes with platforms but don’t think they’re stripper shoes! They make my legs look better and I just love the way they look.

I think it was rachel zoe who started the whole platform pump thing……all the starlets she dressed  wore the sky high laboutins, the oversized sunnies and handbags and the big maxi dress thing. The theory was the bigger your accessories the more emancipated they looked….and the more press coverage they got!!!!

but I think that the kardashians took those shoes to the next level….they invented the inverse proportion rule!!!!…. the smaller my dress…the bigger my shoe!!! Laughing

I just don’t get heels.  I can’t wear them anyway because I have bad toes, but my sister used to wear them all the time for work at a jewelry store.  Her feet are so messed up now.  It just isn’t natural.

@bestbuddies:  used to have a young lady in work years ago that wore suits with her FMP’s…. and didn’t understand why no one took her seriously…her suits weren’t exactly proper/businesslike, either…

I love how other women looks in heels, it looks feminine, sexy and cute. I have a few of heels myself. I have bought a few pairs of stiletto heels (I’ve worn most of them only once), just because they look so good on my feet but after a while they are uncomfortable not to mention I am a sneaker/ballerina/flats girl.

Now, with the wedding coming up in a year, I have all this time to “walk in” a pair of shoes for me that are comfy and “survivable” and I still haven’t found the shoes…
