PLATFORM SHOES.



I have been giving this a lot of thought, and maybe it is time I air my view, even if it means a few ladies are gonna wish they can cut my heart out.
Yes, platforms. My opinion, I am not crazy about them, they tend to give false impression. I mean, a seven inch heel, no foot, (a normal one ok?) can lift that high under normal circumstances, let alone walk like that, so they are clever, they build a huge platform under the ball of the foot. Hell, that's false man, like a two faced, bottom dealin' poker player.

Let's use Megan as an example, the ones in this picture are not that bad, granted, but in my opinion it would have looked much nicer had her toes been flat on the ground and her heels elevated around 4 to 5 inches.



Now compare the picture above, to this one down here of Adriana Lima. What do you think, which looks more real, more true??


Here is a great example of platform shoes messing up a great looking outfit, big time. Heidi looking especially nice, make up, perfect, hair looking great,(from a man's point of view ok?) beautiful dress, complete with fairy wings! A pretty picture as long as you don't take into account those shoes!! They spoil everything. Juk, they are hideous!



More spoilers.... this time Kim shows me how to mess up a great outfit.



Here is a perfect example, zoom in and compare the shoes of Teri Hatcher to those of the lady in the background. You be the judge, which looks better? Be honest now...



Finally, the ideal picture, Ava showing us what it should look like, heel about 4, maybe 5 inches above the red carpet, front of foot flat on the ground. PERFECT!
Nothing false 'bout that. The perfect picture!!



I am sure I am going to get some flak about this post, but I am equally sure I will be able to handle it, so let's have it.

Actually I like Kim's shoes and I'm not too fond of shoes with overly pointed toes myself but you'll learn this and comment on it I'm sure.

First photo: Her feet looks spreading. It would be nice if she was wearing closed shoes.

The last photo: It looks like Eva Mendez. Lovin her legs and heels :-)

Shoe Fairy, thanks for the comment, well, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and taste, to be honest, I want people to differ from me, it makes it so much more interesting. By the way, so far I have liked all the shoes you have modelled on your site.

DJ Tammy, actually it is Ava Longoria, but I must be honest, if the name didnt come with the picture I would not have known any better. Yes, I agree, Megan would have looked so much better with court shoes, which she loves and looks great in. If you scroll down on my blog you will actually see that I favor her. Thanks for your comment, highly appreciated.

U mean Eva Langoria Parker :-) With Megan, she looks great in her other photos.

DJTammy, thanks, I didnt know. Now I just hope I will remember....getting on in the years now, memory and temper are slowly but surely swopping places, memory getting shorter and temper getting longer...
Yes, Megan is one of my all time favorites, she really is a lovely girl. Thanks again for your input, highly appreciated.

Awesome shoes! But, Sigh, now that I'm a "50 something Diva" I' have to be a little more picky about the height in my shoes - I still get cool heels and platforms, I'm just more careful where I wear them - ha! Happy Monday to all!

Colin said...

Hi Ollie, yeah, ain't age a bummer, I am almost 50 and can already feel the pressure when doing things I used to do when younger. I am sure though that heels should not be that much of problem to you. Thanks for the comment, please visit again!

i am ok with any shoe, provided that the wearer is comfortable and safe(LOL) with it.

Colin said...

Ruz, good point you have there....

Core Confusion said...

I think Heidi n Kim's shoes are all good, but then I do have a soft spot for platforms...

Colin said...

Core, thanks for the comment, really appreciate your input, everyone has a right to his or her choice and I respect that. Thanks again.
