Lordy! If 2009 was the year of the big platform, it’s starting to look like 2010 will be the year of the, er, even bigger platform. I’m not adverse to platforms (in fact, I’ve become so accustomed to seeing them now that shoes that DON’T have some kind of built-up sole have started to look almost “naked” to me, somehow), but when they get to the size of the platforms on these Carvela shoes, I think they start to look odd, and become very difficult to wear. I used the term “stripper shoes” yesterday, and while these lack the perspex soles, I think, once again, a really lovely shoe has been just a little bit spoiled by the monstrous platform.
What do you think? If you disagree, these are £100 at Kurt Geiger.
