Sky’s the LIMIT | Platform Heels


If you’re a girly-girl, at some point in your childhood, you begged your mom to let you wear heels. When you weren’t running around in light up L.A Gears, you tried on your mom’s seemingly larger than life pumps or pranced around in “glam heels” from your “play dress up” set. Once you were finally allowed to wear heels, they were probably 1.5 inches high and equally thick.

Well we aren’t talking about barely there, 1.5″ starter heels today. We’re talking about shoes with a minimum height of 4″!

I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen BeyoncĂ© pounding the pavement in anything remotely resembling a flat shoe. Sky high heels – both on and off stage – appear to be her forte. Whether it’s a trans-Atlantic flight, shopping excursion, or a date night with Mr. Carter, BeyoncĂ© loves her heels. She is pictured out & about in NYC in a pair of stiletto YSL “Tribute” sandals with a 4″ heel & and an additional 1″ platform.Then there’s Rihanna. Although from time to time we see her dressed down in sneakers & flat sandals, the shoes stepping out of the ubiquitous black SUV are usually platforms. She’s pictured here in a pair of geometrically shaped, buckled Giuseppe Zannotti wedges with a 5″ heel & a 1 3/4″ platform.

These fashionistas are experts at appearing to walk on air or do a fantastic job at pretending to do so. The key here is the platform – hidden or otherwise. The platform decreases the steep angle of shoes, making them easier to walk in & ultimately more comfortable!
