Maura’s Mind: Heels vs. Flats and Accidentally, My Take on Platform Heels


Which do you like better? I, personally, am obsessed with heels. I would definitely wear them every day if I had enough. But, at the same time, I love how flats fit. I really only wear flats in the summer, but I will occasionally throw a pair on in the fall or winter. My winter flats are usually tall boots or a closed shoe with laces or something of that nature. I think the main reason why I love heels is because in the winter (my favorite season) they are ankle booties which is my favorite type of shoe. But, at the same time, I do love an old fashioned, NO-PLATFORM heel.

That’s another thing! UGH, PLATFORMS! I do not like platforms. I miss the days when women walked high-for REAL. I feel like platforms are a whimpy escape from wearing heels. Beauty is pain girls and unless you are feeling it-it is not working. Or at least that is how I feel about it. I just think that if you are going to wear heels, you should go all out and wear heels 100% not “3/4″%. Now, I guess I cannot talk because I have a pair or two of heels with a platform. But, I wish I did not. Of course, platform is small and barely does anything for me but, still, I guess I am being a bit hypocritical. But think about it-remember platform flip flops? They were atrocious and no one liked them. How is this any different!?  How is this prettier than this? I can understand how it may be edgier and go with the look but sometimes it is simply a train wreck. I want to go back to the 50s when heels hurt because they were heels and there was no questions about it. Gosh, I was definitely born in the wrong time period-which you will find to be true as I post more and more of my opinions.

Tell me what you think! I love discussing shoes; there’s too much to say about them! Also, look out for two more posts today about trends this season.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. Heels, fashion and beauty should hurt or you are doing it wrong. As a fellow heel lover – with NO platform – I can totally see your point! I wear heels every day, to the point my doctor has told me off! Fashion is pain…. but its so worth it! Love your writing 🙂
