And if you live in New York City, you have been lucky enough to have enjoyed the amusing sight of a woman trying to make her way, over deep dark pot holes, dusty gravel, block wide vent grids, good old gobble stone streets and what not, stylishly and seemingly without any distress, cross town in her brand new platforms!
Not that those shoes were not in style before in the 1980's and the early Nineties and even the 70's actually, before the American sneakers stole the show and designers like me proclaimed that sneakers are even to be worn with evening gowns. Of course platforms are not new, but they are definitely in style again, actually they are the only old school shoe that seem new at the moment.
You have not bought yourself a wedge shoe yet?! Get going and get some band aids with them too, as, unless you spend a half a fortune on a high end wedge sandal, you'll get scratched. No matter how stylish you look and how good you manage walking down the bumpy roads, you will get hurt, let me tell you.
I experience it myself every single day of this Summer 2011 so far.
Well, it 'aint so pretty now 'aint it? I am now longing for the days when the good old Air Nike sneaker comes back in style...
