Platform shoes, cherished for their reliable comfort, have spent more than a quarter of a century taking over the stiletto as a woman's heel of choice.
But with this season's return to thinner-soled shoes, Vogue has declared that the reign of the platform, which they believe 'enlarges the lower part of our bodies,' is over
Shoe designer and stylist Tabitha Simmons explained to the magazine: 'I feel that when your shoe is big and clunky, you can look a bit heavier.
Jimmy Choo creative director, Sandra Choi, agreed, saying: 'Single soles have a daintier feel and enhance female curves in the legs and calf area.'
'Don’t give in just because you miss the height and comfort!' she implored.
While Ms Choiadmits platform shoes help a woman appear taller, she believes that any heightening benefits are lost by a universal inability to stride gracefully in chunky soles'
If you consider the stiletto, it’s the perfect proportion. I think it makes you even more feminine, as in the fifties and sixties -Tippi Hedren with a wide, knee-length coat and a stiletto.'
