Like It Or Not, The Flatform Sandal Is Back & Better Than Ever

We’ll be the first to admit, we have some mixed feelings on the flatform sandal.

However the more we looked at them, the more we love their edgy, 90s, Spice Girl-flashback feel. The shoes instantly and literally elevates your outfit to another level, and if styled correctly, can even be the focal point of your outfit.

The shoe has made such a comeback, that Steve Madden has brought back those memorable black, platform shoes. They’re minimialistic and have us flashbacking to the glory days of slipping them on with our jeans skirt and running out the door. The Slinky shoes are slightly different in 2017, with a smoother and rounder finish, and a flatter surface than before. They’re available now for pre-order for $69.95, and are available in July, just in time to wear with your daisy dukes.

If you’re still warming up to the idea of the flatform shoe, know that models rocked them on Stella McCartney, Gucci and Prada’s runway. They’ve taken over high fashion designers shoe boxes, and can be found in our favorite budget-friendly retail stores, as well. Not only are they the must-have shoe of the summer, but they also come in different colors, styles, and textures. From metallic buckle style to strappy black leather, these shoes will never fall flat in your closet.

We love that they give you extra height, elongating your stems, and are the perfect alternative for when you don’t feel like killing your feet in heels. Whether you are wearing joggers or a summer dress, there’s a flatform for every look,
