Flatforms 101

It's the spring sandal everyone's tweeting about, but will you be wearing flatforms in warmer weather? The thick soles may be nothing new – they’ve been trending for seasons – but the latest iteration is the most wearable yet.


The benefit of this sporty look is due to its supportive soles. Make sure you apply this style wisely. To start, try a sleek city look (think solid color culottes worn with a breezy tank) in need of a lift. Mix in a pair of flatforms (like DKNY’s monochrome style) and let your feet do the talking.


Love skirts or dresses with sneakers? This is a wardrobe equation that really adds up: sub out your favorite runners for lug-sole sandals (flat rubber sole with a serrated edge – Dolce Vita makes a silver pair) and go. You’ll enjoy the comfort of a running shoe with runway-ready know-how.


Or, try the classic flatform, otherwise known as the slip-on, courtesy of Vans for J. Crew. A style with metallic shine makes every move a statement step.
