Heels Getting Higher As The Economy Dips? Your Feet Will Hate You Less In A Platform

Historically, heels get higher when the economy is good and lower when the economy is at a decline.  Well, you only have to look at the red carpet and your own recent purchases (including a possible trip to the chiropractor) to prove that this is obviously not the case right now. As we reported earlier, when the going gets tough, the heels skyrocket.

So how do you wear high heels but minimize suffering? Platforms, of course! The platform underneath the ball of the foot gives you some additional stability and prevents the pad of the foot from continuously striking the ground.  Here are some options if you want to reach for the sky:


Cash: These French Connection Jelena Heels ($70) are stylishly studded and have the platform already built into their office-to-evening style.

ATM: A cross between gladiator and the bootie style, these Pour La Victoire Bianca Leather Cut Out Heels in Black ($288) are super hot and could be worn with tights for colder nights.
