Shoe Porn: Flat is the New Black

This Fendi platform, shown at Milan Fashion Week, is amazing for several reasons: the colors, the varying textures, the elegance of the curves. But most notably, this shoe is almost parallel to the ground. That means that you get all the added height without any of the pain and ongoing health problems associated with heels.

Could these be the wave of the future?

      Cute. I’ll still manage to fall off them.

      These Fendi shoes retail for more money than I have in my savings account. Can anyone point me to something less expensive that still has that height, that flatness, and some sort of ankle hold (straps on sandal or buckles or laces on boots)? I’m an American size 8 if that matters.
