Besides that you can step up your fashion level with sneakers with a velvet upper, metallic sneakers, glitter sneakers and suede slip ons. 

Comfortable heights with platform sneakers

All fun and games but what are flatforms, or platform sneakers exactly? Well this one's easy to answer.. Flatforms are basically sneakers, or sandals, with a platform sole, a thick sole. They are as comfy as your good old sneakers, but bring a little more fashion game to your look. We've spotted a lot of it-girls with the flatform trend so you know this one is a keeper!

Spice up your life!

The flatform trend takes us back to the 90's, when we nailed our Spcie Girl-routines and wanted to look exactly like Baby Spice. Of course the typical mid-nineties look wasn't complete without the iconic platform sneakers. When we say platform, you'll say Spice Girls. So why not bring those glorious fashion days back, a bit alternated to fit the 2017's fashion standards of course. Spice up your life and buy those flatform sneakers! 

For all our shorties out there; we feel your struggle. It's hard walking around in heels all day being the boss lady that you are. So why not give your feet a little break and trade your heeled sandals or pumps for flatform shoes? Your feet will thank you and you'll still be adding a little extra to your height #winning!
