Shoes going all comfy? Surely not?

(Backstage at Giles S/S 2010)

Being of average height I love my high heels, and have been loving the ever-increasing shoe hight trends of this season. Not only do they give me those highly-valued extra inches, but they can transform a basic outfit (think skinny jeans and a top) into something more put-together. Heels also have the ability to transform a persons' shape by both lengthening the body, and helping give a sort of 'butt-lift'.

Today, in the UK Sunday Times in an article entitled, 'The Revenge of The sensible Shoe', Author Gemma Soames highlighted the shoes of lower-elevation that were seen in September's S/S 2010 fashion shows by many of fashion's big-hitters(Marc Jacobs for LV, Marni, Giles to name but a few). Whilst this is all well and good, I for one do not relish the styling challenges that flats pose. For those without stick-thin, uber-long legs, how the hell are we to pull off kitten-heels, brogues, ballet flats and other pavement-hugging styles. I'll be trying to embrace these looks soon, but for the moment, i'll be running for comfort towards my platforms and stilettos.
