I'm not talking about the YSL Tributes and shoes that have large, obvious platforms. I'm specifically thinking about the Louboutin Rolando but other shoes with subtle platforms as well. I know shoe trends change a lot but I absolutely love wearing designer shoes. I'm a very pragmatic person and try to buy shoes that I know I can wear for a very long time. I'm head over heels in love with the Rolando and am planning on buying a pair of black ones next week. I'm just afraid that in 5 years they'll look dated. I'm not one to care about being trendy but I don't want to look ridiculous either. The Rolando appeals to me because very high heels aren't comfortable but the platform shortens the distance between the ball of the foot and the heel. I tried a pair on back in July and keep kicking myself for not getting a pair. So, do you think subtle platforms are trendy or timeless?
