Up Up We Go!

Need a boost in your height but think that the only way to achieve it is to wear heels? This is where you are wrong! Ever heard of creepers, flatform and platform shoes? It's a word that’s been used to death for the past few seasons for its practicality and yet it's so stylish. It’s a godsend for Asian people especially, since most of us need help in the height department. Creepers are like normal shoes except with the extra platform at the soles stacking them high and thick. It's a staple item for any goth lolitas but it can also easily give an outfit a grunge vibe.

"Flatforms" is the marriage between flats and platforms. It's similar to creepers except flatforms come in more variations such as sandals. These shoes will save us from twisted ankles and knee replacements. Aside from the comfort and coolness of flatforms, there are so many options available to complete whichever look you're going for. Now your feet are truly going to thank you for that!

However if you can't live without your heels, you can try out platform shoes. You might already be familiar with them, but these new platform shoes now have thick soles and heels. With this change, platforms are sturdier to walk and also party in it!

They say what goes up must come down but this is definitely unstoppable especially when it has been around since the 1940s and it just keeps on getting more amazing! Besides, what's not to love when they make the vertically challenged (us) appear taller.
