How does the platform affect the shoe’s heel height?

by Heel Shields

Have you ever wondered how people can walk in six and seven inch heels?  Well in actuality, even though the heel height might be recorded as 6 or 7 inches, the real height may only be 5 or so inches.  So, what that says for us regular girls, who ONLY want to wear a 3 to 4 inch heel,  IS that we can still get the HOT shoe by buying the shoes that have the covered  or hidden platform.

Take for example this shoe by Brian Atwood.  Brian Atwood maniac pink patent Pumps   5805   The heel height is listed at 4 3/4 inches.  However when you take into consideration that the hidden platform is 1 1/4 inches the heel height is actually 3 1/2 inches.  And if that is still too high, you can probably ( have to take it to the Cobbler to be sure) take off the size of the heel cap to lower the shoe another 1/8 inch.   So you have a beautiful shoe that looks high but really isn’t.

This Christian Louboutin is another example of the hidden platform affect.  The height of the heel is listed at 5 inches.  The hidden platform is 3/4 inches giving you a heel height of 4 1/4 inches.  Take away another eighth of an inch for the heel cap and you are very close to a 4 inch heel, which is very wearable (meaning your feet should NOT hurt).    christian louboutin Tell Me Peep-Toe Pumps 1347
