platform shoe trend

This Shoe Trend is Actually Preggers Friendly

shoe-737084_1280

Platform shoes were last popular when worn by the girls on the popular Brit band, The Spice Girls. Interestingly enough, we saw a lot of platforms on the feet of the top models runway shows last fall.  So they are back in style. Ordinarily, you’d think platforms would be off-limits to moms-to-be because that type of shoe elevates the wearer’s height. Pregnant women are often recommended to stay away from high heels because of the fall risk they pose.

An accidental fall could be bad news for mom and baby if she lands wrong from a slip. However, surprisingly, platform shoes give you more security because there is a lot of support on the balls of the feet. Balancing on skinny heels is harder.

Going into the spring season, there are many different options  from sandals, to peep-toe, to booties, to pumps. To give you some ideas on different styles out there, check out these offerings curated with our friends from Shopstyle:

 

The Platform Shoe Trend: Which One Fits Your Personality?

I’m so excited to learn that 70s style clothing, shoes and accessories are trending this Spring. What’s also great for fashionable pregnant mamas to know is that the platform style shoe is also hot. 
I love platforms because they are not as uncomfortable to wear as other high heel styles, yet they come in so many varieties, styles, colors and designs.  The thicker toe area below the balls of the feet provide more support than traditional heels.  For these reasons, the shoe is even a better option for moms-to-be who want some height but not the instability as traditional heels and pumps. 
I’ve curated a collection of styles of platform shoe that have their own personality. Which one matches you best?
