I took the streetcar out to the Castro one evening in SF. It is still a fun and amazing place. I ran across these in a little variety store on Castro Street. Dawn French recently posted on Facebook that she admired the elegant ladies would could strut around on six-inch heels all day and hardly break a sweat. If you are more likely to trip and fall over your flip-flops, she is your soul sister. I agree. I never have understood how anyone could walk in these instruments of torture.
I came of age in the late 1970's, I remember wearing platform shoes. A 3/4 inch base and a 2 inch heel, my father thought it was the end of the earth, my mother simply said, kids will be kids and wear things that shock their parents. I was not disappointed when platform shoes drifted out of style. After that it was boots and Adidas for a decade.
Did you wear platform shoes?
