I am 5’3″, so naturally I jumped on the platform heel bandwagon a few years ago. I am sure many of you did, too. It is hard to say no to a shoe that adds so many inches to our height. Am I right ladies?

When we wear them we feel like we are on top of the world. The only problem – walking in them is not easy. We do not look pretty trying to keep ourselves from toppling over in them. The platform heel can also make our feet look a bit clunky. This look is the exact opposite of what we are trying to achieve.

I’m happy to tell you that the single sole heel is back. The thin sole and the delicate heel provide a sleek, sophisticated silhouette. This style can also give the illusion of a longer leg. The single sole heel is the perfect shoe to pair with pencil skirts, tailored dresses and even your favorite boyfriend jeans.

Start investing in a few new pairs now or break out the ones you stashed in the back of your closet.You will be wearing them once spring arrives.

Here are a few single sole heels I’m ready to stock up on for the upcoming season.
