Do Not Want: Mega Platforms

These leather peep-toe oxfords boast a 5.5 inch platform, which I’m pretty sure qualifies them as a circus prop instead of a shoe. Standing perfectly still they’re kinda cute, I guess, if a little “Spice Girl goes to Cambridge,” but seriously, can you imagine navigating sidewalks in these things? Death traps!
