TheFind Guest Post: Love It or Hate It: 70s-Inspired Flatform Sandals

No, you didn't read that incorrectly, and it's not a typo. Flatform sandals -- in the form of espadrilles, cork wedges, and even suede -- are the newly-revamped 70s style that's taking retro-modern platform sandals to new heights! Instead of a heightened heel, flatforms are simply elevated flats for a look that stays "level" yet manages to lengthen legs at the same time! They're undeniably comfortable, and won't have your hurting after standing in them all day at your next summer gathering, but still give you that trendy clunky look to off-balance a flirty skirt or girly sundress. While some styles take the trend a little more literally than others (think brick-like platforms as opposed to subtly-sloped wedges), the overall look is chunky and funky and definitely not for those looking for a delicate heel!
