Platform wedges typically prove impractical for moms-to-be and mothers of small children, which means we look at them longingly in stores only to choose a ballet flat or other low-heeled option. Spring ’11 is going to be the season to change that notion. From Stuart Weitzman to Juicy Couture to Steve Madden, the freshest platform wedge sandals are thoroughly walkable thanks to design that creates a nearly even height between the platform and the wedge heel itself. In all price points and in all heights, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect flat platform look for your spring wardrobe.
