Yesterday, while strolling Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive, my gal pal and I discovered that the 16th and 17th century platform shoe, the chopine, has made a come back.

This isn’t the first time they’ve made a return to fashion. In 1956, Martin Friedmann pattened the design. And, if you’re the do-it-yourself type, Francis Classe offers a tutorial on making your own pair. If you attempt it, let me know.
