The Zhang Yichao 2010 China Fashion Week Show intensely upgrades the high heel platform. Some of these shoes, over ten inches tall, had models tripping and falling all over the runway. The various see-through, flowered and solid designs don’t hide the height in these crazy pumps.

Platform stilettos may be up and coming for this year's Fall/Winter season, but for those of us who aren’t strutting the runway, we should probably opt for something with a slightly lower heel that won’t break our ankles.
