flatforms

noun; blending
A flat, closed-toe shoe with a platform added to it. Flatforms became popular during the 1990s, and they went through a revival during 2011 and 2012. Not all platform shoes are flatforms; Narrowing has occurred such that only flat, closed-toe shoes with an even platform across the entire sole of the shoe qualify as flatforms.
 
“there’s a new flatform trend happening and I don’t get it.”
Etymology : Blend formed from flat from Old Norse flatr“flat, level” + platform “flat surface” from Middle French plateforme, platte forme “flat form.”
