While most celebs have already slipped into minimal sandal mode, Taylor Swift has recently discovered a love for fat heels, and I don’t fault her; a good chunky-heeled shoe is far easier to walk in than a designer stiletto. And, while T-Swift is no stranger to designer stilettos, I have never gotten the sense that she loves then with quite the same ardor as some of her A-list peers. (Honestly, I admire, but in no way understand women who live in heels 24/7.) Yet, she does have those long (and extremely well-insured) legs to flaunt. Enter: the chunky-heeled short boot or sandal. Specifically, the black, chunky-heeled short boot or sandal. Because color is too predictable for April.

Taylor wore an imposing pair of glossy, patent leather Giuseppe Zanotti Lavinia Platform Boots to last weekend’s “I Heart Music” Awards. And in case you were wondering, that’s a six-inch chunky heel. All the better to stomp on Justin Bieber’s face with, my dear.

Finally, here’s Taylor shopping at Isabel Marant in LA with one of her many supermodel friends, Lily Aldridge. She’s wearing a pair of towering platform booties from the French label Vetements.
