For the past two years, we have witnessed the fashion world trading in uncomfortably high heels and shoes that simply make your feet hurt after an hour or two of wear, to more utilitarian styles that are as stylish as they are comfortable. From lug soles (which provide more traction for walking), to flatforms, to soft foot beds (à la Birkenstock’s patented foot bed), “comfort” shoes continue to trend.
During the SS 2015 Haute Couture shows, we saw a few statement flats gracing runways in the form of Birkenstock-like sandals, ballet flats with decadent bows or trimmings, and anything cute that has little to no heel, really. Of course we are head-over-heels in love with this trend, so here are a few of our favourite styles to help you start your spring off fashionably and comfortably!
The thing that we love most about these Josef Seibel “Pippa” leather ballet flats is the detailed bow that adds a touch of flair to an otherwise simple pair of flats. Wear these on a casual day, to the office, on a laid back date – anywhere – and be confident that you will surely impress everyone.
Just when you thought ballet flats couldn’t get any cuter, in comes the Josef Seibel “Pippa” with a leathery perforated twist! These flats are ready to be paired with your best nautical inspired outfit, short shorts, skater dresses – the list of outfit possibilities goes on!
These Hush Puppies “Emmaline Chaste” basket weave leather flats are your quintessential ballet flats, but with a bit of flair. These flats are as versatile as they are timeless and will certainly take you through summer and into fall!
Looking for something simpler that you can throw on at any time? These Hugh Puppies “Torey Ballentine” leather flats are just what you need! Wear these to work, while running errands, during a casual outing, with jeans, slacks, shorts, minis – anything.
