5 flats for every occasion

Whoever got flats to trend; our feet are thankful.

For the longest time heels were practically the uniform for those working in the fashion industry, from shop floor through to the PR boardroom and our poor little toes need a truly deserved horizontal break. Might I also add that juggling multiple trays of coffee for the office in heels is a skill that deserves as much applause as a unicyclist on a tightrope. 

Nope, working in fashion is not as glamorous as you may well think. It’s not sitting behind your desk with admiring your pretty little Giuseppe Zanotti feet; it’s running for the tube in heels, walking stylists through the showroom while your soles burn and attending press appointments on the other side of town. 

But the troops, the real troops, are those poor fashion interns lugging samples across from one end of the city to the other, going through boxes of band aid as rapidly an Editor goes through cups of coffee. This post is dedicated to you guys! 

Here are my 5 flats for every occasion…

    Love this post! I used to live in heels but over the last couple of years I’ve fully embraced flats and I love them!

    Very cool post. I like the idea to change the heels sometimes to flats and it looks almost the same in your photos 😉

    I love the white ones but unfotunately they are a little bit to expensive. But now i know what I’m going to buy next time. Tank you!

    I am so glad these days are gone! Running in heels is no fun. Flats can be super stylish too so thanks for sharing this article, I was reading it feeling relieved! 🙂
    P.S. Absolutely love the Nicholas Kirkwood flats.

    Flats are my staples. Thanks for this post on all the lovely shoes. Love the Nicholas Kirkwood one the most.

    Strangely I love the Nicholas Kirkwood pair. I usually don’t like pointy shoes. However, my favorite is the Valentino.

    Obsessed with all these shoes. Also jealous of your London location, a close friend of mine use to live there and still talks about moving back there.

    Great post! I literally live in flats all day every day, heels are only for special occasions. Currently lusting over the Valentino Rockstuds but have’t had a change to try them on yet and heard that the sizes come small? Did you get your size or had to go one size up? Thanks xxx
