Looks like this Spring we will be kicking our heels to the curb!
Women will be choosing comfort over stilettos. As I watched alongside the runways during fashion week, one thing that stood out was that top designers were showcasing luxurious alternatives to the ballet flat. Designers like Rag & Bone, Chloe, Calvin Klein, Burberry Prorsum & Fendi, just to name a few, were the leaders for this Spring/Summer’s hottest styles.
According to retail insiders, flats have doubled their sales and have a 100% sell out in stores.
There’s also been a recent string of high-fashion collaborations in the sneaker industry that allow fashionistas to sit front row at Fashion week, or hit the gym in their kicks. Keep in mind these sneakers have a pricey tag on them! Stella McCartney for Adidas happen to be one of my favorites and are super comfortable. ($160-$260) www.stellamccartney.com
Whether you’re going to rock sparkly converse, flatforms or embellished slippers, you’ll be stepping out in extreme comfort and style. This is one trend that will continue to grow in popularity, and the more it does, the less you will need a podiatrist.
