Fashion and trends have often acted as the driving force behind a woman’s wardrobe and shoe choice. Whilst heels have traditionally dominated the runway, on models and in magazines, as of late we are seeing a transitioning trend to more comfortable footwear choice such as low heels, brogues, slides, flats and sneakers. Trends come and go but for now, we are loving the change in scenery for our soles. Now we can look AND feel good. Soaring heights on heels and the consequential pain and suffering is so passé.
Behind this new trend is the ideology that non-heeled shoes are no longer seen as the “daggy” or “lazy” shoe of choice. Not sure how to inject more “fashion” into your flats? Take inspiration from the following fashion bloggers who are embracing the new trend of ditching their heels for shoes that don’t kill!
