Inspired by the elegance of the ballet shoe, flats have made a resurgence thanks to their practicality and simplicity. So easy to slip on, you can pair them with almost any outfit for an instantly elevated look. Popularised by Kate Moss and Alexa Chung in the early 2000’s, these comfortable flat shoes are finally getting the recognition they deserve and we think it’s about time. So swap out your high heels, put aside your sandals and step into a stylish flat.
