It’s not hard getting me excited about high heels. I adore them, collect them, spend too much money on them, hardly ever wear them these days. Flats, on the other hand, seem to never get much of my attention – despite spending about 90% of my time in them. I find them a little boring, uninspired and have a hard time falling in love with them. Until now.
Yesterday I got to see the new Kat Maconie AW11 collection at the Greene & Sheppard press day and I got a whole new level of love for flat shoes – these are my idea of perfection. They’re simple – not fussy, a little rock ‘n roll, and suuuuper comfortable with built-in cushioning. I’ve been a big admirer of Kat Maconie’s shoes since first spotting them at the Felder Felder show a year ago, and later at the Urban Outfitters press day, but now I’m officially a member of the fan club.
The AW11 collection should land in stores around September and I’ll be the first in line to get me a pair. Of flats. Oh quelle horreur…!
