If there was ever a show spectacle that would ordinarily draw expectations of the highest of high heels, it would surely be the haute couture. There are, after all, only a select few shows a day, three days of shows and the fact that invitees generally stem from a chauffeur driven alumni. So it was quite grounding to see all matter of flats walking around Paris during the most recent collections.

No doubt inspired by Dior’s bejewelled Fusion trainers (uniting comfort and craftsmanship), and all manner of beautiful sandals and slip-ons from Balenciaga, Celine and Chloe; what’s not to love about high fashion kicks that don’t require tottering in heels.
