I had a debate of the fashion kind at the weekend with my friend E. The subject? Slipper flats. E said they’re not for her but as London Fashion Week looms in just under a month and I’m hoping to get my fix that I missed in February, I’m thinking yes.
Yes to no high heel pain. Yes to being able to skip across the cobbles of Somerset House without looking like a giraffe on the verge of toppling and yes to a footwear trend that offers comfort and style in one. Can you imagine the joy?
Some are calling them slippers, others use the term loafers…I may call them sole savers if I can find a suitable pair. I’m already imagining preppy chic or tomboy cool and am now firmly committing myself to a the slipper flat search. Here’s a few that I would happily slip on and loaf around in…
