If there’s one thing Victoria Beckham’s known for – bar her infamous pout, killer clobber and GORGEOUS hubby, obvs – it’s her unadulterated love of high heels. A self-confessed stiletto addict, the 41-year-old fashion designer has rarely been papped in anything less than a four-inch heel since she kicked off her flatforms to the curb and left her Spice Girls days forever behind her.
That was the case, until she landed in New York City ahead of her Victoria Beckham AW16 Fashion Week show. On several occasions on the run-up to the event, VB was clocked heading to and from meetings rocking a pair of stark white Stan Smiths – a far cry from her Casadei heel obsession.
As it turns out, her decision to forgo teetering heels in favour of comfy kicks wasn’t entirely her own. In fact, it’s doctor’s orders. ‘I just can’t do heels any more. At least not when I’m working. I travel a lot, and they pose a problem’, she revealed to the Telegraph newspaper.
While she reaffirmed the fact that we’ll still see her rocking uh-amazing heels at parties and major events, it looks like her Adidas sneaks are going to become her everyday staple. Not that we’re complaining mind – after all, we can hardly ever afford to buy the actually pieces Victoria chooses to don. We can, however, stretch to the £67 price tag of her newfound fave shoes. An excuse to indulge in some retail therapy if there ever was one, AMIRIGHT?
