Who has spent time and money over the last few years longing for and/or buying heels and shoes that suddenly seem so wrong because the pandemic has changed how we live? I am included in that category–Bottega high-heeled slides, where am I wearing those? (They are going to The Real Real.)
I love this latest round of ballet flats; some like the Khaite and Louboutin shown here have a squared off toe much like ballet dancers’ toe shoes. Having studied to be a classical dancer I have shied away from these before (perhaps too many painful foot memories), but now, with a need for more flats in my wardrobe, I am drawn to them. The Toteme quilted versions are equally nice. None of these are inexpensive, but they are also classics. To be worn with jeans like the image I took here from Linn Hagglund, a Swedish (I believe) stylist who works with Toteme (but is wearing the Khaite shoes? Maybe she works for them too?) If you find the Louboutin sold out in link below, try here and here.
