We used to wear sneaks with our “office” clothes in late 80′s in NYC. (Remember DK white T with business suit?) The secretaries would wear sneaks instead of street shoes because they walked/commuted to work. They carried their pumps in a tote or left a pair under their desks. Funny that this look is now cool.
Those are not flats, they are fashion shoes, and have a hidden heel. Probably Isabel Marant. If she were wearing them just for comfort, she wouldn’t have chosen those. Plus…Plaid and stilettos would just be….goofy. If she were just wearing aerobic tennis shoes it would be a much different( and more unfortunate) statement.
I really like this… the proportions are just right, and the sturdy high-tops work the way a pair of Docs would in the ensemble. Very much the opposite of that unfortunate ’80′s thing of wearing ugly low-top white aerobic sneakers with skirts!
