For all the ladies who’ve had enough of those damn high heels, we have good news! Flat shoes are back in fashion. And we’re not talking about shoes with a more subtle heel. No we’re talking about no heel at all!

Especially the sandals are more flat than ever. A pity for the smaller ladies, but the good thing is it – literally – keeps you quite down to earth. Opt for the ballerina look like Chloe, Miyake and Oscar de la Renta or choose some sunny sandals as shown in fashion shows of Alberta Ferretti, Bottega Veneta, Derek Lam, Diesel and Anna Sui.

The best part is those sandals come in every color and style. So you can easily mix ‘n match your colorblocking, masculine or minimalistic clothing style with your shoes. And since they’re affordable and super comfy there’s really no excuse not to want a pair of those easy chic shoes of your own.


Catwalktrends SS2010: sexy sandals

We know women look their best wearing high heels. But a girl needs to be able to wear some comfortable shoes from time to time as well. Especially in the summer when she just likes to chill and hang out on the beach. For those easy breezy days the sandal is the perfect footwear. Sandals are comfortable, your feet are able to breath in them and they are still sexy.

On the runway sandals were worn too. It must have been a relief for the models who mostly have to walk in towering high shoes like the crazy Versace, McQueen and Galliano shoes from this season.

Armani, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Karl Lagerfeld all used sandals in their shows. They formed a big contrast with the high heels, not only because of their height but also because of their looks. The sandals were flat, plain and didn’t have any color in them (we only saw them in black and brown). Armani fortunately did add a flower to his sandals, Anna Sui decorated hers as well and at Valentino a bow was put at the back of the sandals.

When comparing sandals and high heels, we must admit sandals look a lot less fun. Yet for a day off they’re a great alternative.
