Flat shoes have totally replaced heels, and we couldn't have been happier about it. Gone are the days when the fashion girls teetered around in stilettos, falling over the Somerset House cobblestones, now the cool crowd are wearing trainers, brogues and mannish loafers.
Though it looked as if they were slowly making their way back, with more inches than we'd seen for a while at AW15, with models - even at Stella McCartney and Burberry - in heeled boots and pumps, the message from the SS16 catwalk is clear: flats are (still) back. (Phew.)
From monk shoes, classic Oxford brogues and loafers, to printed sneakers, trainers and embellished slippers, the flat shoe is hot and there's a lot to choose from.
Not that anyone will be TOO surprised by the versatiliy of flat shoes anymore, but they're perfect for giving evening wear a cool, dressed-down edge - as Alexa Chung proved at London Fashion Week - and now you can even wear trainers to work... Yes, workwear trainers are a thing! Our favourite office look RN is going a bit gender neutral with a suit and trainers or loafers.
With the grey weather solidly back, we're looking forward to chunky mannish shoes like brogues and loafers with socks (which we've seen on all the hottest street stylers in recent weeks).
One of the best thing about this season's flat shoe is they can be worn with pretty much everything. Still not sure? Our resident flat fanatic Hannah Rochell shows you how to wear trainers with YOUR wardrobe.
