When it comes to looking at celebrity shoe trends, there always seems to be a pattern – that the shoes they wear, particularly on the red carpet, as strictly for those who travel everywhere by chaffeur driven limo. Vertiginous heels that are designed to give you vertigo, Louboutins that require you to sell a kidney in order to afford them, or some sort of strange creation that frankly defies gravity – not the sort of thing you are going to be wearing to the supermarket or whilst doing the school run.
But some celebrities book the heeled and silly shoe trends to wear things that are practical as well as stylish. Shoes that even us mere mortals could actually walk in without risk of breaking an ankle. Shoes that would work even if you needed to really pound the pavements.
Here are a couple of trends that could sing ‘these shoes are made for walking.’
Classic, elegant, and ever popular, Mary Janes are a style favourite with a host of celebrities, ranging from Kate Moss to Emma Roberts, with Taylor Swift, SJP and Alexa Chung thrown in for good measure. Mary Janes actually come in a range of heel heights, with both single and double strap details. If you are looking for some lower heeled options, Reiker Shoes do some great styles that are both attractive and comfortable enough to wear every day.
Loafers are the coolest shoes to wear with jeans, particularly boyfriend styles with turned up cuffs. The Loafer has become increasingly popular by those who like to dress down a glam frock, or add a slightly androgynous look to an outfit. The queen of the Loafer scene has to be Alexa Chung, who will wear them whether she is sitting front row at fashion week, walking a red carpet, or off duty with her favourite jeans.
