I found myself asking the inevitable question. Has fashion killed sneakers for you? Was it the memes that did you in? If you are still not completely convinced to hop off the rubber sole train just yet, Christian Louboutin SS16 Solasofia Flats In Seven Nude Hues might spark your interest.
When it comes to flats I tend to lean towards easygoing options in the same reliable neither-in-nor-out middle ground that sneakers used to occupy. Ballet flats, for one, are appealing to me for the first time since, like, 2008. Especially nude fuss-free, or the complete opposite in colorful designs that teeter on the edge of prim. It’s an interesting way to balance out the baggier pants that are permeating my wardrobe as of late.
A pair of Christian Louboutin is well worth the investment. Like any shoes once you break them in, they literally become apart of your feet. Following his 2013 Nudes collection which featured stilettos in a spectrum of different skin tones, the designer has dropped a range of flats using the same concept. Made from a buttery napa leather, the shoe retails at $595 USD. The line takes Louboutin’s SS16 Solasofia ballet flat and covers it in seven nude hues, aiming to meet a range of skin tones.
I probably don’t need to tell you why this is a good thing. And thankfully, the trend of flats are quickly catching on. And talk about inclusive fashion at its best foot forward.
After all the virility from “Damn, Daniel” I am definitely ready to trade in some of my rubber soles for flats.
