The Flats V Heels War

7 October 2014

What better way to start a Saturday than with a dance lesson down at Pineapple Studios! Today I joined forces with 5 fabulous bloggers to answer the question asked by Westfield.. flats or heels? The hour and a half class consisted of us all shaking our booties in both flats and heels, at the end we had to choose which one we preferred! 

After the designer brand, Celine, brought in sneakers last season everyone from designer brands to highstreet have been going crazy for the combination of trainers mixed with everything from suits to dresses!! The trainer/flats trend has only grown since due to the fact we can now all walk, run or skip down the street looking fashionably fabulous and not worrying that we are going to fall flat on our faces! 

 The lovely Strawberry Sisters..

So my verdict...

After dancing away like an uncoordinated elephant in my Nike Trainers, I swapped to my heels thinking 'things are only going to get worse' but infact that wasn't the case. My posture improved and my hips flung themselves from side to side with so much more ease!! 

It's a well known fact that we all feel sexier in heels and walk with more confidence (depending on the heel height) but it's also a well known fact that wearing stilettos every day isn't that great for our bodies. One in ten women wear high heels at least three days a week and a third have fallen while wearing them. Statistics show that high heels are one of the biggest factors leading to foot problems in women, with up to a third suffering permanent problems as a result of prolonged wear.

So who wins.. flats or heels; that's pretty easy to answer, both of course! Wearing flat shoes which also look great is physically better for your body but wearing heels once in a while, will make you feel better and more confident. 

So as my trainer collection increases by the day so does my trusty heels, the only problem is how many rooms of shoes are you allowed to take up with your collection before you're named an addict?!
