When the weather is looking gloomy, nothing is better than slipping on a pair of your favourite anti-4-inch flats, and easily maneuvering through the bustle of life, without having to worry about toppling to one's knees.
Don't get Sleuth wrong, it's every woman's right to bare heels, however high and ankle-threatening they may be. Nothing makes a Shopista feel sexier and ready to take on the town than slipping on a pair of stilettos, instantly lengthening the calves and heightening the self confidence.
The big 'but' here is that while heels are fabulous, so are flats - with the extra bonus of being comfortable as well. Designers have watched women over the years secretly stash a pair of flats under their desks, to be slipped on when no-one is looking.
Even a scene in The Devil Wears Prada shows that even the most fabulous of the fashionistas working at Vogue are prone to kick off the old stilts and opt for a comfier pair of flats.
Thankfully even the designer big-wigs are now embracing the revolution of the flats, providing us with a gorgeous array of fashionable flat options to go back with both summer and winter ensembles.
Below is a selection of flats Sleuth will be lusting after this season to help encourage Shopistas to have their own attack of the flats!
