I’ve heard about so many cool new flat shoe related things this week that I thought I’d do a little news flash for you. So first time, reporting from the front line of flats, here’s this week’s shoes headlines (at this point you have to imagine me sitting behind a desk reading this out with a serious face).

Orla Kiely for Clarks

Orla Milly, £90, clarks.co.uk (BUY ME HERE!)

We all love Clarks, and we all love Orla Kiely, so this is a collaboration I think you will all be excited about. Launched this week, these are shoes for those of you who love a hint of retro. There is only one flat shoe style in the mix, but it comes in four different colours so there are still plenty to choose from.

 Print your shoes yourself

Maida Pale, £245, self-footwear.co.uk (BUY ME HERE!)

SELF is quite literally BRAND new – the guys behind Cheeky Shoes (who I’ve written about on here before) had this idea over Christmas and have managed to put it all together super quickly. It’s a fantastic concept, particularly for anyone who finds it difficult to get shoes that fit comfortably. SELF will take your foot measurements and print you your own shoe last with a 3D printer, meaning they can then make you a pair of shoes that will fit like a glove. Genius.

 New style crush: Gizzi Erskine


As part of my day job as fashion features editor at InStyle, I spent Tuesday evening hanging out at the annual InStyle Best of British BAFTA party. I was delighted to meet the gorgeous Gizzi Erskine, especially as she was wearing these lovely flat shoes. I asked her about her lack of heels and she told me she’d always rather wear flats because she’s tall and it fits in perfectly with her love of the Sixties. A woman after my own heart!

High street shoe of the week

pointed flats, £79, stories.com (BUY ME HERE!)

I’ve had my eye on these from & Other Stories for a few weeks. The fit is a little too big for me but I can’t get that gorgeous olive green colour out of my head! Maybe I should just buy them and a couple of pairs of thick socks…
