Do flatforms EVER look stylish?

Fendi shearling flatform sandals

Fendi’s shearling flatforms: they look a bit like someone’s idea of a joke, don’t they? Like, they’re the kind of shoe you might wrap up and present to someone as a gift, before bursting out laughing, saying, “only joking!” and then presenting them with their REAL present. Either that or a pair of those comedy slippers everyone seems to love – you know the ones which are designed to make you ¬†look like your feet are stuffed inside two giant puppies or something? Hilarious.

These 850 euro designer shoes, however, are equally hilarious to us, as is the idea of people actually walking around in them, in all seriousness. Of course, we’re biased: flatforms are one of those things we’re just never going to understand, so, in a bid to try and come to terms with them, today we ask the question: can flatforms EVER look stylish? Well, let’s take a look…

Here’s Rihanna, trying to “edge up” a pretty dress (because heaven forbid a dress NOT look “edgy”!) with a pair of chunky flatform loafers. Is she making them look stylish, though? You decide…

Lily Collins, meanwhile, wore a similar pair of flatform loafers to the Stella McCartney Autumn 2016 presentation, pairing them with a floral satin bomber jacket and… actually, she seems to be JUST wearing the bomber jacket. Letting the shoes be the focal point of the outfit, perhaps?

Finally, here’s Stellla McCartney herself, in a pair of her own lace-up flatforms (and by “her own” we mean she designed them, not simply that she owns them…):

As the creator of the footwear in question, it’s obviously no surprise to see Stella wearing these, but we’re not sure any of these celebrities have convinced us to give them a go ourselves. So, CAN flatforms EVER look stylish? The jury’s still out…
