I’ve never liked flat lace-ups. They have that masculine kind of look to them (or maybe it’s just the memory of too many pairs of “sensible” school shoes!) that can look fantastic on some people, but is just all wrong for me, so they’re a style I’ve always avoided. I know lots of you love this look, though, and it’s one we’ve been seeing a lot of over the past few months, and will no doubt see even more of in the next few.
ASOS have tried to make these ‘Magnolia’ flats a little more feminine with the addition of the all-over ditsy print. Does the clash of masculine and feminine work here, though? I’m going to let you be the judge of that – I’m far to biased to provide an objective opinion on this one, but if you’re firmly in favour of these, they’re £28 at ASOS.com.
