When you think of a cool shoe, do you think of a ballet flat pump? We didn’t think so. Low-heeled pumps are reserved for octogenarians going to church or lunch on Madison Avenue. But allow Lindsay Lohan to change your mind! The actor was spotted in New York this week giving the grandma shoe a brand new feel.
On two separate occasions this week, Lohan was spotted wearing Salvatore Ferragamo’s black Viva pumps, which retail for $850 (AED 3,122) and have a large bow on the toe. They’re a decidedly prim-and-proper shoe, but Lohan made them feel a little more modern and casual. For a Broadway outing this past weekend, she first wore them with a white summer dress complete with fringe and laser-cut detailing, finishing off the ensemble with a luxe Hermès bag (in its signature orange hue). Yesterday, she then paired them with a black lace mini dress for a more monochromatic feel, as well as black shades and a cream Hermès bag.
Lohan isn’t the only star to make them feel fresh. A few years ago, Zoe Kravitz put a cool twist on a pointy kitten heels when she styled them with neon green pants; More recently, Chloë Sevigny embraced the low-heel pump via Margiela’s Tabi shoes, their split-toe detail making it feel instantly hip and downtown-worthy. So, it’s official: Don’t discount the low heel. They’re a versatile piece that can be paired with everything from dresses to jeans. And they’re way more comfy than hobbling around in stilettos!
