Why Victoria Beckham Is Giving Up Heels for Sneakers

It’s no secret that athleisure has taken the fashion world by a storm (ahem, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid). But, there’s a certain portion of the fashion elite that tends to go the opposite direction in terms of style. Case in point? Victoria Beckham—who likes to step out in polished, professional getups.

So you can imagine how (pleasantly!) surprised we were to hear that even Victoria has had a change of heart on her fashion uniform, at least when it comes to footwear. As People StyleWatch pointed out from her exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Victoria is giving up heels (which she always wears) in favor of sneakers. Why the shift away from her signature style?

“I just can’t do heels anymore,” she says. “I travel a lot. Clothes have to be simple and comfortable.” We couldn’t agree more, Victoria.
