With yesterday’s news that Kim Kardashian West is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West, we at FN immediately recalled her shoe style while pregnant with her daughter, North West.
While most mothers-to-be sport comfy flats or on-the-go runners, the reality star chose to keep her signature designer heels while pregnant, frequently sporting styles from Givenchy, Christian Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti.
West even Instagrammed an aftermath shot of Mrs. West wearing her torturous shoes, captioning the photo, “Swollen feet or a new Givenchy tattoo?”
Now, with her second child on the way, West’s penchant for designer footwear is likely not going anywhere. Luckily, the current spring market has a number of sleek options that fit her style.
Tamara Mellon’s strappy sandals would, at least, keep her safely strapped in. And a barely-there sandal, like styles from Givenchy or Saint Laurent, would not restrict her swollen feet.
But while we’re all for staying true to your fashion identity, there’s nothing wrong with embracing the flat — even if it’s on the sly. (West could consider a pair of foldable ballet flats from Bagllerina, which she could easily hide in her purse).
