Malika spike toe flats by Giuseppe Zanotti

Your lunchbreak treat today comes in the form of an unusually wearable and understated ballet flat from Giuseppe Zanotti. Malika is made in a soft dove grey suede, and features a black metallic spiked toe. Even this however is subtle and understated (we are not talking Christian Louboutin Asteroids here!) and these would look very chic for a work shoe.

They are so simple and understated, and prove without a doubt how talented and diverse Zanotti and his designs really are. The toe cap is sweet and beautifully conceptualised, but is also sweet and edgy. I love his towering heels and sculpted wedges - yes ALL of them - but these simple flats also have a huge place in my heart, and I don't often look at a pair of flat shoes for anything other than being practical.  GZ manages to take the humble ballet flat and turn it into something to be celebrated.
