Fashion designer and Spice Girls singer is known for her fondness for the ankle-breaking yet stylish footwear, even telling dd Glamour in 2008 she “can’t concentrate in flats.”
She has occasionally put them on and in February, she raised eyebrows when she was spotted wearing them while walking in London. She also donned sneakers in New York, including (gasp!) on the runway of her Fall 2016 show.
Surprise turned to shock when she told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph.
“I just can’t do heels any more. At least not when I’m working,” she says.
“I travel a lot. Clothes have to be simple and comfortable.”
Victoria has not ditched her high heels entirely. On Thursday, March 31, she posted on her Instagram page a photo showing her lounging on a couch and doing a very high leg lift while wearing five-inch black pumps.
“It’s amazing what you can do in culottes…those ballet classes are paying off!” Victoria wrote.
Victoria had showcased the same pose with similar heels while wearing a jumpsuit during a trip to Singapore last year.

1. Perform with the Spice Girls, of course:

2. Get the A-list treatment during a photo shoot:
3. Stand on a ladder and decorate a Christmas tree:
