Why Is Victoria Beckham Wearing Flats?

Victoria Beckham in FlatsFame

It’s a photograph we never thought we’d see: fashion maven Victoria Beckham in flats. But it’s happened; the star was spotted in Hollywood this week without her signature stilettos, opting instead for a pair of plain black flats.

Why the change? A rep for the designer had no comment, but a source confirms to PEOPLE that Beckham must wear flats as she recovers from a slipped disc in her back. So will she be back in heels in time for New York Fashion Week? Only time will tell.

“She’ll have to see how she feels,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Heels will put added pressure on the damaged area but it’s healing well, so it may not be an issue in another couple weeks.”

Regardless, Beckham still looks glam, and fans are wishing the new mom a speedy recovery. “Thank u for your kind messages,” she said in reply on Twitter last week. “I’m feeling much better and enjoying every precious minute with baby Harper, I’m so in love. X VB.”

I think she’s fabulous and chic. And she looks good in flats, her feet must be happy.

Geeze, people, this is the STYLE section, and the article is about her style. The whiny complaints are lame. If you want to read world news, go to CNN.com.

I’m shocked that she doesn’t suffer from more back pain. Wearing the 6 inch heels like she does all of the time, is SO hard on her back. Her foot doctor could have a field day with her. I used to wear heals, but don’t anymore, because of back problems. THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT!

I really thought this article was a joke when I first saw the headline, “Why is Victoria Beckham wearing flats?”. Really, maybe because she wants to. Your articles are almost getting as ridiculous as E!Onlines.

She probably has a slipped disk from wearing heels all during her pregnancy!
