Victoria Beckham revealed she's ditching her signature sky-high stilettos in favor of a more practical footwear choice: Flats. The designer, 39, shared a picture of her new designer velvet smoking slippers on Feb. 5. "Obsessed with my @Stubbs_Wootton slippers! #livinginthesetillshowday! x vb #NYFW #VBAW14" she tweeted.

The celeb-favorite flats run a cool $400, and while the velvet pair is a trendier option than a ballet slipper, they likely won't keep Beckham's feet dry in the Polar Vortex-ridden sidewalks of New York.

The former Spice Girl is gearing up for her New York Fashion Week presentation on Feb. 9, but she's still finding a little time to indulge. On Tuesday, the mom of four shared a picture of a plate of cookies with the caption, "Long first day in NY #NYFW #VBAW14 x vb"
