Victoria Beckham would never wear sporty clothes with a high heel.

The designer recently created a new ’90s inspired Reebok collection in collaboration with basketball icon Shaquille O’Neal, and debuted her latest line at an event in Los Angeles last Thursday (12Apr18). Though the former Spice Girl has become famous for her glamorous dresses and towering high heels, she believes pairing a stiletto with casual sportswear is a major fashion sin.

“That is one way that I don’t love sportswear, actually,” she explained in an interview with The Guardian. “I don’t love sportswear with a heel because it doesn’t look effortless and I think the whole point of bringing sportswear into the wardrobe is that it should look easy.”

Victoria’s new outlook marks a shift from her mindset back in 2007, where she donned a pair of white, wedge trainers when she was invited to throw the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game. However, the British fashion mogul is one of many designers to welcome the blending of sportswear and high fashion in recent years, and feels that this unfussy vibe is particularly appealing to modern buyers.

“I think people want to be comfortable,” the 44-year-old considered, adding that she likes to see her customers mix sporty pieces with classic tailoring where “it looks effortless as opposed to too contrived.”

Victoria also shared that her own love of exercise means she’s “wanted to create workout clothes for a long, long time.” And though she was the Posh Spice to Mel C’s Sporty in her girl band days, she insists she’d have liked to have been more active during the ’90s.

“I didn’t exercise as much as I do now when I was in the Spice Girls because there wasn’t the time to do it,” she said.
