Victoria Beckham's shoes are always the height of fashion

An A to Z of Posh’s high heels: From the airport to the zoo, proof that Victoria Beckham’s shoes are always the height of fashion

A quarter of a century has passed since the Spice Girls burst on to the music scene. 

During that time, Victoria Beckham has had many reinventions on her journey from pop star to WAG and fashionista. 

While her hairdos (and bust size) may have changed over the years, there has been one constant: her love of impossibly high heels. ‘I can’t concentrate in flats,’ she once said.

Get ready for your bunions to throb as CLAUDIA CONNELL celebrates 25 years of Posh, with an A-Z of all the unlikely occasions she has worn her trademark skyscraper stilettos.

A is for AIRPORT 

As a designer, Victoria’s constantly flying between London and New York, including in November 2019 at JFK airport in a £1,190 pair of her own-brand peep-toe boots

B is for BASEBALL

Who says trainers need to be flat? When in LA, she pitched a baseball in £500 Dries Van Noten wedge sneakers in July 2007

C is for CRUTCHES 

In March 2018 she fractured her foot skiing, proving that no good comes of wearing flat shoes. She wore a £1,250 pair of her own-label boots on crutches in the street

D is for DISNEYLAND 

In February 2007 she took elder sons Brooklyn and Romeo to the theme park in LA — and chose sandals with 6 in heels to meet Mickey and co.

E is for EUROPE

Once Queen of the Wags, she wore £845 Louboutins for a European shopping trip in Baden-Baden, Germany, during the 2006 World Cup

F is for FISH & CHIPS 

Cod, chips — and corn plasters if you have them. Only Posh could wear £1,450 Louboutin boots when nipping to the chippy with son Cruz in January 2013

G is for GRASS

In July 2007 on the pitch at LA Galaxy, Victoria mastered what every woman dreams of: wearing stilettos without them sinking into the mud

H is for HOLIDAY

Flip flops? Not when you can wear scarlet, tasselled Balenciaga heels, an unusual choice for Sydney’s Manly beach in October 2018

I is for ICE

Steady as you go. Were £495 Jimmy Choos the best choice for New York’s icy sidewalks in February 2014?

J is for JOGGING

In November 2017 she put a jokey pic on Instagram on a treadmill in her £1,250 boots. She hasn’t jogged outside in heels yet — give it time

K is for KICKABOUT 

Who needs football boots? Her £795 Louboutins were just the job when she took her sons for a game in May 2011

L is for LADDER

When your heels are that high you shouldn’t need a ladder but Posh climbed hers in December 2020, along with PVC trousers

M is for MARATHON

On your marks, get set . . . go home. Thank goodness she didn’t intend to run the 2015 London marathon in her £990 Alaia boots

N is for NBA BASKETBALL

How thrilled she looks to be at an LA Lakers game in October 2009? She had £900 studded Louboutins to distract her

O is for OLYMPIC GAMES

While husband David looked dashing with the torch at the opening ceremony of London 2012, Victoria looked wobbly on a taxi roof in £515 Manolo Blahniks at the closing ceremony

Well, who doesn’t chill out at home in £550 Dior heels while doing the splits? It was in 2017

Joining the swinging set in July 2009 in her £700 Louboutins

Credit where it’s due, she did take her heels down to 3 in when she caught the Eurostar in May 2019 wearing white stilettos from her own label

U is for UNDERCOVER

Clowning around in £685 Casadei heels in 2013

V is for VERSAILLES

Posh and Becks were treated to a private tour of Versailles in July 2019 where she wore £450 stilettos. Let’s hope the guide walked slowly

W is for WORKING

Sly slippers are the Zoom choice for many women working from home — apart from VB

X is for X-RATED

Flogging Armani undies in 2009. Bra, knickers . . . and heels

Nobody knows if Posh gave birth in heels — but she cradled newborn Harper while wearing giant £850 Alaia ankle boots in 2011

Lions, tigers, bears . . . and Louboutins. Enjoying a trip to San Diego Zoo with Cruz in 2008
