Emerging music talent Emeli Sandé likes to keep her shoe choices simple.

Before hitting the stage at the Steve Madden Music Summer Series in New York last week, the Scottish singer and songwriter noted she prefers brogues and flats during her performances. “When I’m on stage, I want to reflect the music: simple but effective,” she said. “I want to wear things that are comfortable.”

According to Sandé, that will especially be the case this summer, when she opens for Coldplay. “There are going to be big stages, so I want something I can run back and forth in,” she said, naming Prada as a fav.

As for whether Sandé would ever dabble in the fashion industry, she’s not ruling it out. “I would want to be in a position where I really had time to focus on it. At the moment I have music on the mind.”
