I read a paragraph that said:
The first thing you notice when she walks into a room is how tall she is, six feet in flats.
What does "in flats" mean? Would it have the same meaning if "in flats" was deleted (i.e. it just read "She is six feet.")?
As used in the sentence flats are a type of (usually) women's shoes that don't have high heels, and are thus "flat".
The expression "six feet in flats" means that the person is very tall, even when wearing flat shoes (ie, even when their height is not exaggerated by heels).
Will it be same if "in flat" was deleted ?Just say"She is six feet".
Removing the expression "in flats" will take away from the intention of the phrase - which is to say that she was unusually tall.
