I don’t know about you, but I have a terrible time wearing high heels. Even when I was younger, my feet just rebelled after a few hours. It’s not surprising; our feet simply weren’t designed to wear that type of footwear. Even Beyonce – as reported in Women’s Day magazine – decided to give up her signature heels for flats after the birth of her daughter. She found that she preferred wearing flats while walking around holding her daughter. So if you needed celebrity validation for ditching your heels, here it is!
But don’t assume that just because you’re wearing flats, you’re not wearing stylish shoes. On the contrary! There are tons and tons of flats that are gorgeous, provide great support, and let you feel comfortable and classy all day long.
One of my favorite dressy flats is the Earthies Vardo. Available in Black or Dark Taupe Suede, it also contains a gorgeous beaded design on the upper. I would have no qualms wearing this with my dressiest outfits, and I’d be assured of being comfortable for whatever event I’d attend. The cupped heel, anatomic arch and cradled toe area of this shoe makes for a wonderful wearing experience. Check it out!
Taos makes a beautiful flat in the Repleat. I love the scrunchy styled upper and the rich leather used in this shoe. It even contains the Aegis microbe shield, which protects against odor and deterioration of the footbed. This is a fantastic everyday shoe.
An elegant flat is the BeautiFeel Skyler. It’s a two-toned shoe with a patent-leather toe, with the rest of the shoe in suede. Available in Black or Champagne Luminous Suede, you could easily wear this for your dressy occasions or to the workplace. And with all BeautiFeel shoes, you can’t beat the handmade quality. Plus, who wouldn’t want to wear a shoe that not only has an anatomically contoured footbed, but also superior cushioning? You will LOVE the way these shoes feel.
One of the most versatile flats I’ve come across is the Clarks Un.Signal. Available in Black, Dark Brown, or Navy leather, this flat is suitable to wear with casual or dressy clothing. I particularly like the contrasting suede accents on the upper, and the arch support and soft leather linings are really comfortable. I could wear this shoe all day and then some!
