Flats are the workhorse of any woman’s wardrobe. Comfortable, reliable, easy to wear, they are often the go-to footwear. But despite such noteworthy attributes, they are often out-shined by their stiletto sisters, whose spindly heels ooze glamour, give off feminine vibes and those treacherous heels hint at danger. 

But stilettos only get limited air time – once their pinching agonizing nature is felt, back in the shoe box they go. But like that true best friend, a woman can spend hours with her flats. And to their credit. they have stepped up their game in recent years – there is now a flat for practically any occasion or time of day. Sleek croco-prints gave them an elegance for the office, while sweet suede ballet flats are perfect with jeans on the weekends. And when done in sumptuous materials like velvet, they can hit the town at night. 

And they are also the perfect transitional shoe. Slip your bare feet into them now and once you feel autumn’s nip, wear with socks or tights. 

Let’s hear it for an unsung hero – fabulous fashionable flats!
