Comfortable flats are the urban commuters best friend–easy to slip on and off, you can easily stash them in your bag and change into heels at the office. But I find myself falling into the same trap all the time, believing that ALL flats are comfortable flats. This, my friends, is simply not true.
I bought two pairs of flats last year–one brown and one black. Both pairs together cost me less than $40. This kind of value would be great, if I actually enjoyed wearing either pair of shoes. As it is, I flinch just when looking at them–they’re cheap, have no support to speak of, and end up hurting my feet more than the heels I’m avoiding wearing on the commute. Clearly, I need some new flats, but I can’t afford to break the bank. Here are a few options worth considering, though I may just get these simple classics from the Gap.
Modcloth Sphere and Dear Flat: $45
Jeffrey Campbell Street Flat: $20
Old Navy Open-Toe Flat: $20
Jeffrey Campbell Kayla Quilted Flat: $104
J. Crew Factory Blume Ballet Flat: $79.50
Nine West Belleau Ballet Flat: $79
