Somewhat surprisingly, flats are extremely difficult to shop for. On the one hand, not everyone looks good in ballets; on the other, not everyone likes the look of the loafer, the newest trend in flats. Finding a hybrid of the two that is affordable and available in multiple colors is no easy task, evidenced by the fact it’s taken me nearly two years to endorse one.
These flats have all the details I like (unique wood heel, structured body, available in patent leather and embossed skins), without any that I don’t (buckles, bows, rubber soles). Buy them in black patent for everyday, snakeskin for edge, and pink patent for fabulous.
