What Would We Do Without Fashionable Flats?
There was a time when street style was synonymous with sky-high heels. Still today, there are always a handful of passersby that opt for height over comfort. But, we just have to come out and say it: We're so damn happy flats can be fashionable now. Whether it's Miu Miu's now-signature punky ballet flat, a steel-grey running shoe, or the simplest of spring sandals, flat shoes are having a moment, and they don't look any less fashion than a stiletto would.

Cathy Horyn, current fashion critic at The Cut (after 15 years at The New York Times), recently said in a piece, "The most modern thing today in fashion is a bit of polish without obvious effort."And, opting for flats over heels is the easiest way to master the look of the times. Paired with a floral dress, a textured skirt, or even just a really good pair of wide-leg pants, flats finish an ensemble without obvious effort, and it sure is good news for our feet.
