The Shocking Truth About Flats!

Heels vs Flats

Once upon a time you would’ve never caught me in flats, not even at the Laundromat.  Stilettos carried me from my morning commute, through the workday, and right on past happy hour. Until one day I realized the effort, for me, just wasn’t worth it. The shoes, plus the 15 miles I was running on average each week, were killing my feet. Besides, a well-crafted heel was wasted on my coworkers who considered clothing more of a utilitarian necessity than an expressive art form.

Soon after that realization I began developing my collection of flats. Now, I find myself reaching for a ballerina shoe even on the weekends. The thing is, flat doesn’t mean boring or drab. A flat shoe can look femme, sexy, and confident. Wear a pair with a flowing dress for an instant mood booster. Here are a few options I currently love. Of course, all can be found at local indie boutiques:
