The comfortable footwear trends continue, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. My favourite heel heights are up to an inch and a half, with the ideal being one inch. I don’t like my flats too flat either, because those lack support and feel too close to the ground. Most of these flats are closed toed, and quite supportive because they have a substantial flat heel and sole. They are ALL made of soft leather and have cushioning footbeds, although some styles are softer than others. Browse through all the colour options because there are many to choose from.
- Franco Sarto Holt: An extremely comfy ankle strap flat with genius back criss-cross strap detailing. The top and bottom straps are attached to each other, which makes the style more stable to walk in because the straps stay put.
- Naturalizer Jazzy: Wow. What a comfy flat despite the peep-toe detailing. The dear little wedge is a supportive delight. It comes in narrow sizes for low volume feet, and wide sizes for extra high volume feet. The floral pattern is super fun, but my heart is with the white.
- Attilio Giusti Leombruni Pointy Toe Ballet Flat: This deliciously comfortable classic is a winner with clients who are on their feet for hours or who travel for work and walk long distances in airports. Buttery heaven on your feet. Works for both low and high volume feet.
- Aquatalia By Marvin K. 'Yoveta' Flat (Women): Stable, versatile and elegant. It's amazing how dressy this shoe looks on the foot despite its sporty integrity.
- Boden Lille Lace-up Point: The criss-cross lace-up flat might become the next "it" shoe, which means that Boden is ahead of the curve. I have not seen this style in person yet, but expect the suede versions to be a little softer than the metallic.
- DOGMA Ballet flats: This style comes in four unique colour combinations. Despite the extra pointy toe, there is room in the toe box. I like the Asian vibe of the embroideries. A well-made and unique shoe.
- Eileen Fisher 'Allot' Flat: A great flat for high volume feet and wider ankles. The elastic insert on the ankle is very forgiving and comfortable. I love this shoe worn with self-colour ankle length pants and jeans.
- Corso Como 'Mystic' Cutout Flat (Women): Strappy yet covered. It's a roomy flat despite its dainty vibe. Modern Retro.
- Jessica Simpson 'Mandalaye' Leather Flat: A strappy flat that looks like a ballet shoe. The snip-toe is a super way to wear an elegant square toe.
- Mephisto 'Baline' Mary Jane Flat: A fashion sneaker that looks more girly than the lace-up styles. Sporty Luxe with a feminine touch.
- Calvin Klein Evonna: These work well on a higher volume foot. They are extremely lightweight, but the leather is not as soft as I would have liked it to be. Still quite comfortable though, but not good for low volume feet.
- Opening Ceremony 'Grunge' Slip-On Platform Sneaker (Women): A platform slip-on sneaker with rave reviews.
- Attilio Giusti Leombruni Cap Toe Smoking Flat: The gushing reviews on this loafer are well worth it. (My clients will attest to that too). Feels like a slipper, but is supportive AND dressy. All colours are fab. A brilliant comfy shoe for the office.
I bought the Franco Sarto Holt flats because they’re the most comfortable version of this style I’ve found after searching all of last season with no luck. I’m a sucker for that ankle strap because I like the pretty effect, and the way it closes the gap when wearing ankle pants.
