Fashion 101: Five Super Comfortable Ballet Flats To Avoid The Ugly Comfortable Shoe Trap

I posted this photo yesterday on my Facebook page of a shoe in the window of a store in Soho and was positively mortified when people copped to liking these shoes. Said retailer is a purveyor of shoes that are popular with tiny children and a specific redheaded chef. You know the one. People, this is a crime against humanity. There is no reason to live in ugly footwear because of some belief that there are shoes that aren’t as comfortable. Just say NO!

In order to prove my point, I have provided five examples below of some beautiful REAL ballet flats that are just as comfortable as those rubber shoes that are – say it with me – fashionable and cost-effective. Please do get involved…

American Eagle Audrey Jersey Knot Ballet Flat – a simple pair of black flats you can wear to death that will not carve your feet to pieces and they’ll protect your feet. I wear these almost every day.

Aerosoles Bectify Ballet FlatsA gorgeous neutral that has infinite possibilities for both dress and casual occasions that will look good on all skin tones.

Naturalizer Stella Patent Leather Ballet Flats – They come in multiple hues, including black, teal and this gorgeous pink. They’re super chic and perfect for almost every occasion.

Yosi Samra Leopard Elastic Top Line Ballet Flats – First of all, leopard is a neutral that adds an instant chic quotient to any outfit. They’re cute, they’re comfortable and they’re glamorous.

Steve Madden “Kinnetic” Metallic Ballet Flats – They’re gorgeous, can take you from day to night and will make your legs look like a million dollars.

Please, PLEASE put the plastic shoes down. Ballet flats are your friend. Get to know them. They will love you forever.

    I am wearing the AE Knot Flats right now! They were stupid cheap ($15) and are so soft – I don’t have any cutouts on my feet from the shoes being too tight. I’m def going to go get another pair as backup.

    I loved these flats! (AE jersey knot). They were so soft and very comfortable. My dog chewed on one and ever since then I haven’t been able to find them again. 🙁 I’ve looked everywhere too. Let me know if you have found these anywhere.
