With summer slowly coming to an end (it’s still really hot, but it is coming to an end), it’s time to start thinking about shoes. (Do I really need an excuse?) Summer slides are fun, but when the weather starts to get even a little bit cooler, it’s not nearly as comfortable to slip bare feet into sandals.
One of the styles that’s been very popular for the last few years are flats of various kinds, from ballet flats to more athletic-looking flat shoes. These flats combine comfort (no painful high heels) with style, so you look awesome even while you’re staying comfortably on the ground.
One fun athletic-looking flat that would still work for the office is this lycra slip-on. The rugged soles with cool details make this a super-trendy shoe. Wear with skirts, pants, or jeans.
Here are some great microsuede ballet flats with a quilted toe. These work great with trousers or jeans and come in four fun colors. These woven ballet flats are more subtle, but the woven leather texture adds some exciting detail.
And finally, for pairing with jeans, casual skirts, or leggings, these casual Mary Janes. Sporty and fun, they are a great, comfy weekend shoe—a bit like sneakers, but infinitely more stylish.
