For the past six months, I’ve been on a lookout for the perfect flats.
The ones I wore fell apart after several months of continual use. I go through about 3 pairs a year, because I purchase flats that cost less than $30 and were pretty cheaply made. This time, I want to be smarter about my choices. So, I chose another 3 pairs that should last me another year or two given the increase in investment.
So this is my mini collection of flats that should go with any outfit, casual or otherwise.
- Castañer brown suede flats with purple bows: Yoox.com – $108
- Steve Madden Heaven Round Toe Flat – patent red: DSW.com – $24.95
- ri black patent flats: Ross – $12.99
My favorite pair are the Castañer flats. With a hidden wedge, these shoes add a bit of height and are quite comfortable to wear. I hope these ones last forever because they are so pretty and well-made.
Overall, I spent less than $150 on these 3 pairs of shoes, which is $55.94 more than I spent last year on flats. These shoes are definitely worth the money for an increase in quality and selection. Plus, they should last longer given the thicker sole and the possibility of re-soling the bottom.
