Maybe I'm weird. Every single time I go shoe shopping I instinctively grab heels. I may even tell myself, "It's OK. I'll wear these when the kids are at school and I'm running errands or something" Only to never ever ever put them on again after I've checked out. Years ago I was able to wear my black leather stilettos day in and day out but as my lifestyle has changed, so has my wardrobe.
Heels are sexy.
Heels are pretty.
Heels are fun... but for some periods of our lives, they can be incredibly impractical.
Don't get me wrong, if you are one of those women who can gracefully carry a truck on your back in 6 inch stilletoes I applaud you, but for extra busy days on your feet, nothing can replace a comfortable shoe that looks chic but feels like a memory-foam slipper.
After years of chasing four kids, mom-zombie mornings, running a hands-on business, and my all-around clumsiness, heels have become a part of my life that I reserve for fancy dinners, the occasional runway show, or photo shoots. My life just isn't made for them on a daily basis anymore.
So, in my newfound quest to be comfortable and chic, I've created a new list of flats worthy of your next little black dress occasions, fancy dinner parties, and even office settings.
The best part?
Each one of these crazy-comfortable, incredibly beautiful shoes is under $50.
Dress up a pair of jeans or wear them with a little black dress. These sexy little flats can be swapped out for almost anything you would have worn heels with. No more falling down the stairs after your toddler, twisting an ankle on icy driveways, or doing the "pre-teen trudge" at the end of the day when your feet are killing you.
