8 Cute Flats You’ll Actually Want To Wear
The grueling process of choosing an outfit every morning always presents one very important question: heels or flats? The shoes you pick out can make or break your outfit, and even your day if you don't choose wisely. We've all had our fair share of blisters from not wearing comfortable shoes. But, whether it's in the workplace or on a night out with friends, many women turn to heels over flats, despite their obnoxious levels of discomfort and the increased risk of falling over. Heels put the "beauty is pain" mantra to work, but it's hard to find flats that actually look cute and not like something your mom would pick out (sorry, Mom). However, they do exist! To help save your feet from further blisters and sporadic muscle spasms brought on by high heels, we rounded up eight stylish, comfortable flats that you can actually see yourself wearing. Do yourself a favor and save the heels for a special occasion. Steve Madden: This shoe brand is a powerhouse for trendy, affordable, and comfortable shoes all-in-one. For the workplace, the loafer/ballet flat hybrid shoe has taken over, and your feet will look more professional than ever—but in a cute way. The pointed style gives this shoe a more sophisticated feel and creates a slimming effect. The style is also called "Feather" for a reason—they're extremely light and comfortable, so no more blisters on your radar. Choose between suede, leather, and velvet in an assortment of colors. [caption id="attachment_611174" align="aligncenter" width="196"] Steve Madden Feather ($69.95)[/caption] We're also loving this Steve Madden edgy/feminine flat combo. The pink exudes strong girly vibes, but the studded embellishments on the straps keep the shoes in check. Not to mention, the crossover straps alone are absolutely to die for! Normal ballet flats can get really boring really quickly, so any shoe lover will be able to get behind the unique touches on this pair. If the pink still isn't your style, you can also get this shoe in black. [caption id="attachment_611173" align="aligncenter" width="196"] Steve Madden Mollie ($69.95)[/caption] J. Crew: J. Crew has a wide assortment of trendy kicks with preppy, classic roots, so it's no surprise they made the list. Even though their shoes tend to run on the pricier side, you know that you're investing in a comfortable, durable pair. These flats are made in Italy, so you have even more of a guarantee that they won't conk out on you after just a few wears. Plus, splurging on shoes is totally acceptable as long as you get a lot of use out of them, which you definitely can with this vibrant pair of flats. Even with such a simple style, the metallic pattern makes a huge statement and adds instant pizazz to even the most drab outfits. You'll be getting compliments left and right whenever you wear these. [caption id="attachment_611171" align="aligncenter" width="196"] J. Crew Lea Ballet Flats In Metallic Leather ($118)[/caption] Banana Republic: BR is another great hotspot for shoes, and we're obsessing over the chic variations on this pair of flats. You get a sleek pointed toe, straps with three bows, and they're made from an ever-popular material—suede. Sound too good to be true? Just wait, there's even more. These flats have an exclusive Padding System that uses memory foam and a cushioned insole. Breaking in new shoes has never sounded more comfortable. [caption id="attachment_611172" align="aligncenter" width="196"] Banana Republic Triple-Bow Flat ($108)[/caption] DSW: Something as simple as a scalloped border can easily elevate any shoe. With six colors to choose from, you can't go wrong with this staple ballet flat. Put your best foot forward while wearing these to the office, date night, and everywhere in between. And, at a price like this, it might be in your best interest to stock up on multiple colors for different seasons. Just saying! [caption id="attachment_611168" align="aligncenter" width="196"] DSW Audrey Brooke Winny Ballet Flat ($49.95)[/caption] Old Navy: Check out another gold take on plain old ballet flats. Based off looks alone, you would never be able to tell these shoes cost less than $20! This pair also comes in black, but gold is just so much more fun. You can dress up your look even more by wearing matching gold accessories. [caption id="attachment_611169" align="aligncenter" width="196"] Old Navy Pointy Ballet Flats For Women ($19.97)[/caption] Target: These shoes also look like something from a designer or high-end retailer. But, even better, they're actually from Target! The side cut-outs and structured front and back pieces give these slipper-like shoes a fashion-forward appeal. Pair these with jeans or a dress for the ultimate polished look. [caption id="attachment_611167" align="aligncenter" width="196"] Women's Kelsey d'Orsay Pointed Toe Ballet Flats ($16.08)[/caption] [Photo: Shutterstock]

Don’t Miss Out On Summer’s Prettiest Trend: Lace-Up Flats
J.Crew Changed The Cece Ballet Flat & Customers Are Not Happy About It
J.Crew made a huge mistake and customers aren't taking it lightly. Before 2014, the preppy retailer was at the top of its game, producing women's clothing in bright colors with flattering silhouettes, and focusing on keeping the shoppers happy. Fast forward a year or so later, and J.Crew seems to have lost its magic touch. Gone are the timeless designs and, most importantly, the must-have ballet flat: Cece. J.Crew not only muddled with its classic women's clothing, but also the acclaimed, customer favorite Cece ballet flat. Cece flats were made in Italy with buttery soft leather, and customers absolutely swore by them. However, after being discontinued in 2014 and then brought back, the ballet flats are now made in America and aren't as good of quality. One customer review noted, "These aren't the same as the old (pre-2014) Cece flats. The leather is lower quality: not as buttery soft as before and stretches out too easily." J.Crew's CEO Mickey Drexler acknowledged the company's "missteps" in women's fashion. He says, "An iPhone looks like an iPhone. And I don’t think J.Crew women’s looked like J.Crew women’s as much as it could have, nor do I think that we marketed it and messaged it as well as we could have.” J.Crew noted the style problems and its design team is already hard at work "bringing back more color and refocusing on cool, classic clothes." Hopefully they bring back the old Cece, too! Don't miss 11 celebs in great shape on the cover of fitness magazines and order this Beyoncé-designed shirt to support kids in Haiti! [Photo: Flickr]

HACK: How To Break In Your Flats Without Getting Blisters
The feeling of buying a new pair of shoes is delightful. The feeling that comes with breaking them in? Not so delightful. But it turns out that you don't actually have to wear flats to break them in--we found a hack for doing it that is completely blister-free. All you need is a pair of socks and a hairdryer: First step is to put on socks - any kind will do, sport or dress - then step in to the new flats. Walk across the room to determine where the shoe is most uncomfortable/tight on your foot. Those will be your target points for the hairdryer. Turn your hairdryer on a low heat and aim it on the target points. Apply the heat for a few seconds at a time and then move on to the next spot. Another tip is to apply the heat to the inside of your flats, then slip them on and apply heat to the outside while wiggling your toes. Each step contributes to stretching the shoe out to fit your exact foot shape. Once you your flats start to feel comfortable, turn off the hairdryer, take off your socks, and give your broken-in flats a try. If they still need just a bit more stretch, repeat the process again.

Your Shoe Collection Isn’t Ready For Spring Without A Pair Of Slingback Flats
No matter how much we all love high heels (or so we say), there's one thing we can all agree on: they are EXHAUSTING. They look great, but by the end of the day and/or night, you're practically limping home, or, if you're me, you've shamelessly removed them and find yourself walking home barefoot on some sort of surface of questionable cleanliness. The smarter ones among us always carry an extra pair of fold-up walking shoes in our purses, but you know what? It's just not necessary. These slingback flats are the perfect compromise between style and comfort. If you're looking for your go-to pair of spring shoes, than you might as well just end your search here. Click through our slideshow for some of the season's cutest slingback flats.

Laser-Cut Shoes Are The Only Way Your Feet Are Going To Survive This Summer
For some shoppers, an embellished shoe can sometimes be too much. Even a striped pattern might be considered loud. But with this new style, even the most conservative shoe lover will be a fan. This season, pretty much every type of footwear comes in a laser-cut design. Heels, flats, sandals and even sneakers in solid colors with cool geometric designs, like squares and scallops, are all over the place. We love the peep-toe bootie style, which can easily elevate your favorite LBD. Or wear brightly colored socks underneath your cut-out shoes for an interesting contrast. Check out our slideshow for all sorts of laser-cut details on every type of shoe you need for spring.

You’ll Def Want To Wear These Flats All Winter Long #Adorbs
It's pretty tough to make flats look different since there's not that much material to work with. But adding graphics or animals just takes them to a whole new level. And some of them are just down right adorable. Who wouldn't want to rock a bulldog on your feet or show off the mustache trend with some graphic smoking slippers? If you have a favorite picture, or a weird obsession with hippos or something, we can almost guarantee that you can find it on a flat. And we can also guarantee that it won't be ugly either. Let's be honest, it's pretty hard to screw up a flat anyway. And designers are even jumping on the bandwagon with cute flats too. Alice + Olivia made a pair, and Marc Jacobs has a whole slew to choose from. We know that your flats need an update, so here are 15 different ones for you to pick.

Metallic Flats: The Easier-To-Pull-Off, Less Trippy Version Of The Hologram Trend
Last season's hologram trend proved to be more of a fad diet than a lifestyle change, and the trippy, psychedelic prints are already pretty much over (sorry if you "invested" in a pair of Stella McCartney's!!). Here's the much cooler and quieter cousin of the trend that is taking its place: metallic flats! Gold and silver loafers, drivers, slippers and even sneakers are showing up on the streets, in your favorite catalogs (looking at you J.Crew!) and on the runways of Chloe, Dries van Noten and Giambattista Valli. And now, it's your turn. Check out these 11 brogues, loafers and booties to get your fill of the metallic trend. [Photo: Peace Love Shea]
Toes Not Sandal-Ready? Make Perforated Flats Your Go-To Spring Shoe
Been a while since your last pedicure? We can't blame you--our own toes have been hiding snugly in socks and boots for the last seven months, too. But fret not because while you get ready for sandal season, we've got the perfect transitional shoe for you. Perforated flats not only let your feet breathe on warm days, but they also cleverly hide your less-than-red-carpet-ready toes. This spring, brands like Manolo Blahnik, Matt Bernson and Sigerson Morrison are all making perforated flats in seasonally-appropriate bright colors with fun details such as suede piping, studded toes and patterned accents. We can't wait to wear this fun shoe well into summer with denim cutoffs, colored skinny jeans and flirty spring dresses. Shop our favorite perforated flats in the slideshow. Plus, check out other shoe trends we're obsessing over: lace up sandals, open-toe booties, and jellies (yes, really).
It’s Official: Jenni Kayne Created A Bonafide Craze With Her D’Orsay Flats
Thanks to Jenni Kayne, D'Orsay shoes are huge this spring. We know you've seen them. Everyone from Jessica Alba to Emma Roberts owns a pair of the pointy toe flat shoes with the sides missing. D'Orsay shoes had been gone for years, but thanks to Jenni Kayne's stroke of genius they're back in a big way. This spring a whole host of designers are following Jenni Kayne's lead with their own versions of D'Orsay shoes. We're talking Vince, Alice & Olivia, Rachel Comey, Jeffrey Campbell, Stuart Weitzman, Corso Como and more! If ever there was a time to test out the cutout shoe trend, this is it. Shop our favorite D'Orsay shoes--both heels and flats-- in the slideshow below. Browse more shoe trends we're digging: rose gold sandals, ikat-print flats, and Charlotte Olympia zodiac shoes!

Can’t Decide Between Tie-Dye & Tribal? Get The Best Of Both With These Ikat Shoes
We are huge fans of tie-dye and tribal prints for summer. But if you are looking for a trend that's not so over done, give ikat print a try. We love the print on handbags (like these new totes by Stella & Dot), but one of our new favorite trends is ikat patterned shoes. The print is a grown-up version of tie-dye and the patterns range from subtle to super-colorful, so there's a design for everyone. From ballet flats to espadrilles to wedges, there's a variety of cute styles and prints of ikat shoes. We are convinced these are the perfect casual shoes for spring and summer. Click through the slideshow to shop some of our favorite designs. [Photo: The Average Girl's Guide] For more spring trends, check out neon jewelry, metallic jeans and silk shorts.
Flash Some Skin–No Abs Workout Required–In Cutout Flats This Spring
Last season, we saw strategic cutouts all over fall clothing--from slivers on shoulders to discreetly baring torso side slits. This season? We're losing sections of our shoes! It all began with Jenni Kayne's doft-copied 'Orsay flats and from there designers like Marc Jacobs, Alice & Olivia, and Alexander Wang have all embraced cutout loafers and flats. So much so, in fact, that it's shaping up to be a less shoe season. But unlike cutout clothing, cutout flats don't require a full workout routine to get everything right and tight. Just make sure your toes are polished and your feet are tanned and you're good to go. Shop our favorite cutout flats in the slideshow.

Taylor Swift Dresses Like A School Girl (Teenage Boyfriends Will Do That)
While toting her Starbucks around London, music-superstar Taylor Swift wore an outfit that reminds us of her teenage status in kitty flats and a collared tee. We think dating American royalty, (Robert F. Kennedy's grandson Conor) may be influencing her preppy and oh-so-cute style. With an adorable mock collar jumper (how British of her) and a pair of Charlotte Olympia Cat-Face velvet skimmers ($695), Taylor looks every part the southern, blond girl running about town. She wears a French Connection Gina Geelong Peter Jumper ($128) paired with AG Adriano Goldschmied Ankle Legging ($168) and carries all her London goodies in a Mark Cross Scottie Large Satchel ($2,350). Shop her entire outfit and watch the school boys come running! [Photo: Splash News] Looking for more Taylor Swift style?

TOMS’ Higher-Priced Line Quietly Launched: Let’s See What $140 Gets You…
A few months ago the blogs were a-flutter with news of TOMS' plans to launch a higher-priced line, called TOMS+, but it turns out the luxe 12-piece collection quietly launched this morning without so much as a whimper. Weird. Anyway, after the brand's successful collaboration with The Row, we knew the folks over at TOMS had a hint of luxe in them. While some of the shoes are exactly what you'd expect from the original "buy a pair, give a pair to someone in need" company -- canvas slip-ons with pleated cap toes -- other designs take on a whole new silhouette. The Cobalt Montage Strappy Wedges just might be the be-all-end-all summer-to-fall transition wedge, and the Denim Slip-Ons could replace your ratty loafers as your wear-with-anything flat. As expected, prices range from $104 to $140. Though WWD originally reported that TOMS+ would be available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and American Rag, it looks like each retailer only picked up a few styles. We've rounded them all up in the slideshow above. Looking to build your shoe closet?

These Hunter Rain Flats Look Suspiciously Similar To These Marc Jacobs Ballet Flats
From left: the Hunter flats ($98) and the Marc by Marc Jacobs flats ($158.94, down from $195) Hunter (the infamous rain boot company) came out with a line of water-resistant ballet flats that look eerily similar to these Marc by Marc Jacobs flats (right). But let's address matters one at a time: Hunter makes ballet flat rain shoes?! When did this happen? Well, we must have been living under a rock, because apparently they've also come out with really adorable Hunter Boat Shoes, too. But onto the next point, their waterproof ballet flats look strikingly similar to these Marc by Marc Jacobs flats, which happen to be on sale here at Endless.com (Get 'em while they're hot, though---a little birdie tells us there are only 2 left in stock). But copycats aside, both shoes are well under $200, so why not just buy both and use them interchangeably pending the weather forecast? Shop these, and two other styles of Hunter flats right here at Bloomingdale's.
