My search for the perfect, all purpose, walking friendly flats (ie can take at least 2 miles of NYC walking without discomfort) has proved elusive (other than Toms). I’ve ended up doctoring up more pairs of shoes than I can count. Such a high price we women pay for beauty [and thank God for moleskin]!
I’ve found two pairs of flats at opposite ends of the price and fashion spectrum that I’m in love with. I even biked around Long Island yesterday in a pair with no problems.
That’s right. New Balance makes flats. Its like walking around in your running shoes all day. I’ve actually gotten tons of compliments on my “cute flats.” You can hardly tell their made by a running shoe company.
I took a bike tour in these bad boys around vineyards in Long Island with no problems (about 13 miles or so).
I like them so much I might get another pair as I think they will be great for the hospital and running errands around NYC.
Reasonable price point. Comfortable, stylish shoes. I’d run to grab some if I were you.
So, these beauties are expensive. I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit on the internet how much I paid for these shoes.
HOWEVER, I absolutely think that these shoes are worth the money if you work in a professional setting and are in the market for nice shoes. They are comfortable and durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of NYC walking (or whatever city you live in), but boast a clean, polished, and professional finish.
For those of you who can wear heels every day, I commend you. For you fellow flat wearers, check out these if you need some new shoes.

Until next time…
