Women have appreciated having a comfortable flat shoe in their wardrobes as a staple ever since Audrey Hepburn made the ballet flat chic.
The ballet flat and the women’s loafer are two classic styles which make great comfortable flat shoes for women. Finding one that is truly comfortable is a treasure.
High heels may always hold the number one place in the hearts for some, but at times a comfortable flat is just the simplest girl next door kind of shoe option. With colder weather approaching a pair of simple comfortable flats is the perfect shoe choice, warmer and more practical than sandals . You may wear these as much as your winter boots.
Looking for comfort in shoes has lead women to love sneakers, but we agree most of us can’t get away with them in the office or for more dressy day-to-day occasions. For a sharper image comfortable designer flats which fit well can be very chic. Ballet flats or loafers are a great alternative, comfortable enough to wear all-day but smart enough to team with a suit or chic dress for any occasion. Choose the best for yourself. Look sharp and feel confident.
Made iconic by Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn, the ballet flat is also favored by modern fashion icons such as Alexa Chung and Leandra Medine .
Loafers have been seen less frequently in recent years but the style exploded back on the fashion scene and has recently been seen on the likes of fashionista Olivia Palermo and Sienna Miller.
Both the ballet flat and the loafer are extremely versatile, comfortable flats and can be worn with everything from shorts, jeans and tailored trousers or feminine skirts and dresses.
However, as these styles have grown in popularity the quality of loafers and ballet flats has begun to differ drastically from one shoe brand to another, meaning not all flats are made equal when it comes to comfort.
UKIES flat shoes use quality leathers and materials and use nanoGel technology so you can be comfortable on your feet all day. UKIES flats are the ultimate comfortable flats made with technology and designed specifically for comfort.
Here are three flat styles that are trending right now :
