Flats are my life.
I don’t think I’ve worn heels in about five years. And I really don’t miss them.
Working in a school mean I’m running around all day long. The only days I don’t move as much is when everyone seems to come to me as opposed to me chasing all the people I need (this does not happen often). I don’t have time for heels or shoes that hurt.
I also had surgery on both of my feet a few years ago; or rather on both of my big toes; which can make wearing heels hurt because of all the pressure put on your toes in heels. Of course, I’m also fairly certain the surgery wasn’t done 100% properly, which is why heels hurt…but…that’s a different story for a different day.
Basically, I need shoes that are comfortable; that I can easily wear to work and even to help dress up a little on weekends if the need is there. I have tried a lot of flats over the years; some hurt, some fell apart really quickly (because I wear flats at least 5 days a week, so they need to last), some did that whole rubbing on the ankle thing, which is super annoying.
BUT! I have found my holy grail flat.
The best part? They’re under $20.
I’m not kidding.
Second best part?
