Comfort is always in style, so it’s no wonder flat shoes come back on runways every season. There’s nothing like the ease of moving around in footwear that supports all your whereabouts. Back when I used to commute to the office every day, a pair of embellished mules or low slingback pumps were my go-to. Even now that I’m home 90 percent of the time, slippers are the only things I find myself lounging in.
All this to say: flats aren’t going anywhere in 2021, and it’s only right. Designers continue to get creative and produce fresh iterations that make for modern silhouettes. To simplify search, I’ve curated 21 styles you’ll be happy you invested in. Meet your new friends.
