Every woman, from Los Angeles to Tokyo and back, can surely agree that there must always be a pair of flat shoes in their shoe closet. No matter what the occasion may be, a pair of flats will always have a special place in a woman’s heart. Ideal footwear for warmer weather, these babies are an absolute favorite of every girl and woman.
A pair of flats can cost as little as twenty-five dollars to as much as a couple hundred dollars. Depending on the style and the brand of the shoe, you can mix it and match with whatever outfit that you have in mind. Women choose flat shoes as their preferred style of footwear because they are so easy to pair and style.
Now that we are done with the style portion for flat shoes, we move on to durability and comfort.
The Standing Shoes Guide aims not only to let you know which footwear designs are in style now. Rather, we go at it with a more practical approach. By that, we mean that we do not just look at the style, we also consider the price, comfort, and durability of the shoe to give you the best flat shoes for women.
Here, we will tell you which shoes will give you the best value for your money. Among these factors will include the durability of the sole (make no mistake ladies, rubber soles are definitely more durable than others), whether or not the material of the flat shoe is waterproof (because hey, you never know when it rains), as well as the ability of the shoe to resist wear and tear (let’s face it, flats are insanely comfortable. And if it were up to us, we would wear them every day, right?)
We will go through brand after brand and we will give you our humble opinion on what shoes we think are best for you.
