    20 Stylish Flats That Won't Pinch Your Feet

    Cute flats that are actually comfortable? Yes I know, I didn't believe it at first either, but we've found them!

    1. A pair of pointy-toe Rothy's flats that'll be the most comfortable pair of shoes you'll ever own... PERIOD!

    Brittaney Trent / BuzzFeed

    I'm totally not a flat person. 1) Because I think they make my feet look long, and 2) they're NEVER comfortable. If you haven't heard of Rothy's you're missing out! These flats TRULY feel as comfortable as sneakers. I have a little over a half of mile walk to the NYC subway from my apartment, and these get me there without any pain. I absolutely have no blisters, sores, or calluses from wearing these all day. And to make it better, all of Rothy's flats are made from recycled water bottles, AND you can just throw them into the washing machine to clean them. I know they're a bit pricey but the quality is there and they're totally worth it. I'll never look at wearing flats the same again!

    Get them from Rothy's for $145 (available in sizes 5–12 and 18 colors).

    2. A stylish pair of bow-tie flat mules, because wearing heels all the time is just not comfortable or practical (even though I would love to).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Finally professional-looking shoes that will work for me! I was getting tired of wearing plain oxfords and heels around the office and wanted something easy and comfortable to wear. This pair of shoes are perfect for the purpose. It's almost like a slipper appropriate for the office. The shoes are very comfortable like slippers and they are sturdy enough for the streets of New York City. It has a really cute design and nice polished black finish to still give off that office lady vibe. I am very happy with the purchase and looking forward to wearing these around the office!" —Kay Lee

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors).

    3. A pair of Steve Madden loafers that'll be ready to wear as soon as you open the box. No worries about having to break them in!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review "I can see why these loafers are getting such rave reviews. They are soft, comfortable, and not to mention they look good. The studs make it playful. If you can snag a pair at this point, do it fast!" —nevillelongbottom

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59 (available in sizes 8–13 and three colors).

    4. A pretty pair of patterned flats with a woven-like material that'll scream spring and summer like no other.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Having left the years of enduring the agonies of heels in my past, I am always eager to find a comfortable flat. The lace on this shoe is attractive and restrained. It looks a good deal more expensive than in fact it is. The lace adds that hint of a special occasion but wears very well for a long day. At a recent wedding, I was able to avoid the pained looks of my daughters that appear when mom is barefoot once again at an event. I even got compliments." —Amelia Gremelspacher
