I watch as their eyes gaze down to the ground. I can tell that they are staring at my shoes. I already know the question they are going to ask: “Leah, are you wearing FLATS today?”
I fix my mouth to smile sweetly, and prepare to give them a confusing answer: “Yes, maybe,” I say. Their perplexed face follows my response.
A woman who loves heels can still be stylish in a pair of flats, right?
Flats are part of my shoe collection. In comparison to heels, my flats lose by a longshot. But, there are those times when flats are necessary.
1)Changing into cuter shoes – cute flats are the prelude to the cute heels that you are about to wear. Or, in my writing vernacular, flats foreshadow heels. Personally, certain heels I have do not touch the ground (concrete/gravel) to avoid getting scuffed or more importantly to avoid me falling and breaking my neck. Therefore, I wear my flats and then change when I reach my destination.
2) Still looking stylish while resting your feet – Let’s face it ladies, no matter how much we try to walk through the pain- HEELS HURT!!! and sometimes, it’s beneficial to give your feet a rest and change into a pair of flats. No shame, no need to be embarrassed. Better to wear flats than to limp around in a pair of heels that are obviously murdering your feet after a long day of wear.
Are flats part of your shoe collection? And, I think I’m going to consider purchasing a pair of Coach flats. Any suggestions on the style or color?
