I Read a Ton of Reviews to Find Comfortable Flats—These 26 Styles Are Best

When you think of a “comfortable shoe choice,” flats undoubtedly come to mind. But as many of us probably can speak to from experience, not all flats are actually comfortable. No, they may not have the same type of discomfort as sky-high heels, but many seemingly comfy silhouettes can still pinch, cause blisters, and the like. That said, there are a range of chic styles out there that will give your feet a break.

To highlight said flats, we went straight to the review sections of some of our go-to shops to uncover the styles fellow customers say are truly comfortable with over four stars and above. Intrigued? Keep scrolling to check out a range of flats, including loafers, ballet flats, sandals, and so on. You’ll also see an actual customer testimonial for each to highlight the flats even more.

"Just got these today and they are so fun and comfy. I normally size up .5 in Sam Edelman sandals but I took the advice of reviewers and ordered my usual size and they fit perfectly." — missinthebeach

"Love these! They look expensive and the edges don’t dig into your feet (I have wider feet and sometimes have that problem). They are obviously very flat without any support but for the price, they look awesome." — H&M Reviewer

 

"Very comfortable and true to size. Looks very good in person." — Kassidy

"Cute and comfortable. Very basic sandals, seem to be constructed well. I usually fit 6.5-7 in shoes and the 6.5 fit well if not a tad small." — RMR121

"They are perfect for summer nice and comfortable.Great with any outfit. Highly recommended Thank you Nordstrom." — Dautovic

"Easy to wear and comfortable flats. If you're between sizes, I would recommend sizing up. I have narrow feet and these worked really well for me." — AshleyLTD

 

"I love these sandals. I have received more compliments on these shoes and people are always excited to hear they can find them on Amazon. These are very comfortable. After reading the reviews I did size 1/2 a size up and they fit perfectly. If you want cute, comfy, well-priced sandals this summer...grab a pair of these. You won’t be sorry." — Jill K

"Comfortable, edgy, office to night out mules. Ordered a half size up and the fit is perfect. Can’t wait to wear these babies outside of my house!" — Yeahnoforsure

"This sandal is so comfortable! An easy shoe to pair with nearly everything. Size up. I wear a size 9, so 40 is the way to go." — LoveShopbop35

"These shoes are so versatile and go with so many outfits. They are very cute and the tan color is beautiful. Upon trying them on, I thought the sole was a bit stiff, but after wearing them for the first time they broke in after the first wear and are quite comfortable actually. They are 100% true to size. There is a light padded sole as well." — Beach Mama

"Great quality material and comfortable." — BeverlyFerguson

Loafers

"Love these Brixton Loafers! So sleek and stylish. Much better on and in person. But most of all so comfortable. I didn't size up, typically 7.5/37.5, and high-end designer 8/38 (CL, Manolo etc) but ended up getting these in a 7/37. They are a bit snug but not to the point where they are uncomfortable. The sales rep assured me that these will stretch and that if I went 1/2 size up they may end up being too big as the leather is very buttery soft and on the thinner side. If you are unsure just do it! It's a classic style that will be a staple in my wardrobe for years to come." — NSKB

"Versatile and comfortable. I love these flats — they're perfect to wear to the office and anywhere else. True-to-size but they do need a little bit of breaking-in to loosen up in the heel, but that's pretty normal - the soft leather should relax in no time. I'm happy I purchased these! Definitely recommend." — rhirhirhi

"The color is like love — a red valentine heart. And then I touched them-butter! And then I slipped them on and felt like I was walking on a cloud!" — GiddieLyd

 

"Actually so comfortable. A little padded on the inside." — Brittnaynay

"This is my second purchase of these because I wore the first pair to pieces. They are so comfortable, and I'm thinking about buying yet another pair in case these get discontinued!" — H&M Reviewer

"This shoe is true to size, I normally wear a size 8.5 and it’s what I bought, this shoe is super comfortable, and very stylish, I have rather wide feet, but this shoe didn’t hurt my wide feet at all (I didn’t need to order to wide length), it is my favorite flat, I have ordered several colors, loving this shoe." — JazminH

"These are a show stopper. Compliments and comfortable. A gorgeous addition to a casual outfit or business savvy day." — SavvyShopper0585

Ballet and Classic Flats

"Purchased in the sand color and just lovely. I ordered a half size up based on other reviews and fits perfect. Comfortable shoe. Great for summer." — Rockie99

"This is my 4th pair of Margaux shoes! I love the point and ballet style shoes. They are stylish and very comfortable. They are also very nice quality. I get the wide width in my size and they fit perfectly." — Christina Ss
