Fine, maybe hate is a strong word, so let's just say that flats are not really my thing—for several reasons. Firstly, there's the fact that, at 5"2', I'm more drawn to shoes that give me a bit of height (even if it's just an inch or two). I also just like the look of heels and what they do in terms of dressing up and adding polish to an outfit. Plus, I've simply collected so many mules, kitten heels, heeled sandals, and boots that there's really no turning back now. However, there are always exceptions.
With that in mind, I recently took it upon myself to scour the internet for actually stylish flats that I would hypothetically wear, were I willing to trade in my many other go-to shoes. Much to my own surprise, I found more worthy contenders than I ever would have imagined—25 pairs to be exact. While I'm still deciding which to opt for myself, if you happen to be in the market for flats, just keep scrolling to see and shop all the pairs I loved.
