I Used to Hate Flats, But These 25 Pairs Just Seriously Changed My Mind

I'll cut right to the chase: I've pretty much have hated flats my whole life. I find them uncomfortable, unflattering, and irrelevant— that is until recently. Heels and boots of all shapes and sizes are my go-to's, but now that I've taken a more casual approach to dressing (and considering I wore sweatpants and leggings for nearly a year straight), flats are feeling like the most seamless footwear upgrade I could make in my wardrobe. As I started paying attention to the shoe style I once loathed, I realized they actually weren't so bad. In fact, they were actually quite amazing, and just like that, I was converted. 

Below, you'll see the list of 25 cute flats that made me change my mind about my very harsh disdain for them. From retro black and white loafers to one too many pairs with built-in anklets, you're in for a real shopping treat whether you're already flats-obsessed or not.  

As a former ballerina, these really speak to me. 

To be honest, every pair of shoes at Shop-Pêche has me over the moon. 

Somehow, this simple shape feels so fancy. 

You'll need these in every color. 

My personal solution to the horrid blisters I tend to get from loafers. 

My bubblegum-pink obsession will never subside. 

My summer dresses need these shoes in their life. 

House slippers I will very much be wearing outside. 

Reformation's new shoe drop is simply beyond. 

All these little details are making me smile. 

Anklets are a go-to for me come summer, and this pair of flats makes incorporating them into my look seamlessly.   

I plan on wearing these with baggy jeans and a tiny tee this summer. 

These just put about five different vacations on my radar. 

These are quirky and a tad obnoxious just like me. 

Couldn't write a story about flats without adding in these iconic Malonos. 

These remind me of my private-school days (in the best way). 

Business in the front, party in the back. 

I have a serious weakness when it comes to cow-print shoes.
