Anyone who does their fair share of walking knows that when it comes to shoes, comfort reigns over everything else—especially when you’re planning to invest in a quality pair. Sure, you could have the most stylish It-girl shoes on the planet, but what does that all come down to when you’re left with throbbing pain? And while you could forgo the height of sky-high heels, if you don’t have flats with arch support, you’re left in same predicament.
Given the nature of flat shoes—whether they’re minimalist sandals, brogues, or anything in between—there usually isn’t much support or padding for your soles. Or when you do find something with support, they’re not quite as chic as you would like them to be. Don't fret, because we’ve got you covered. With an ample amount of research (and customer reviews from different retailers to help), we’ve found flat shoes you can walk miles in—and they're stylish, too. Scroll down to see (and shop) them all below. Your feet will thank you later.

Standout review: "I’ve heard so many great things about Everlane, particularly their shoes. My heels have been wrecked so many times from new shoes no matter what I try. These are the first pair in a long time that fit me comfortably around the heel from the very start. I will be buying all of my shoes from here now on!"—Bstratch1
Standout review: "These flats are like butter on your feet, so soft & so comfy. I wish they came in more colors (cognac or grey). Of course, black was the pair I purchased, who doesn’t need a or of soft black ballets. If you are on the fence, text your Nordys stylist & try these, they will be at the front of your closet!"—Shoezzz
