There's a variety of classic shoe styles to wear in the spring and summer, but slingback flats are a top contender. If you're not someone who wants to walk in flimsy flip-flops or dainty strappy sandals, the extra back support on a slingback is probably the option for you. Popularized by Chanel with its iconic cap-toed design, it's the perfect shoe to look chic and still feel comfortable—since some of us may not wear high heels as gracefully as others. The strap gives gentle support to your heel, so you're not blistering with a regular flat or feeling like you have no support with an open-backed shoe.
Since it's a shoe style that's been around for years, it can be tricky to find pairs that meet the lines of comfort and modern design, which is why I did the search for you. Below, you'll find 20 pairs of slingback flats at both affordable and splurge-worthy price points. Trust me, you'll want to wear them all season long (and beyond.)
