Pointed flats give comfort and style
When searching for shoes that are both stylish and comfortable it may seem hard to find your perfect fit. And if you don’t own a nifty shoe stretcher, some shoes may even be downright unbearable to wear for long periods.
Thankfully, we do have ballet flats as a sophisticated yet casual option for those days when heels just can’t fit into that busy schedule. But if you’ve grown tired of the dainty and feminine look of ballet flats, it’s time to meet their edgy older sister – pointed flats.
Pointed flats have the casual feel of ballet flats, but the pointed toe of your highest heels. This hybrid creates a shoe that can be worn all day (and night) but doesn’t force you to sacrifice your trendy style. With pointed flats, the idea is to dress up, but still be comfortable.
For a day of running errands or heading to class just throw on some distressed boyfriend denim, a graphic tee shirt, your favorite cardigan and a boldly colored pair of pointed flats. Your look is casual enough for the day’s tasks, but still looks put together.
On a night out on the town with girlfriends or your favorite guy, slip into a silky black mini skirt, a lace camisole and some shimmery metallic pointed flats. To offset all the feminine aesthetics, you can even add a boyfriend blazer to complete the look. And best of all? Ditching the heels for a night out means all that endless bar hopping until the wee early hours won’t be killer on your feet.
And, for even more comfort, there are pointed flats with slingback heels to give you the look of fancy flats but the feel of a summer sandal. Honestly, is there anything more you could ask for in a shoe?
