Believe it or not, comfortable flat shoes are not easy to find. They have to be comfy. They must look good. It’s hard, I know, but I’ve got you covered.
I planned on writing this blog post for a while. Just because I’m sure if we passed on the street, we wouldn’t be wearing heels. Right? Social convention somehow taught us that they are reserved for special occasions. It’s true that not many people like dressing up for no specific reason. Only the Lady Gagas of the world.
Now back to the point. Imagine my surprise when the research *literally* took me over 4 hours. Contrary to popular opinion, not all flat shoes are comfortable. And not all comfortable flat shoes look like ones you actually want to own. The final selection contains only pieces that are cute, classy, and most importantly, won’t give you blisters. From comfortable flat shoes for work to comfortable flat shoes for weddings, it’s all below.
COMFORTABLE FLAT SHOES WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE AND THESE ARE YOUR HEROES:
1. VEJA Campo Sneakers
VEJA is an ethical shoe brand, so starting with a positively conscious pair felt like the right thing to do. Plus, sneakers are the most comfortable flat shoes, and this is not open to discussion.
You can wear this all-white perfection with a trench to the office, or with fancy pants and a crop top for more formal occasions. Reese Witherspoon and Emily Ratajkowski are big fans! So are Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. Treat yourself to some royal-approved shopping. You know you deserve it.
2. Classy VANS
Even if you have made your first steps in heels, you know that when it comes to street style comfort, VANS are the real deal. Featuring their signature waffle outsole, this black and white pair is something you should consider buying.
Here are three reasons to do so. They are comfortable, easy for matching (Think white t-shirt and black jeans. How unpredictable?) and their price is so good you won’t even notice the money coming out of your bank account.
3. Reformation Loafer Mules
I would totally understand if you saw this photo, got scared, and felt the urge to close the tab. DON’T. Loafer mules might not be your go-to choice when it comes to shoe shopping, I get it. But keep an open mind for a sec.
Offered in three different colors and patterns, this model from Reformation is a perfect choice for those spring days when you are ready to take the sandals for a walk outside, but the weather is obviously laughing at you. The moc-stitching on the top is a beauty in itself.
4. Birkenstock Vegan Sandals
As much as I enjoy Birkenstock’s pieces, I have to admit at first I was quite startled by the hype. Tell me I’m not the only one. I mean, they are obviously not the most glamorous choice in the world, and it seems like everyone is wearing them, but there’s a reason.
They are the ultimate comfortable flat shoes for women, who occasionally enjoy a sunny vacation far away from reality. My eyes fixed on this piece from the S/S 2022 collection. The color-coordinated buckles are just adorable, are they not?
5. Alohas 90s Inspired Slipper Sandal
While Selena Gomez has already advised us to kill with kindness, I suggest you do it with effortless style. All you need? The Marshmallow Scacchi Stone Beige Ivory Sandals from Alohas.
Their maxi double layered sole sets the mood back to the 90s. Which is great, because that was the era dominated thoroughly by fashion and supermodels. Turn into one for any upcoming activities with beige linen pants and a white shirt. Don’t leave the kindness at home though.
6. Birkenstock Tong Sandals
To add to our flat shoe collection, another Birkenstock model for your personal consideration. Made from lightweight and waterproof materials, the Tong Sandals are the perfect choice for when you go to the pool or, better, the beach.
It’s the most unpretentious, and at the same time conscious choice, you could make. At least when it comes to comfortable flat sandals. Carrie Bradshaw may not wear them, but she’d be proud. I would be too.
7. Birkenstock Madrid Sandals
The Madrid Sandals are Birkenstock’s oldest model and a true fashion classic. FYI, nowadays, classic means something that will never go out of style AND something you could wear with literally everything.
They are a simple yet stylish pick you will not regret making for your next date night. Bonus points for the ergonomic footbed and the durable and easy-to-clean synthetic materials. Extra bonus points if the date is in, you know, Madrid.
8. ARKET Flatform Suede Slides
Repeat after me. Beige. Is. Not. Reserved. For. Fall. Season. Only. Actually, it never was. In case you don’t agree, let me show you ARKET’s Chunky Flatform Slides.
Made from vegetable and synthetic extracts, they are comfortable, secure, and easy to put on when you run to the front door to get that third Amazon order of the week. If you don’t trust me, trust Gigi Hadid. Pair with your nicest casual dress for your next trip to the grocery store.

9. Dear Frances Vegan Slides
Looking for comfortable flat shoes to wear with dresses? Check these! Dear Frances’ Vegan Slides are made by hand in Italy. The team uses eco-vegan apple leather, which is great for the planet and great for you when you treasure something fancy, but can’t really walk in heels.
Put on a linen dress, grab a wide-brimmed hat, throw on a long necklace (really trendy at the moment) and everyone will compliment you at the summer barbecue. Be careful with the sauces!
10. UGG Classic Mini Boot
Although I’m trying to limit my fashion consumption of products containing animal-derived materials such as wool, I’ve had this exact pair of UGGs for the last 4 years and they are the softest, warmest, and comfiest pair of winter shoes I own.
So I thought they should be included in the list, especially if you’re looking for comfortable flat ankle boots. Wear with a puffer jacket and your favorite leggings. Almost too obvious to be true, but it just looks amazing.
11. UGG Natural Boot
Sneakers but boots? Yes! These comfortable flat boots by UGG are made from plant-based materials. Translation: the most sustainable option if you have devoted your wardrobe to the vegan and eco-friendly perspective, or at least trying to do so.
Available in white, pink, blue, and yellow, they are something that your feed really needs. Pardon, I meant feeT. Still true anyway. #SorryNotSorry
12. Matt & Natt Vegan Rain Boots
Rain boots are out of style? So very wrong. Well, if we have to be a hundred percent concrete, this is not the traditional high-knee chunky model which you can opt for, but it’s one that deserves our attention.
Made from waterproof recycled PVC, Matt & Natt’s comfortable flat black shoes are great if you went out without an umbrella and maybe looking to recreate that scene from The Notebook. Hope it doesn’t sound too far-fetched, but look at the green ones!! Pure perfection.
