Lord, Why Dost Thou Mock Me In This?

Even branching out from black flats to taupe and other neutrals, I'm still having no luck.

These sturdy little items from Rockport are rather cute, but I'm just not *quite* ready to give up on the hope for a sex life someday. So, no.

smurf shoes

These sure do look comfortable, and when I get called to a congregation of SMURFS, I'll definitely get a pair.

And these little jim dandys with absolutely no support might be cute once you get them on,

UFS

but I have this irrational fear that they might go flying off my foot in the middle of a board meeting and hit someone in the eye. We can't have that.

Dare I question why you're kicking your legs in meetings? Cabaret? Kung fu?

May I suggest these?

As one who's had way too much knee surgery to still wear heels and too many cobblestones on my commute, I'm sold on Cole Haan's G Series shoes (with Nike). Very good for walking, and often very stylish. Plus, if I'm going to wear flats, I think the pointy toes help make the leg look longer. You can sometimes find them at DSW, Marshalls, TJMAXX, Filene's Basment too.

I made the terrible mistake of trying on a pair of the cute crnkly ballet flats a bit ago. They were lovely, until the elastic cut off all the circulation to my toes, and my feet began swelling up of the edges of the shoes.

So unattractive. My feet are large enough, thank you very much.

My faves are josef seibel shoes.
and i hear dansko clogs are wonderful, and I've had good flirtations with merrells and bjorn and clarks.

Try them!

Love the josef seibel experience! great support, cute, and really comfy!
