From flip-flops to sneakers, flats are any shoe that's, well, flat. But don't worry, their heel height, or lack of heel height, is the only thing that's flat about them. Flats have evolved into high-fashion footwear and every season new variations and design tweaks are added to footwear's flats arsenal. Spree's growing range of flat shoes, sandals, sneakers, boots and shoes of every conceivable flat kind is proof of that. The basics are the aforementioned flip-flops and sneakers followed by pumps in an array of colours, embellishments and trimmings. One of the newer styles is espadrilles, canvas sandals or slip-on shoes with rope soles that cry out for a Mediterranean holiday but which nonetheless take city sidewalks in their stride too. Ruched ballet pumps are a nod to the origins of this particular style – at the ballet. Team a black pair with black slimline pants for easy elegance or go for gold or silver with a party dress. Brogues and loafers are year-round favourites with all women who have been around long enough to know the value of comfortable shoes. Thanks to their chunky platform iterations, these classics no longer carry an age restriction.
When it comes to how to wear flats, the rules are few and simple If you're short, flats and a pencil skirt will make you look shorter. But do wear flats with a boho maxiskirt. Not heels. Never heels. In fact, much as we love heels, most women will admit that they are not everyday shoes. So, give your feet a break from time to time. A pair of bejewelled flat sandals or sequinned pumps can be as sexy as strappy heels. Consider loafers, brogues and schoolgirl Mary Janes in winter as alternatives to boots. There are certainly more types of women's flat shoes than ever before and you will find most of them at Spree. We trust you'll find your next pair of fantastic flats at Spree today!
