Now, we totally get that flats don't give the same stand tall, stand straighter effect heels do, but we've found really cute pairs that might just make you forget about your stilettos. Transition your wardrobe smoothly into the new season by adding a dash of flats goodness in their latest incarnations:
1. Yosi Samra's Fall/Winter Collection. Flats can't get any better than this: Foldable, and fits right into your purse (wear them on your daily commute and slip right into the office—*wink, wink*). Their latest collection is inspired by some of this season's trends, no less—the '70s and fur—see that pompom piece? Totally country club chic if you pair it with your preppy threads, and becomes instantly party-ready when worn with your fave slinky dress.

3. Annie & Lori's Bella flats. The homegrown brand has been know for creating pieces that make for the perfect model off-duty look (yes, even if you're not a model). This latest addition to their roster of comfortable pairs is a totally cool and modern take on granny glove shoes that you can wear basically anywhere.

4. Keds Chillax. Washable shoes take flats goodness to the next level. With a relaxed washed twill upper, a comfy removable insole, a laceless snug fit, and a super flexible rubber outsole this style is practical in more ways than one, especially if more casual pairs are what you fancy.
