Kick off your summer in total comfort with a terrific pair of flats! This is the season of laid back casual style and total comfort, and flat heeled shoes are the ultimate accessory. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing classic ballet flats or simple gladiator style sandals, because the comfort is key. Here is a small list of must-haves.

1- Round Toe Ballet Flats

The round-toe ballet flat is the perfect shoe for home or the office. Look for a basic pair in a neutral color like black, gray, or brown. Pair yours with a pencil skirt or straight leg pin-stripe pants for a look that’s ideal for just about everything.
