Faith's Four Favorite Flats

I love flats. I love heels too, because it’s a requirement for anyone 5 ft. 3 in. tall. But flats seem very chic to me. They never try too hard.

Here are my four favorite flats.

Loeffler Randall skull flats
These were my Holy Grail of shoes for years. They were introduced in fall/winter 2006-07. I saw them online then and died. They were so smooth and patent-y, so dangerous with the skull cutout. They were also $400, which I can never even imagine spending on shoes, so I sadly dismissed them.

A year later, I remembered them and began hunting around. They were nowhere to be found. I started checking eBay regularly. In the spring of 2009 I lost a bid for them there. Also in the spring I missed them when they were selling on Gilt in bone patent. In October 2009 another pair came up on eBay, and I didn’t wait to bid, I “bought it now” and they were on their way! I love, love, love these shoes, and wear them year-round.

Mia harem sandals
Suede. Olive green. Comfy. These are shoes that people stop me in grocery stores to comment on.

Delman Mona flats
Classic orange patent ballerina flats. I love the color, and I love these flats. Purchased new but cheap on eBay.

Belle by Sigerson Morrison knotted flats
These are my newest favorites. They’re very unique and very comfortable. They go with many of my outfits!


  1. Those are some fabulous shoes! You have great taste! :) I adore the skull flats - I would buy those in a heartbeat.

  2. Thanks Shelia! They're especially fun to wear around Halloween with orange socks!

  3. Faith - I love the story behind your Loeffler Randall flats. I had the same thing happen with a pair of Leopard print Coach heels which was actually the subject of my very first blog post!You should check it out if you have the chance.

  4. Great ShoeZQ! I sure will check out your post.

  5. I love those Delmon Mona and Loeffler Randall flats!!

  6. very nice picks!!! :) thanks for commenting on my blog too!

    btw, how are are the delman's comfort-wise? do they pinch the back ankle?

  7. Thanks K! Yes, the Delmans do pinch the back ankle. I wear them anyways. Next time I'll go a half-size larger! Thanks for reading my blog!


Please add to the conversation! I'd love to hear from you.
