Shop 19 Elevated But Flat Sandals for Those Who Aren’t Ready to Wear Heels Again
With the return to nightlife comes the return of both going out clothes and, of course, the going out shoe. It’s likely that the high heels, strappy sandals, and platforms, once pushed to the back of our closets and neglected, like us, have also reemerged into your rotation of evening wear. And while some can’t resist the urge to step out in a heel, it’s understandable if you may not want to wear a pair just yet. Those looking for something that lacks a heel—but doesn’t lack attitude or personality—might want to consider a pair of elevated but flat sandals.
These dressed-up flat sandals feel just as special to wear out as a heel would—they’re basically a heel without the height. To keep it simple, try a sleek square-toe satin black slide with straps or a pair that elegantly lace up your ankle from Tamara Mellon or Tory Burch while keeping your two feet firmly on the ground. Those who rely on shoes to jazz up their looks can do so with jewel-adorned slip-ons, embellished flat espadrilles, or pearl strung ankle laces—or by paying tribute to the ’90s kitten heel with a flirty slide or with a bright pop of color from Khaite or Manolo Blahnik.
If feeling overdressed is your worry, you’ll never feel that way in a slide or a pair of flat sandals, and these elegant styles are the perfect solution for dressing up without having to sacrifice the ease and comfort that comes with choosing flat footwear over a heel. Who knows, these party-worthy flat sandals might just have you rethink wearing a heel again altogether.
