Okay, so the weird thing is I don't find ballet flats 100% comfortable either, it's just that before I started wearing heels they were the "nice" shoes of my choice... and being boring, I've just stuck with it. If I walk a bit in ballet flats my feet always ache at the end of the day. And you've just convinced me even more to try out some oxford/brogue type shoes!See, I'm the opposite
Maybe I have odd feet but I'm yet to find a pair of ballet flats that don't have a "bad" spot (whether they pinch my toes oddly or rub somewhere or some other issue).
On the other hand, brogue-style shoes are my go-to flat staple; I like the fact that they can be dressed in a manner that is feminine or androgynous and both up and down. I have several pair in different colours and different cuts that have never failed me I have one tan pair that I wore literally all across Europe that are falling apart now I'm mourning the upcoming loss because they were - and still are! - the comfiest shoes I've had the pleasure of owning and I'm worried I won't be able to equally replace them because the designer doesn't make that exact style anymore
At least you have time to think and consider maybe make a pro and con list? ;!
I'm also attracted to the hint of androgyny and just a lot of versatility brogues have. I also hope they won't make my heels ache if I walk a bit in them. Right now the most comfy shoes I have are probably my chunky ankle boots, which I'm getting sick of. And aw, I hate when I want to replace a shoe or just like a basic item of clothing but it's not available anymore.
Also, good idea! I love lists
Here I love Kristen Dunst's shoes, despite not being a fan of her or her body etc.
Gee I'm not even sure if I'll get black ones anymore. I am too indecisive, haha.
