This post is brought to you by our friends at Gurl.

Shopping Guide: Affordable, Adorable Spring Flats All Under $100

Our fellow Gloss editor Samantha Escobar recently moved to New York. Unfortunately, no one warned her about bringing really comfortable shoes (New Yorkers walk a lot). For many recent transplants, all those city blocks amount to a shitload of new calluses and blisters–and a constant hum of discomfort from the feet. Anyway, we’ve been there–so we decided to help her out and compile a list of some attractive, walkable flats perfect for all that Springtime galavanting about… on the cheap.

Which is why I was floored this morning, as I was riding the elevator up to the office, to be standing beside a teenage girl wearing shearling moccasins. This blew my mind.
