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

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.

Without further ado: cute flats under $100. More »
