Probably one of our biggest wardrobe staples, the perfect pair of flats are a wonderful thing. From smart to casual, black to rainbow, strappy to fully enclosed, the multitude of options on the market can be bewildering. Here at Beggs Shoes we have you covered… your perfect flat is just a couple of clicks away…
Styles of Flat Shoes:
Possibly one of the most commonly bought styles of shoe, the pump or ballerina flat features an enclosed toe, heel and sides while leaving the top of the foot exposed, as a ballet shoe would. A quick and easy slip on this style of shoe features heavily in many a wardrobe and covers a magnitude of occasions. A plain black pump with a supportive comfort sole might just be the perfect work shoe such as the Pennybow from IMAC shoes while for a special occasion perhaps a bright and beautiful patent pump would do the trick such as the pink pump from Wonders: the Labruni.
A real wardrobe staple, perfect with jeans for a more casual look or with a dress for a more formal occasion, the loafer is a beautifully structured shoe that covers the toe, heel and sides of the foot while leaving part of the upper exposed. Typically, more structured and often with a squarer toe box than a pump, the moccasin is a real comfort shoe. Available in multiple colours, these Ambition Antoni shoes are perfect for adding classic style to any outfit.
An easy, pop it on and go option, the slip-on shoe covers a multitude of eventualities. Typically comprising of a mainly enclosed foot, with perhaps elasticated sides to the opening for ease of use. The slip on shoe tends to be more of a casual option and these Skechers represent just that: Moonshadow Skechers though there are some smarter options and the Cherry from Jana style from Jana shoes is a perfect example.
From trainers to sneakers to hi tops to boots, lacing flats come in many shapes and styles and are a brilliant addition to any wardrobe. Particularly good for those with perhaps more awkward feet, depending on where the lacing starts, the lace fastenings can be used to help determine the width of the shoe, the lower down the foot the lacing starts the more effective it will be. From casual IMAC Antaglo to sporty Skechers Go Step Sport to a smart pair of Marco Tozzi Dota there is something for everyone.
