Fabulous Flat Boots: 5 Un-Boring Picks

Flat boots feel more comfortable than high boots, but flat boots are not always as flattering as a pair of killer sky high boots. Even though attractive flat boots do exist, most flat boots are only bad weather appropriate. While feeling comfortable is always important, sometimes you need to wear something with a little pizzazz too. Depending on where your legs are taking you, I have some great flat boot choices for you!

I love the Joan and David leather and textile boot. The black textile and patent leather surrounding the design really add flair to this boot. I think these are extremely sexy and perfect to wear during bad weather. They’re comfortable and have charm that the cold weather needs. This brand has the neatest designs and is typically very comfortable. I own many of their shoes and I always feel they differentiate my feet from my surrounding crowd -- always a bonus!

Joan and David Zadarah Boot

Next up, simplicity at its finest. Simple cognac colored riding boots. They’re tough looking and they look durable enough to walk through some tough terrain -- whatever that means. I love the fade in the toe area. These shoes are without flair and have nothing to them, which makes them perfect in my eyes. Plus you can’t beat the price.

Coconuts Classic Riding Boot

→ Buy the Coconuts Classic Riding Boot, $159.95 (was $249.00), at dsw.com; free shipping available.

I still think it’s funny that Carlos Santana designs shoes, but he does a pretty good job at it. His locomotive multicolored brown very high boots are great looking. There is a small heel on this bad boy but nothing a diva can’t manage to walk in. They’re definitely not high heeled and I still place them in the flat heel category. Moreover, that little heel will keep some distance between you and wet surface you are walking on. These are aggressive and may even go up or over knee. Make sure to look at measurements before your purchase.

Carlos by Carlos Santana Locomotive Boot

→ Buy the Carlos by Carlos Santana Locomotive Boot, $179.95 (was $225.00), at dsw.com; free shipping is available.

Next up is a Steve Madden shoe on sale that is worth featuring. They’re great for the gal that isn’t ready to step it up to cowboy boots, but appreciates the edgy look. The “Graced” boot comes in a tobacco brown color and in black. Both shoes are on sale and have a cool design on the side. The worn look makes this boot extra cool and every time you scratch them up you add more personality to the already rugged style.

Steve Madden Graced Boots

Keeping with the same Steve Madden theme, I love this “Rattlle” boot but only because of the chain link design on the side. I have very similar boots and I wear them because I feel like they have a little glam. Perhaps it reminds me of some of elegant handbag. Whatever it is, both colors appeal to me and they will surely appeal to you.
