Fashionable Flats and Low-Heel Shoes to Wear Now

I’ve had several emails recently asking me to highlight some cute flats and shoes with low heels. I get it. My sister has not been able to wear high heels for years, and she is always lamenting the fact that she can’t find good-looking shoes. And, when I had a case of plantar fasciitis flare-up, I went on the search for fashionable flat shoes. So, I’ve put together a list of fashionable flats and low-heel shoes that you can wear now, and a few that will work into the fall! PS: Make sure you scroll all the way to the end because that’s where you’ll find my favorite shoe!

Banks Pump

I’m starting with these pretty metallic pumps that would be perfect for a dressier event like a wedding. These are Naturalizer which are known for making comfortable shoes. These have a one-inch heel and a curved slingback strap. If silver isn’t your style, they come in several other colors including gold.

Slingback Kitten Heel Pumps

I love pointy-toe dress shoes, and this slingback is gorgeous! This is an incredibly nice shoe that looks and feels very luxurious, and it is under $40!

Jutti d’Orsay Flat

I did not realize at first that these are TOM’S! I’m a fan of the brand, but they are usually a little more utilitarian. I love the patterned heel which gives some spark to this classic flat. They would look so chic with a nice pair of dark-wash jeans.

Cognac Khai D’Orsay Flat

The suede leather Cognac flat is perfect for this fall, but you can also wear it now. This is a gorgeous, rich looking flat, and I can’t wait to style it with jeans or a dress.

I ordered my usual size 9, and they fit great. However, if you are between sizes, then I would suggest sizing up a .5 size.

Wexley Chain Detail Flat

This is a very basic, wear-it-anytime-and-anywhere-flat. They are made by Dr. Scholl, another great shoe brand known for comfortable shoes. The gold chain accent across the top is a nice detail, and these look great in both black and tan options.

Camel Loafer Flats

I like mules and D’Orsay flats, but loafers are something I rarely wear. I decided to try this camel loafer, and I can’t believe that I actually like them!

I love a pointy-toe, and the color is a great neutral, so these will be staying in my closet. This is a pair that you can wear now and later since they are so versatile. I sized up to a 9.5, but I think my regular 9 would have fit also.

Samantha Half d’Orsay Flat

Since this is the second of several d’Orsay flats, I thought I’d give you a little background. They are actually named after Count Alfred d”Orsay. Don’t ask me why, lol. Apparently, he wore shoes with a prominent deep side cutout to accommodate his wide feet! Whatever the reason, the d’Orsay is a nice, sexy flat.

D’Orsay Flat Ballet

I love a D’Orsay Flat, but I never wear black shoes. I think it is because I had a cousin who used to tease me about having big feet, and black draws attention to them. But, I’m trying to get over that phobia, especially when wearing jeans.

These are a 9.5, but I think the 9 would have fit also.

Havana Pointed Toe Flat

You can’t go wrong with a pretty, pointed-toe flat like this Naturalizer option. These are leather, with a nice, cushioned insole, and they come in narrow, medium, and wide! I like the gold detail on the heel, and they’re available in tan, peach/pink, and black.

Marcella Ballet

How fabulous are these gold slippers from Bruno Magli?! Wearing flats doesn’t mean you have to be boring! But I understand if you think you wouldn’t wear these enough to justify the cost. Don’t worry. They have them in black, too!

I love how the buckle really shows up against the black. Which is your favorite? Black or gold?

7or9 Black Heels for Women Classic Pointed Toe Low Chunky Heels Pump 

Sometimes a Gurl needs a tiny bit of heel! These are 100% leather and just so elegant. You’ve heard of the little black dress, and these are the perfect little black pump. They are actually available in a variety of heel heights so be sure when ordering that you get exactly what you want.

Obtaom Women’s Pointy Toe Loafer Flat Comfortable Faux Suede Work Shoes

I have to include at least one loafer in this list! These are so inexpensive – under $25 dollars and they have a great rating on Amazon. I love a good white shoe to wear during summer, but of course, they have a lot of different colors. Including the fun animal print below!

Faux Suede Work Shoe

I’m loving Chocolate Brown this year (a trending color for fall), and I thought these faux suede loafers would be a great way to join in the trend without spending a lot of money. These shoes are only $21, so if I get one season out of them, I’ll be happy.

Govdaeor Women’s Chunky Block Heel Pumps Pointed Toe Slingback d’Orsay Ankle Buckle Casual Slip-On

My final d’Orsay shoe! I’ve included this because I like the chunky heel, the strap, and the chocolate brown color. The price, under $50 dollars, doesn’t hurt either! This would be a great fall shoe, for anything from jeans to plaid pants.

VenusCelia Women’s Tile-Toe Flat Shoe

Here’s another metallic option, similar to the Bruno Magli shoes above. They’re both flats, and metallic gold, but these are about a tenth of the cost! There are 26 options of this shoe – different colors, materials, and flourishes.

Soho Drench Mule

Oh, my!!! I love these mules! They fit and feel amazing. The black chain with the Kurt Geiger signature crystal-eyed eagle head gives these shoes a look of luxury. The quilted leather is soft and cushy, and these shoes are a pair that you can wear now and later.

I have to admit, these are my favorite, and as soon as I opened the box, I put them on since I was heading out the door. I bet you’ll be seeing these a lot in the future.

  17. Shelley Huprich says:

    Love the D’Orsay ballet flats, too cute!

    1. Shelley, that makes me so happy!!! Thanks for letting me know that. 🥰

  21. Nancy Worthy says:

    Shoes are such an issue these days😩

  22. Love all the flats! I use to love the heels but as you get older, they’re hard to walk in!

  23. I like the suede slingback and the Naturalizer slingback. I own them in nude. The cognac slingback is my favorite. I’m going to look into them. They look like the Naturalizer Banks but more my price. Thanks for all the low heel styles. I like high heels of 2-3 inches better but my lifestyle now calls for flatter shoes

    1. I’m glad you found something you like. Thanks for posting!

  24. Love all the options including the kitten heel sling back! So classic!

  25. Lisa Tharp says:

    Yesterday must have been the “body check” day because I, too went to my dermatologist for my annual body check. An ounce of prevention for sure!! I absolutely love these shoes! Especially the camel colored Amazon Essentials. I happen to wear an 8 1/2 or 9 4A. Bummer when looking for cute shoes. But I keep looking!!

    1. Annual checks are so important! Thanks for sharing, Lisa.

  26. Thanks for all the suggestions, especially for those of us with plantar fasciitis.

  27. Karen Daniel says:

    Love and want a lot of these shoes! The Dorsay flats and kitten heels are gorgeous!

  28. Carrie Claffey says:

    Love all the styles this year!

  29. Great list and selection. I always wear flats or low heel shoes, I find that Naturalizer and Dr. Scholl’s are very comfortable.

  30. Great shoes. Thank you for reminding us ladies to get a check up with our dermatologist. One lady in my women’s group had a cancer on her nose removed that at first check her doctor didn’t think anything about. Everyone could see the sore after removal so she just told everyone about it. 5 women went to a dermatologist for check ups and 3 ended up having cancerous spots removed. I have my appt scheduled for next month.

    1. I am so glad you are getting a check up I hope all goes well!

  31. sue koren says:

    Wish I could wear all these cute flats but I need more support in a shoe.

  32. Ginger Hiller says:

    Boy Tania, you sure did share some great flats and low heeled shoes with us. My two biggest challenges in buying flats are the need for good arch support and finding them in narrow. My heel is very narrow so keeping the shoes from moving on my heel when I walk is not easy. Mules seem to work better for me, but finding them in narrow is no easy task. Since one of my favorite sneakers is from Wal-Mart and they have arch support, I should check out the Amazon Essentials pair you shared. Thank you!

    1. Ginger, it is FABULOUS to see you commenting on the blog. I hope you’re feeling better.

  33. Jeanine Kesey says:

    Love these! Pointy toes are my favorite. I have trouble wearing heels due to balance issues. Thank God for wedge heels. So are the lug sole shoes from a few years ago gone by the wayside? I loved those too.

    1. Jeanine, I’m still seeing lug soles in the stores, but I don’t think they are as popular as they were. I guess we will have to wait and see.

  34. Marsha Morris Ingebretson says:

    Shoes are my weakness! Love several of these. Have you ever tried Charix brand shoes? Most comfortable I have ever had.

    1. I have not! Maybe that is a brand that I need to check out.

  35. I love a good pointy toe too.. I loved baby oil and iodine growing up!! LOL

  36. What a great list! I am with your sister and need these types of shoes in my wardrobe…looking forward to seeing some fall/winter options in the future too!

  37. Stacey Schauer says:

    The timing of this post is perfect! I just started a new job and have been looking for some comfortable, cute flats!

    1. I’m glad that you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! Thanks for commenting. 🙂

  38. I think I’m ready to give up heels. Thanks for all the cute flat shoe suggestions, Tania!

    1. Oh no! I love my heels!!!

  39. Thank you for this great post! I have also said goodbye to heals! Like you, I love a pointed toe…so many cute choices! Happy Friday Tania❤️

    1. Thank you for commenting. Have a great weekend! ❤️

  40. Great selection! After foot surgery I can only wear flats. I just wish there were more with non-pointy toes. Pointy toes are not friendly with my bunions!

    1. Gail, I have a bunion too. I have several pointy toe shoes and boots in the Clark’s brand. They don’t hurt my bunion at all. The Naturalizer Banks shoes also don’t hurt my bunion. Hope this helps.

  41. I absolutely love this post! I really need shoes and I love all of these! Thanks so much for your help

  42. I just love that Jutti d’Orsay Flat! That is going on my list for sure!

  43. Cute flats and low heels. A kitten heel is really cute with jeans for a polished look. Good options!

  44. Patricia Konze says:

    I have lymphedema in both of my legs so I wear compression stockings throughout the day. So, no sandals for me. Always looking for cute flat shoes. Love the loafers and the fact that they offer several colors. Thanks so much for sharing these.

    1. I’m glad you found something you liked!

  45. Great post! I need new shoes .. now I just need to decide which one(s) to order. Thanks for giving me so many options. 😊

  46. Great selection Tania! Too funny, I was always told when young that black shoes would make my feet look smaller!! The same as they told us about black pants!!

  47. Love this post. Have been on a search for low heeled shoes for an event that we have coming up. I can’t wear “flat” shoes or “high” heels. I have a pair of Journee Brynn Flats from Macy’s on order. But I love your suggestions as well. Will check them out! Thanks!

    1. I am so glad that you enjoyed this post! ❤️

  48. Some great options here!

  49. Dana Smithmier says:

    i love flats-also love chocolate brown!!

  50. I am also a fan of low-heeled shoes so thank you for showcasing these styles. And I also used baby oil and iodine in my younger years when sunbathing. What were we thinking? Ugh

    1. We were thinking about how cute we would look with a tan, LOL! 🙂

  51. Have you ever tried Born shoes? I’ve been looking at that brand for flats as well. Great post!

    1. Yes, Born shoes are really comfortable.

  52. Kim Portuesi says:

    I am so happy you posted these. I’ve been looking for flats! This helps

    1. I am glad that you liked this post! Thank you for commenting. ❤️

  53. I just love seeing all the different low heeled shoes, but as as a women nearing 70 I find I cannot wear the pointy toes anymore….probably from wearing too many pointy heels back in the day! Would love to see some chic every day shoes that go with skirts, joggers, dresses and more. Thanks for great info.

    1. I will see what I can find! Thanks for commenting.

    2. I agree. Pointy shoes just don’t seem to work anymore for me, either. But they are flattering and I envy the gals that can still do it! My best friend is 80 and still wears pointy shoes and tall heels. Crazy, right?

  54. Daleena Vaughn says:

    Thanks for the post. Great looking shoes to give many options to outfits with the weather changes.

  55. Great list of wearable shoes. I am finding that each year my collection of heels shrinks, and collection of flats grows. Thanks for the inspiration, have a blessed week.

    1. Thanks. I hope you have a blessed week, too! ❤️

  56. Love the flats. As one of your older followers, I still like to be fashionable and the flats you’ve shown hit the mark. I have a couple of pairs picked out. Thank you for including things for everyone.

    1. Glad you found something you liked!

  57. Cathy McDonald says:

    Finally! A Tom’s with a heel I can wear … love it! Thank you for highlighting shoes that are so cute but without a heel! 🥰

  58. Love leopard for fall! Thx

    1. I also love leopard print shoes for fall. Thanks for commenting!

  59. Tania, I love all the options and at variety of price points. The camel flats are one of my favorites and they have good reviews. They will be a go to for fall.

  60. Jean kern says:

    I’m in need of a new black flat and this post helped a lot

    1. I am glad that you found this post helpful! Thank you for commenting. ❤️

  61. Kelly Blackley says:
