Flats, Flats and More Flats



Classic Oxfords, brogues, the Chelsea boot, combat boots, over-the-knee flats boots, loafers, sporty slides . . . it’s all about flats for fall and my feet can’t thank the designers enough. I must admit that there is nothing quite like a killer heel to really make you feel good about yourself, but when it comes to traipsing around town, I simply can’t wear a heel for any length of time. Even the tiniest of kitten heel (the itty bitty kitty) makes my feet burn after more than 500 steps (yes, the podemeter confirms that I max out at 500 steps in a heel). So I am thrilled to see that it’s all about the flats this season.SezmeshoeJC

Current favourites: Jeffrey Campbell’s edgy cut-out loafer, Sezme (jeffreycampbellshoes.com, $140)


alishka_brwnNine West’s tassle loafer, the Alishka: (ninewest.ca for $115). I favour the cognac colour.   tryme_pny

I’m also crushing on these Nine West TryMe (maybe I will) calf-hair leopard print kicks (ninewest.ca $130).




  1. Fantastic! Congrats. Looks great 🙂

    I happen to need advice/guidance…..I am forever stumped when it comes to shoes. Looking for stylish shoe that can be work with most any outfit but is comfortable for walking (I have 20 min walk to and from Go Train station) and then all the walking around during the day!!!!
    Help pls!

      I find a brogue looks cute with both pants and dresses. Think Taylor Swift. So does the d’Orsay flat. There are some really cute not too masculine loafers these days that have quite pretty, feminie details. One of the best things you can do is add an insole like Dr. Scholls For Her insoles. I also recently learned a trick that suggeste you bind your third and fourth toes together to release a pressure point.

  2. I’m with you…those leopard print shoes are so cute! 🙂

  3. I’m not going to lie…Knowing that heels make YOUR feet hurt actually makes me feel better about myself. I was always wondering, how the heck does Carolyn wear those heels and still be so happy and friendly? It’s madness, I tell you!! Thank you for being human 🙂
