I have a very high instep and arch. I can't wear super flat shoe.

Since we all have different issues, variety is good.

Same here. My podiatrist actually told me that flats are not good for me because of my high arch & instep.

I look better in a heel but sometimes only a flat will do.

There's always a need for flat shoes.

I am in the same boat. I cannot wear a flat shoe. High instep.

Re: I don't like FLAT SHOES!

I have a whole lot of metal in my left foot and it does not allow wearing any heels above 1 1/2 in. I have never been able to wear heels anyway. To each their own I say. I don't mind you wearing heels and don't understand why you would care if I wear flats.

Re: I don't like FLAT SHOES!

I'm particularly thrilled with all of the flat shoes I'm able to buy in recent years. I have arthritis in my knees and my ortho doc says I need to wear flat, flexible shoes; something close to walking barefoot. No orthotics. And, I have to agree in that I had already discovered that I walk with much less discomfort in flat shoes, or ballet slippers at home.

So, I'm not really concerned that some think they are not fashionable. I wear what gives me the most comfort. Wearing heels for years, when I was younger, contributed to the knee issues I now have.

So ... don't buy flat shoes, then?

Re: I don't like FLAT SHOES!

I am all for comfort as well, but I also like style. I have worn SAS (San Antonio Shoes) exclusively for many, many years and they feel wonderful from the first step! SAS has added a huge variety of styles recently.

Agree. I'm probably the only one too that doesn't like a ballet flat either.

I like a shoe with a slight heel not a ballet flat.
