Walking is a huge part of living in New York City. That's why I love the fact that flats are so fashionable right now. Wearing comfortable, yet chic shoes is essential to getting around in the city.
Who wants to sport sexy, 3 inch-high heels while trying to catch the subway, "L", Marta or whatever your public train service is called? Ok, maybe some of you do, but it isn't easy. For those of us in NYC, it takes skill to navigate through the endless throngs of people on crowded sidewalks and subway platforms. Plus, you have to seriously concentrate on how to avoid getting your heel stuck in one of those inconveniently placed subway grates while trying to look poised and polished all at the same time.
So, leave the stylish heels for the days when you're cabbing it or driving and opt for a fabulous pair of flats!
