"Comfortable flats" may sound a little redundant—but just like feet, not every flat is exactly the same. Flats are held to pretty high standards, after all: As a shoe that needs to be super walkable as well as work and party appropriate, flats can't always get away with comfort the same way a sneaker can. And you probably don't want to wear a sneaker to an important business meeting or on date night. However, an uncomfortable flat can pinch toes, rub or fall flat (ha!) when it comes to arch support. An uncomfortable flat really contradicts its purpose, but not these pairs! We rounded up our top comfortable flats in all categories to make sure you're supported in any situation. From ballet flats to sandals to oxfords, click through to find the ones that will carry you here, there and everywhere. Let's try to see your favorite sneakers do that!
