Taking Flats to a New Level

British shoe brand London Sole takes flats very seriously. The very trendy style, in fact, is the only type of shoe the company sells. London Sole has created a mind-boggling number of varieties, from classic ballet flats to pointe-toes to velvets, metallics, and prints. Though the prices may seem a bit steep, you'll never give the money a second thought when you put them on, because wearing London Sole shoes feels a bit like walking around on tiny pillows.

Right now, the company has just one U.S. store, located in Santa Monica, but it's planning to open another one very soon in San Francisco, so stay tuned. And of course, you can also buy the shoes online. Here's a look at some of their hottest styles.

Pirouette in Silver, $165, available here.

Two more, so

Lowcut in Yellow and Silver, $135, available here.

Lacey in Black and White, $135, available here.

I'm only 5'2', but sometimes I've just got to get out of heels. British shops do flats the best, just got a black pair from Topshop, but London Sole ones look so much more comfortable. Too bad I'm stuck in Singapore.

Oh Don't Torture me! We don't have London Soles in Quebec, But I so.. aw would love to have one pair of them. Other companies do flats too, and I wear them, but those seems so simple and time-less

They are cute, but not for me as I am only 5'4 and live in heels.

i agree sanD13... they are not the same. but somehow i have a much easier time rationalizing spending money on flats because i keep telling myself that i'll get a lot of mileage out of them (literally). as opposed to heals that really only make sense when i have money for cabs. lol.

ballet slippers can never replace heels but they sure are a lot more comfortable.

Call me old-fashioned. Call me old. I refuse to wear silver shoes, flat or otherwise, during daylight hours.
