6 Alternatives to heels

There is no denying the fact that heels make every outfit look better.  They lengthen your legs and overall silhouette, they demand a commanding posture and gait and they instill a sense of confidence in the wearer.

However, sometimes (and for many people, most of the time) heels just don’t make sense. Perhaps your work requires you to be on your feet or a physical ailment does not allow you to stand on tippy-toe for an extended period of time.

But, whatever the reason, there still remains the need for a fashion solution. So, here are some flats that allow you to get some of the benefits of high heels:

Pointed Toe

Flats with a pointed toe lengthen the leg much like the height of a heel does. An almond shape will do, but a strong, exaggerated point is the most successful choice.

Toe Cleavage


Flats that are cut deep enough to reveal toe cleavage leave more skin of the foot exposed, lengthening the leg in the process.

Sleek Sole


A sleek, minimalist sole mimics the light, feminine feeling of a pair of high heels. Avoid thick rubber soles and select thin leather ones instead.

Nude Flats


Flats in a skin tone hue virtually eradicate the break between your foot and your shoe, giving the appearance of a leg that extends all the way to the end of your footwear.

Bejeweled, Embellished, Textured, Patterned and Colored


A pair of flats that demands attention is truly a pair of heels at heart. Build your outfit around them and revel in the boldness.



Patent leather and metallic flats look elevated and special, much like your favorites heels. Slip these on for nights out, presentations at school or work and client-facing meetings.

And, of course, if you can score yourself a pair of flats with more than one of the above qualifications, you’ve hit the footwear jackpot! Three cheers for fashion and function coexisting!

Dolce & Gabbana Rock

November 07, 2018

After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.

There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life.
