If you work in an office where sneakers are off-limits, you might feel as if your only shoe options are heels or basic black flats. Although heels are chic and cute, they can be tough — eight hours in a heel can be painful. 

That's now a thing of the past. We're here to show you that flats can be just as cute (if not cuter) than your favorite pair of heels. Patent leather oxfords, a frilly d'orsay, or a blush ballet flat — we've curated a list of shoes that we're sure will turn you into a flats enthusiast. Buh bye, heels!
