ISO dressy comfy nude flats under $100
July 8, 2015 10:27 AM   Subscribe

I've struck out in my hunt for dressy but comfortable nude flats that DO NOT have pointed toes (round toes FTW!), and cost under $100. Can any fashion gurus here help outfit my feet for work and a wedding?

Low heels would be my second choice, but they'd have to be close-toed, and above all, comfortable! Like, "walk thirty city blocks" comfortable...

Many thanks in advance!

Do you like ballet flats? My first pick would be the Frye Carson flat or FS/NY, but I'm not sure they have a nude option. What about this one?

Target actually has surprisingly comfortable flats. I regularly walk miles in them. They break in quickly and hold up for a surprisingly long time. It may not be exactly what you're looking for - I'm not sure about your level of dressy - but I and a lot of women I work with wear them to the office (the link is to a shiny nude flat, there are also non-shiny nude ones).

The Sam Edelman Felicia Flat is the best flat ever. ~$70, super comfy, round toe. I love them so much I have them in 5 colours (including "classic nude", which is delightful).

I'm a fan of the Lucky Brand Emmie flat. They're pretty comfortable with an elastic heel and come in about a billion different colors. There's both a pinky beige and a peachy beige depending on your skin tone. They're also available on a ton of different websites, so make sure to hunt around for the best deal. Mine are usually about $40.

Cole Haan flat in patent leather (maple sugar is the nude color I have) are also comfy, though closer to $120 unless on sale.

I pretty much only wear Geox these days and I pretty much only buy them on sale, so they're always under $100 to me. I just bought this pair on sale for $80 but it's not on the company website any more and it's not on sale on Zappo's. But do keep your eyes open. I walk everywhere, don't have a car.

Response by poster: I love Target flats! Am wearing some in nude right now. But neither they nor the Nubuck/suede-ish material of the (truly awesome) Frye flats registers as dressy enough for this black-tie optional wedding, I fear...

Cole Haan Bethany Wedge with almond toe.

Pros: Dressy, can walk for miles in it, comes in wide sizes (if the reason you prefer a round toe shoe is because of toe pinching)
Con: currently $150 on sale

Dr. Scholl's? My sister-in-law wore these as a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding and said they were really comfy.

Check Betsy Johnson: 1, 2 , 3

They generally run on the small/narrow side but you can size up.

If you can find them elsewhere in your size (they're sold out at Puma's online store), I'll wholeheartedly recommend the Rhythm flats in the curds and whey colorway (or any colorway, really). I do about 4 or 5 miles daily in mine.

Naturalizer. This pair are dressy and I have a similar black pair that are very comfy and have lasted me for years.

Sam Edelman Noah flat for $50 on sale (maybe not dressy enough?), Athena Alexander Toffy flat for $42?
