After a couple of years wearing the crap out of ballet flats, my feet decided to protest. I now suffer from fallen arches and my feet hurt like hell whenever I try and sneak on any kind of flat shoe. It's always better when I wear a heel but my poor footsies need all the support they can get. I love these lace ups, the color, the fun floral pattern. I can see myself wearing them all year-long.
