C. Wonder Tortoise Flats ($128)

I found these tortoise flats while looking for Ask Belle answers, and I just fell in love with them.  They’re the spring alternative to my beloved leopard Sigerson’s, which have been everywhere with me this winter.

If you’re looking for something less expensive, these tasseled flats are $98 and these open toe flats are cute too.  I also love these t-strap high heels I found (the touch of gold on the toe is chic), and these open toe pumps are simple and fun.  For lovers of low heels, these Stuart Weitzman kitten heels are a good option.

Also, I’m kind of loving the spring shoes at C. Wonder.  This cork pair with a pink stripe down the back are fun, the snakeskin flats are versatile and these gold flats are a good casual basic.

Check back at 1:00PM for two ways to wear these shoes.

    How do you find these shoes fit? I’ve got a widespread toe box – not so wide that I require wide width shoes, but wide enough that I sometimes have to size up. I LOVE these tortoise flats and would be grateful for any sizing info you have on their shoes! (They don’t appear to have reviews, and my trusty friend Google isn’t much help, either.)

      I don’t know about the closed toed shoes, but I have the open toe shoes. I absolutely love them. They don’t squeeze my toe box at all.

    Whoa, good catch on that sale, EK, thanks! I officially owe you a coke–and about $17.60. Flag me down if you see me downtown in my spiffy new snakeskin flats. 🙂

      Also, Belle, thanks for the recommending those flats!

      Do you think that grey snakeskin color could be worn with black tights? Or only with bare legs?

        I wouldn’t wear them with tights, but you could try them with grey. I don’t think black would work.

    Timely post for me. I’ve finally admitted that, with at least 3 holes in each sole, my favorite tortoise flats of over 4 years need to be retired. They were perfect – https://www.polyvore.com/kelcey_patent_tortoise_ballet_flats/thing?id=22183386 – and now I’m having a hard time finding a close replacement and have even been surfing eBay quite a bit. I did pick up the tassled Sperrys you recommended, but am on the fence. Does the tassle make them totally matronly? I was hoping to wear these with toothpick jeans and skirts, but wonder if they are too old/businessy for the casual shoe I’m looking for. Thoughts, Belle?
