The Best Black Flats Ever

Feb 19, 2014

I recently said goodbye to my favorite basic black flats.  While searching for a replacement pair, I came across these Ann Taylor flats.  They are incredibly comfortable.  And you can’t see it very well in the photo, but the material is a textured, snakeskin-like leather.

If you don’t need the exotic leather, Ann Taylor also offers a basic leather flat in black and dark navy.  They also offer a similar flat in a D’orsay flat with a pointed-toe.

I find Ann Taylor’s shoes to be the most comfortable ones available in their price range.  I also have their Fabian leather pumps and find them comfortable even when I need to walk or stand for several hours.  So if you are still looking for comfortable, professional shoes, give these a try.

    Not for the wide of feet, just FYI.

    Own these shoes, wear them several days a week. No complaints at all, and I’ve had them for at least 5 months!

  3. Nancy M. says:

    I bought the Fabian shoes per your previous recommendation, and they’re fantastic! Thanks!

  4. AttiredAttorney says:

    Any recommendations for size 12 shoe wearers?

  5. B says:

    Thanks for posting this! I’ve been looking for the perfect black flat forever!

  6. Michelle says:

    Anne Taylor shoes are definitely not for someone with narrow feet, either! Too bad – they are super cute, comfortable, and a great price!

    ohh, i love ann taylor heels, but have yet to try their flats. i really liked their tortoiseshell/leopard ones from last season though. i own so many cheap pairs of flats, though — do you think these would be able to withstand the dc sidewalks?

    For everyone with narrow and wide feet, try the Cole Haan Manhattan flats. They’re amazing! I danced for years and my toes are a wreck, but their flats feel wonderful! And I like that their outlets carry present and past season shoes. Also, they were just featured on the Fodor’s most stylish travel shoes: https://www.fodors.com/news/fodors-approved-15-most-stylish-womens-shoes-for-travel-10294.html

    Ughhhhhhhh, my entire wardrobe comes from either Loft or Ann Taylor. I keep trying to branch out, but they keep having sales and make such classic pieces. Now they’ve had to go and make comfy shoes too! I own their perfect pump in nude and a pair of cute black suede loafers. This has to stop!
