+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: February 27


Sam Edelman Noah Flat ($99)

Since Steve Madden discontinued my favorite gold flats three years ago, I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement pair.  It’s become a Grail Quest, actually.  But a few weeks ago, I spotted this pair on Amazon and decided to give them a try.

They are, in a word, sublime.

The metallic finish is shiny, but not blinding.  The shape is simple enough to be dressed up or down.  And the rubber sole makes them fairly comfortable (though this weather has limited the walking I’ve been doing, they did make it a couple of miles this weekend).

They do run a little big, so if you’re between sizes, take the smaller size.

    Finally…why oh why did Steve Madden stop making that big seller? My feet miss them in four different finishes. But, these look like they just might fit the bill. Thanks Belle! The wait is over.

    Belle, just curious — what are your favorite outfits for your gold flats?
