The Find: Comfortable Black Flats

Jan 29, 2020

Back when I was a young intern, I would come home at night and soak my feet, treat my blisters, and wonder why no one made a pair of shoes comfortable enough to wear while giving a Capitol tour.  Fifteen years later, comfort is even more important.  I am just too old to have sore feet.  So when I find a comfortable pair of shoes, I tell everyone.

I’ve gone back and forth with Cole Haan for years.  I had an amazing pair of heels.  So I bought a pair of their Nike Air shoes, they made my feet fall asleep.  I snapped up a pair of fabulous loafers, only to buy a replacement pair that lost their sole within a month.  It’s been a real fashion rollercoaster.

So when I stopped to try on a pair of their Grand Ambition Pointy Toe Flats at my local store this weekend, I wasn’t expecting a lot.  But as I strolled around the shoe section, I was really impressed by the support, the flexibility and the comfort.  It felt like I was wearing sneakers.  (I plan to grab them in the animal print for an upcoming trip.)

There’s a reason that these flats are selling out.  If they’re gone in your size from Nordstrom, try Saks or Cole Haan.  Cole Haan’s Grand Ambition collection also makes a pump and (God love them) a wedge.  Campaign trail warriors, that wedge is like an answered prayer.

You know that I love my Rothy’s, and I could not live without them.  But sometimes, you just need a leather shoe.

    Hmmm, I’ve been burnt by a pair of terrible Cole Haan wedges. But, I trust you and may have to take a gamble on these…

    i own the Cole Haan Grand Ambition wedges and wear them almost every day running around the Hill. Highly recommend.

    Thank you so much for this! I’ve been in the market for another pair of pointy toe flats for walking around DC, and I need a pair that can go miles and miles. Life is too short for shoes that hurt my feet, and I’m too old for the Working Girl look.

    Thank you for this post. Comfy flats are surprisingly tough to find. Just ordered the leopard flats!

    The Cole Haan Sadie wedge looks sort of mumsy in the photos, but is a winner on. I ended up buying two pairs.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
