Yes, yes we love a good ol' nasty 8'inch heel that will transform our walk into a supermodel-worthy sashay of the ages but let's be totally honest - who doesn't LOVE a good flat? There's nothing wrong with being kind to yourself and investing in a killer flat that will complement a look. Also with a good flat you can tag-team an ensemble and change into a killer heel for a haute-two-for-one special...
