19 pairs of flat shoes (because they are the far superior shoe).

The new office.

If you regularly stalk Mamamia’s Instagram account you’ll know that we’ve moved offices, and it’s this move that has made me come to the conclusion (quite late to the party) that flats are the far superior shoe choice.

Not only do I now walk further to get to work, but we have this expanse of wooden floor, which echoes to the loudly if you wear heels.

So loudly that anyone in heels or boots has to awkwardly prances on their tip toes for fear of interrupting everyone in our open plan office.

Since spending all day walking in towering heels is for chumps, read on for 19 pairs of flats, from Prada-inspired patent oxfords to the prettiest of ballet slippers.

And what’s a shoe list without a pair of animal-motif slippers? Nothing, so they’re in there too.
