Women's flat shoes have been around for centuries. From the sandals characterized by the gladiator times to embroidered flats which adorned the feet of Egyptian nobles to the ballet flats made famous by Audrey Hepburn, flats are the classic and forever beautiful option for any woman's tastes.
As early as 1324 BC, flats and sandals have been a fashion trend that was adored by the nobility in almost every culture. King Tut had a form a flip-flops that would not be out of place if you walked around in them today. Although his were pure gold (and probably not very comfortable), the design still remains and probably will for a very long time.
Around 400, the Egyptian style for women's flat shoes were also not unlike many we see today. Elegantly designed with leather and embroidery, they were also probably less comfortable as options we have today, but no less classic and beautiful.
In the 1800s, women's flat shoes took the style of ballet flats in England, which is a fashion trend that is not really a trend anymore, but rather a fixed, timeless design. Made especially famous in the 1950s by Audrey Hepburn who wore ballet flats and skinny jeans in the movie Funny Face, flats remained a desired addition to any woman's closet.
With the deep history and timelessness of women's flat shoes, it is no wonder that they are one of the most sought after designs to this day. Go back to school in style, and find your favorite pair of flats or sandals today!
