Gap’s city flats take the sting out of style
What: Gap city flats in tan leather
Where: Gap (various locations)
Price Tag: $39.50
Why: The only thing worse than the pain of limping home in heels after a night of cocktails is not having danced the night away because your stilettos aren’t comfortable. Thank goodness for Gap’s chic city flats—ballet flats designed to be folded and packed in a matching travel pouch. They’re the perfect size to squeeze into your clutch or carryon, and the soles are padded for added relief. Wear them on your next flight with denim trousers, a cashmere sweater, and a linen jacket, or pop them in your purse to throw on with a shirtdress post-party. They come in loads of different colours (silver, mauve, pink, and black patent), so you can find a pair your tootsies love.
