Pedro Garcia Glitter Slip-On Oxfords, $380 via Neiman Marcus
Sad news, you guys. I’ve written before that despite being a shoe lover extraordinaire, I tend to be a flats-wearer because of some nagging ankle problems from a childhood sports injury. On Friday, I re-injured my ankle and am now on a strict shoe diet of only flats, at least for the foreseeable future. And that means that I need to find the jazziest flats possible, starting with the Pedro Garcia Glitter Slip-On Oxfords.
The past few seasons have been a goldmine for people who like flats. It used to be that jewel-toed ballerinas were the most interesting option available, but now they’ve been joined by oxfords, loafers, smoking flats and brogues in everything from glitter to leopard haircalf to silver spikes. Somehow, I don’t have a black glitter pair yet, and the laceless, casual shape means that you could wear this particular pair day or night. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $380.
