14 Reasons Flats Are Way Better Than Heels

"If I go to an exercise class after work, I feel funny wearing a high heel under my yoga pants. It's no fun to try to walk down the New York City subway stairs sweaty and tired, toting a purse, yoga mat while also balancing on a high heel." - Karen Wilson, Senior Producer

Every morning we find ourselves faced with the eternal question: flats or heels? There they sit in your closet, staring at you. Your mind races. "The heels will make me look taller," you tell yourself, "but the flats will be forgiving on my poor tired feet." You think in circles until your brain is fried. What if your heel gets caught in a subway grate and you fall through to the depths of the city's underbelly for days? Would a flat betray you in such a manner? No. A flat would never do that to you. Trust the flat. Embrace the flat. Wear the flat.
