14 Reasons Flats Are Way Better Than Heels

"When you inevitably find out the guy you're meeting for a first date lied about his height on his profile, he won't feel quite as bad. In flats, you're only one inch taller than he is—not FIVE." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor

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.
