We keep hearing rumors that soon we’ll be allowed to wear our shoes when we go through the security line at the airport, but until that day, we’re sticking with shoes that slide on and off easily for our plane flights: Flats and Loafers. Here are a few that fit the bill and are also cute enough to wear once you reach your destination.
Best All Around: Leopard Print
Leopard is the new neutral. These AK Anne Klein flats have a flattering slight wedge and will go with nearly any color you pack and adds a dash of sex appeal to even a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit. They’re made of man-made material so they’re totally weatherproof!
Best Beach Flat: Cork Shoes
If you’re headed to the beach, slip on these cork flats from Sam Edelman (shown top). The coral trim and tan and white sole are simultaneously preppy and hip, like they’re saying “Please bring me another gin and tonic.”
Best City Flat: Subtly Sequined
When your destination is a city—any city—you can generally count on two things: you’re going to walk a lot and you better bring your chicest styles. These Adrienne Vittadini ballet flats have a round toe and the perfect hint of a sole to make them totally comfortable, while the clear rhinestones give them just the right amount of flash.
Best Cold Weather Flat: Shearling-Lined
Keep your tootsies warm on your next ski trip with these Born Shoes. The brown leather loafers are lined with shearling and have a rubber sole with grips so you can navigate icy sidewalks. Plus, just think how warm these babies will keep your feet on the plane!
