No outfit is complete without a rockin’ pair of shoes. But here’s the problem: I simply cannot wear high heels. I’ve tried every brand out there that’s known for its comfort: Aerosoles, Butter, DaniBlack, Ecco, Kenneth Cole. The list goes on and on.

What shoes do I wear every day? Puma flats, which I just barely get away with at the office.
