Tell me: Do you guys splurge when it comes to flats? I wear my black flats (the “steal” pair above) all the time and find that I need to replace them every few months- usually because I’ve worn them to pieces or because they’ve become too odorous (not cute, I know). It’s about time for me to replace my current pair and I’m wondering if it’s worth it to spend a bit more money in the hopes that they’ll last longer? Then again, for a pair of shoes that I know will be worn in all sorts of elements and conditions (I’ve said it before, the streets of NYC are not kind to shoes), does it really make sense to spend a bunch of money? I’d love to hear your advice in the comments below!
