For the last couple of weeks,  I have been online shopping for some cute, comfortable shoes to wear on vacation. I posted a while back on how my vacation clothing wardrobe had come together…all but the shoes. I have a couple of pairs of comfortable flats I could take, ie. sandals, Converse All-Star sneakers,  but I was just looking for something different. I know, you are not supposed to buy new shoes and then walk for miles while on vacation and expect that they will feel like your old pair of comfortable shoes but I figured a had a few days to break them in.

Well, once I started looking, I came across a new style of sandal this season that looks to be too cute and has that comfort factor as well. On the Anthropologie website, they are called “flatforms”, a low heeled platform. I only found this terminology after using multiple search terms – flat platforms, low platforms,  short platforms, etc. Anthropolgie has multiple styles and colors.

Also, I like this Elizabeth and James T-trap version called Cree and the ASOS pretty grey and white called Wistful (aptly named).

I fell in love with a very affordable version from Isabel Toledo for Payless collection. Unfortunately, these were no longer available in stores or on the website.I ended up getting a much smaller heel version, more flat than platform from Piperlime and I love them.

The day after I received the Nicole sandals, I received an email from with the cutest flats that look weather resistant as well and comfortable. I couldn’t resist and ordered those to. They should be in Friday!
