Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Fancy Footwork

Posted September 17, 2008
With fall looming, it's time to put away the flip-flops (or FitFlops, if need be) and pack yourself a good pair of flats for your daily commuting grind. And because there's so much fun to be had with ballerina shoes these days, don't let your choice "fall flat." Try, for example, this affordable yet stylish suede pair from the Gap. Patrick Robinson and team added some flavor with a cheerleader-inspired pom-pom mounting the toe box, without the entire shoe becoming too juvenile. Plus, this style comes in brown, black, gray, and beetroot (a raspberry shade)—four essential fall colors that can take you from your morning commute to evening lounging—and is just right for protecting your toesies as you dance into some cooler weather.
