I always thought one of the purposes of wearing nice or stylish clothes/shoes/etc. was to attract members of the other sex. If I see a woman in flats I either think "stupid hipster" if it applies or "meh" if it doesn't. She doesn't have to be wearing pumps or stilettos, because I hear those hurt, but heels are classy and sexy.
Read through this thread. I guess a lot of your fellow law students are "stupid hipsters" or "meh"? LOL I've even seen Michael Kors giraffe flats come up, which are even edgier than most of my shoe wardrobe (totally amazing btw...love it!).
I've really never understood the whole "a ton of other people look stupid so it must be legitimate" argument.
I'll leave it at that. Thank you, fashion expert, I've been schooled.
With regards to how they stay on, it depends on the pair of flats. Some have an elastic-y effect on the back of the shoe (my Tory Burch flats all have that...it's basically like a rubber band sewn into the leather to hold onto your heels). I have other flats that sling back behind my heels as well (my Burberrys that I ADORE have that...stay on without fail). Now, I have skinny heels, so I need something to grab onto my heels, but some people can keep any flats on their feet regardless. You'd have to ask them how they keep on the ones that don't have some "safety measure" if you will.
EDIT: Oh, and best brands for flats: Michael Kors, Via Spiga, Tory Burch, Burberry, Stuart Weitzman (on occasion...some of them look too old lady-ish), and I've heard good things about Christian Louboutin (but they are WAYYY out of my price range haha). Bad brands: anything under $100 (they will hurt your feet and fall apart, trust me), Coach (cute but tear the crap out of your feet).
