When comfort is key: 9 stylish flats every mama needs for the school run

Trine Jensen-Burke

Running in heels?

No thanks.

Look, we love a pair of glam AF heels as much as you do, but guys – there is a time and a place for comfort, and when it comes to the school run and busy morning drop-off’s, we are all about our flats these days.

Dragging kids around? Heck, we just need to be a little more practical. Enter: flats. Is it possible to have stylish shoes that are comfortable too? YES. And you can, too, mama.

These seven pairs of flats are both on trend and super comfortable. Get to shopping!

1. Minnie Travel Ballet Flats (Tory Burch)

Possibly the most classic flat shoe out there – every mama’s wardrobe should include a pair of Tory Burch ballet flats.



2. Jewel Trim Square Toe Loafers (M&S)

Brighten up your working week with these chic loafers.


3. Trainers (H&M)

As perfect with jeans as they will be with a midi skirt or floaty dress.


4. Shearling-Lined Leather Loafers (Gucci)

Yes, they are crazy expensive. Crazy. But just look at how cozy they look! And how toasty your toes are going to be on those freezing, miserable school mornings.

€850 (yes, really)

5. Dragon Velvet Sneakers (Charlotte Olympia)

Sporty sneakers have never been more statement-making.


6. Printed Loafers (Zara)

Stop the traffic gorgeous, these Zara loafers are a real steal.


7. Black Bow Mule (Penneys)

Add a little elegance to any outfit with these gorgeous mules.


8. Leopard-Print Ballerina Pump (Dune)

Animal prints are everywhere this season, and while leopard can be a hard print to pull off, we think these cute ballerinas are the perfect nod to the trend without being OTT.


9. Soft Suede Erin Brogues (Boden)

Hmm, which to choose: smart brogues or casual loafers? Or maybe these super-chic brofers?  We bet these will become your one-stop everyday pair in no-time.
