New York City is known for being a walking city- there is so much to look at, and public transportation often can take just as long as hoofin’ it yourself. The vital ingredient to making sure you’re looking up and not down on your walk is comfortable, stylish shoes. Flip flops are nice for the beach, but with all the dirt and grime in this city, you are not wearing anything around here that is not secure to your feet for fear you end your day needing a pedicure. Maybe that is why they are so cheap in NYC?
I have put together a list of 10 of my favorite comfortable, affordable and good lookin’ flats that have been given the Style Safari stamp of approval for exploring a city (or just trudging it to work). All of these sneakers, espadrilles, and sandals I actually own, so I can personally vouch for the comfort, practicality and cuteness of each one!
