Before dad sneakers happened, ballet flats were the comfortable footwear choice du jour. But in the wake of sneaker mania, the classic (albeit slightly boring) shoe slipped from our consciousness like a pair of low-rise jeans slipping off our…well, you know. 2019 has found its match: the Mary Jane. Think of it as the ten-year challenge for flat footwear: It’s a little bit cooler and a little bit smarter but just as versatile. Here are 25 pairs that we love.
The exaggerated silhouette and bold pattern keep them from looking too prep school.
But if prep school is what you’re going for, mustard plaid will do the trick.
Burgundy velvet and an embellished clasp elevate the style (you know, when you don’t want to wear heels).
Elevated but still comfy.
Animal print keeps them fresh.
Pair these with your best slouchy denim to avoid looking twee.
The amber hue is anything but saccharine.
A rich color with a pointed toe reads chic, not childish.
Disco ball feet…in a good way.
A square toe *just* veers into “ugly cute” territory…and we’re here for it.
The textured patent isn't too prim.
[Insert musical joke of choice.]
With an asymmetrical strap for an unconventional touch.
Show a little skin.
Own the look.
Not your typical Hot Topic hardware.
We’re suckers for a bow.
They’re just sparkly enough.
Is there anything more ’90s than mauve?
They're a helluva lot cuter than wellies.
For the indecisive.
Like jewelry for your feet.
If subtlety is your thing.
Straight out of 1993.
