So the thing about cheap shoes, which is really frustrating for me, is they are really bad for your feet AND the scale of "cheap" in these terms runs from your $35 J Crew flats (which I'm sure are super cute) to $100 flats you'd buy at say, Nordstrom. It is near IMPOSSIBLE to find cute, affordable, comfortable, and foot-friendly shoes. People are selling shoddily-made shoes that are bad for your feet and charging a mint. It's criminal. It's modern day foot-binding! (okay, that's dramatic). I want to look cute but I don't want to hobble around in my old age. What is the solution? Does one exist?
