Here I will do some reviews of the brands that have become my favorites in terms of look, comfort, quality and price. After wearing flats for a while I found the many advantages in this kind of shoes and some of the reasons that I wear them. These advantages are:
1.-Very comfortable shoes (you have the excuse to wear slippers all day long, it takes time to find brands and styles that fit your feet comfortably),
2.-Not expensive: you can buy 2 pairs of flats at Payless Shoes ($70) vs. 1 pair of men sneakers ($120) or 2 pairs of GAP flats ($ 100 uppers made in true leather) vs. 1 pair of dressy men shoes ($150 true leather) at ALDO,
3.-practical-easy to wear (no laces to tie, great shoe when you are in rush, just slip on and go to your job or school and if yor feet gets warm you can slip them off to let breathe your feet easily),
4.-keeps feet more fresh that closed men shoes(avoiding sweaty and smelly feet and reducing costs for not using socks anymore),
5.-you don´t need a lot of space to place your flats in your closet,
6.-you can share flats with your wife or girlfriend saving lots of money in footwear if you both wear equivalent shoe size (an estimated of a $100-$150/year)
7.- You can match neutral colors (black, brown, beige, white, camel, navy and light blue) flats with almost any men´s outfit,
8.- If some of your other shoes gets ruined by the rain a pair of foldable flats in your backpack can save you to walk barefeet or with very wet shoes (I have an experience like that when travelling)
9.- When wearing flats, you have tons of shapes, styles and colors to choose
10.- For good or not you can strike up a chat with woman, showing that you are confident to wear what you like.
11.- Breaking gender barriers = more equity for both men and women
