Cute flats is one of the most wished for categories in shoes.  While appealing to women who appreciate comfort and practicality, many don't want to give up style. Flats can mix with everything from career wear and dresses to casual jeans and skirts. Even women with wardrobes full of heels, like to mix it up with a flat shoe from time-to-time. 

Some boots and sandals are also available in flat styles. The sporty activewear and normcore trend several years ago made casual comfort chic, and many fashionable consumers never looked back.  Consequently sneakers, flat ballet skimmers, oxfords, and smoking slippers are being paired with every kind of outfit imaginable.  Even more formal dress styles can be seen worn with flat style shoes, while embellishments and baroque fabrics, patterns, and textures have taken center stage.

Some plus-size women need size larger than 10 and wider widths, but certainly not all.  A portion of shoppers in this category also have special needs related to medical conditions that prohibit higher heels.  Consequently good quality support in construction can play a part in purchasing decisions, not just style, with some customers.
