Many might cringe at the memory of growing up watching Nickelodeon and pop stars in skinny jeans, mini-skirts, waistcoats and the infamous flats. Flats have had quite the journey of going in and out of the limelight but looks like 2022 is the year of flats.

From Simone Rocha’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection at London Fashion Week, Altuzarra SS22 Lace Up Sandals from The Vogue Runway to Miu Miu’s popular miniskirt being worn with dainty ballet slippers and knee-length socks Flats have made a strong comeback. Chanel’s take on the Parisian-loved shoes with delicate chain anklets was quickly picked by fashion lovers. Whether embedded with Ivory pearls, crystals, bows or sequins Flats are a sure fashion statement that doesn’t compromise on comfort.

“Working off past trends of athleisure and comfort that dominated the past few years due to the pandemic and work-from-home culture, comfortable flats are the perfect transition piece as we start going out more,” says Helen Zhang, founder of Social Work.

If classic black ballet flats, ballerinas or flat shoes aren’t your cups of tea then a wide range of Kolhapur, Mojaris, Mules or floral embroidered slides can come to your rescue. These Indian flats come in a wide range of materials that you can choose from for every possible situation. Let us see if flats hold on.
