21 Affordable Flats That Look Expensive

I’m undecided about whether it’s a blessing or a curse to be born with expensive taste. But it is what it is, and the good news is that having expensive taste doesn’t mean you have to only buy expensive things. If I do say so myself, thanks to my self-professed expensive taste, I’ve also developed a knack for finding things that look far more expensive than they really are. Naturally, that includes an all-important category: shoes. Specifically, cheap shoes that look designer.

In my day-to-day life, I don’t wear heels all that often. When you work from home like I do, there’s just not that much of a need for them. As such, my closet is filled with flats from a variety of brands and at a variety of price points. So, feel free to call me a flat-shoe expert and trust that I won’t lead you astray with this roundup of affordable flats. Keep scrolling to shop my picks, all of which are under $150! (No harm shall come to your feet or your wallet.)
