As much as we love to wear sky-high heels, they certainly have their drawbacks. We try not to complain, but (oh!) our pinched toes and our sore feet — not to mention the difficulty of gracefully navigating the city streets in crummy winter weather while wearing six-inch stilettos.

There are patterned ballerina shoes, bejeweled skimmers, and some lace-up oxfords that will melt your fashionable heart. Click on for our favorite party flats to rock this season! We’ll see you on the dance floor.
