30 Flats Under $50 (Your Feet Will Thank You)

We'll easily drool over a pair of beautifully crafted pumps, but flats don't tend to get the same giddy reaction. And it's time we asked: Why? When your feet have gone through hell and back from #GIRLBOSS-ing in your best heels, flats are there to offer the comfort and reassuring hold that can only come from the kindness of a horizontal plane.

It's time to show some love for the underdogs of your shoe collection — those whose only job (and one they excel at, we might add) is to serve your soles. In the spirit of making things easier for you, we'll give you one more reason to feel light on your feet: The 30 options ahead all ring in under $50 (feel that bounce bubbling up yet?). With brogues and espadrilles and everything in between, we dare you to not find an option that makes you fall in love. Your tired feet (not to mention your worn-out wallet) will thank you.
