13 Positively Charming Ballet Flats We Need, Stat!

After watching more than a few models tumble down the runway in sky-high steppers (yikes!), we're thanking our lucky stars that our own heel-induced stumbles aren't caught for the cameras. Embarrassment aside, taking a nosedive in your favorite pumps can have serious medical consequences, too. Which is why we're definitely in favor of some grounded footwear options for our 9-to-5.
Cue: ballet flats. The chic, comfy alternative we've all come to know and love continues to heighten its shoe game. From classic Mary Janes and shiny pointed ballerinas to metallic-tipped toes and T-straps, the ballet flat is in a league of its own. Take that stilettos!
