Let’s get real. After a couple hours in our (painful) four-inch heels,
we can’t wait to switch to flats the minute we leave a society event.
We’ve curated gorgeous options for maximum comfort and style—and we might just slip on a pair for next year’s Opera Ball. Why not?

Lush and plush.
Label-loving It Girls are clamoring for Gucci’s Princetown velvet slipper, a new take on a classic style; $850, bergdorfgoodman.com.
