It’s no surprise that few trends have lasted longer than ballet flats. The styles are chic, practical and a bit of a trend chameleon. Thanks to the recent surge in popularity, the fashion market is filled with more and more styles, colors, and fabrications of people’s favorite shoes, making it even more tempting to buy a new pair. But with all these options, which are the most comfortable ballet flats?

Aiming for comfort is really the best approach when it comes to buying shoes that can transcend trends or a single season. You want something that you can wear consistently. For more tips on how to buy shoes without compromising comfort, I clicked on my personal favorite version of the brand Aeyde.

“When searching online for comfortable and stylish ballet flats, it’s crucial to prioritize factors like construction, durability and support,” says founder Luisa Dames. “You’ll want shoes that are soft, flexible and resilient,” she continues, explaining some of the details of Aeyde’s manufacturing process.

With a better understanding of what constitutes a quality performance, I set out to find the most comfortable ballet flats. Read on to find my 18 best choices.
