The 14 Best Prom-Appropriate Flat Shoes

Dora Fung
Market Director

Prom is all about the dress, the dancing, and your date — so what you wear on your feet should be the last thing you need to worry about. Let’s be honest, heels are great, but girls, this is 2017, and wearing sneakers with an evening look is totally acceptable these days. So don’t be afraid to widen your search when it comes to shoes. After all, even Christopher Kane sent models down the runway in Crocs for his Spring/Summer show — but don’t worry, I will not subject you to those!

Whatever your prom look is this year — dress, pantsuit, long, short, or with plenty of tulle — make sure your flats have an interesting detail and are not just a pair of plain black flat shoes. Consider bows like at the Row, studs à la Coach, buckles, an unexpected color, or even fun sneakers. There’s so many great options, we’ve rounded up the 14 best for you. Have fun with your flats and concentrate more on the dancing!
