Something big is happening in fashion. Women are dropping down from sky high heels and stepping into flats!! We aren't just talking your seasonal sandals, but a variation of sensible shoes no matter your personal style. This grants a much needed break from skinny stilettos and over the top platforms with the opportunity to express yourself in a way that is a lot more comfortable.

Here we have the top 5 flats making an appearance this spring >>

Yes, the classic look is here to stay, but also expect some new additions to add to your warm-weather collection. Moody Florals, 3D Blossoms and Graphic Botanicals have made way to inspire some edgy flower power this May.
