Designer flats. Upon hearing those two words, many cringe and immediate think of the buckets of money that will be shelled out in a couple of minutes. True enough, designer flats can be really expensive especially when you are talking about such famous flats designer labels such as Prada, Blahnik and Ferragamo.
Still, despite the price difference, there is really not much difference between a famous flat designer label and a flats designed with no label. In fact, the only thing that often set these two apart is the fact that the former has centuries of brand name supporting the product while the latter is probably designed by up and coming designers.
Combine the designer and the local labels
At present, most people who have learned to shop wisely combine pieces from famous designer labels as well as those from the ‘local labels. Classic styles are often a great buy when it comes to shopping in a designer labels. This is because the workmanship, the quality and of course the design can be used over and over again for over a couple of years.
Non-designer labels however may be considered when buying the latest fads and designs in flats. This way, you will not be stuck with a pair shoes that is worth thousands after the crazy fad has blown over.
Still, there are also some non-designer brands that make really good pairs not only in terms of the design but also in the quality. When you have already mastered the market, you will be able to determine the quality buys, whether designer or not.
Cost is not just the answer
The designs of famous shoes designers may cost a great deal of money but it does not mean that they will look just as expensive when you wear them. In buying a pair of flats, always remember to choose the style that fits the structure of your feet and not the cost or the design label. You can buy the most expensive pair but if it does not look good on your feet, your money has just gone to waste.
Buy what you need
In considering what you are going to buy, first determine the kind of pair that you really need and will be using every time. For instance, if you are the kind of person who is always on rubber shoes, then it is better to buy a pair made by a famous shoes designer and manufacturer like Nike or Adidas. You will get value for your money because you use the pair every time. You need a good sturdy pair to last you along time.
