When it comes to shoes, flats versus heels is an age-old debate that may never die. There are benefits to both.

When you want to look bossy and confident, rocking heels seems like a no brainer. High heels are associated with sexy and make a statement. A nice heel can also benefit your health. According to Who What Wear:
‘Flats tend to be very unsupportive with little protection/cushioning for our bones, and the more flexible a shoe is, the more work it forces our joints to do, which can lead to pain along the top of the foot.’
