on the mat | in favor of flats

More often than not these days I have been wearing more flats than heels to work. Don't get me wrong - I still think heels make my legs look leaner and stronger and just flatter all around, but what I hate is that they tighten up the muscles in my legs.  90% of what I do or don't do lately is focused on how it will affect my yoga practice. And if wearing flats makes achieving my poses easier, than so be it.

Now I haven't gone as far as gotten rid of all the heels/platforms/wedges in my shoe wardrobe (that would be just crazy talk), but I am definitely wearing them fewer and farther in between. Sigh. Comfort before style - I am getting old!

I miss colder weather because flat tall boots are always stylish.

Me too.
I had ana chilles problem that affected my running and my heels had to be put in hibernation for a while.

I'm definitely a flats woman rather than heels as well.

Love how consistent your style is!

Those TB flats are great - do you find they fit true-to-size?

Those flats are gorgeous. I'm so short I find I need my heels with some outfits, but am glad to wear my flats when I can.
