Smoking loafers are hot, hot, hot. Especially ones with stud details. I love to have a comfy pair of flats that are in a neutral color to go with anything from skirts and tights to skinny jeans. A pair, like above will take you from the office to a date night with a simply outfit change.
Another great thing about flats is they should replace EVER having to wear running shoes or tennis shoes when you are not playing sports. There is no excuse for wear horrible shoes, even when you are out running errand.
