Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” With that in mind, Indybest has decided to help you conquer your world by trying out the most popular brands and pairs of shoes on the market to figure out which ones are right for you! Of course, we want you to look good, but we also take into account comfort and price. After having tried (too) many pairs of flat shoes for our readers, here are the brands that caught our attention.

Everlane definitely found the perfect name for its shoes - the Day Glove feels just like your feet are in a soft and flexible glove. Everlane’s ethical approach to fashion as well as transparency about its production is certainly a plus to the amazingly well-confectioned brand. Everlane takes into consideration fair wages, reasonable hours, and environment when producing the shoes. The IndyBest team believes Everlane is the brand that combines comfort, style, and quality the best.
