A Pair of Shoes That’s Worth Wearing Shoes For

The inside scoop on our latest shoe style.

By Madeleine Kim

Online shoe-shopping is a lot like online dating. The initial attraction is all about physical appearance, whether you’re checking out a human (“those eyes!”) or a heel (“that color!”). But for the relationship to last, you need to find someone who makes you feel comfortable, whose lifestyle aligns with yours, and who supports you. If you came across the Rowan flats on our website, you might have done a double take (I mean, look at them)—but without knowing whether they were in it for the long haul, you might have been hesitant to commit. We get it, which is why we’re here to share the top three reasons we’ve fallen deeply, irrevocably in love (and think you should, too).


They Have Ballerina-Like Flexibility

You’re a master at thinking on your feet and know how to pivot when the situation calls for it. So naturally, you need shoes that can keep up. The Rowan flat is constructed using an intricate, extremely precise Italian process called “sacchetto,” which is normally reserved for ballet slippers. And much like a ballet slipper, our flat molds to your foot and allows you to move about with ease. It’s also incredibly flexible, so you can power walk, dance, or stand on your tip-toes to reach a high shelf—all without worrying about damaging your shoes.

They Feel Like Walking on Clouds

Yes to staying home and yes to nights in—but you may also want to take your date shoes out on the town from time to time (masked-up and distanced, of course). The Rowan flat includes a super-supportive Poron™ memory foam footbed and rubber-injected outer sole designed to keep you comfortable, no matter how long you’re on your feet. The footbed is also breathable and naturally odor-resistant. And yes, the Rowan flat enjoys long walks…just not on the beach, because we really recommend feeling the sand between your toes.

They Look Damn Good

Sure, these shoes are comfortable and functional. But if that was all we cared about, we would’ve just worn hiking boots. The Rowan flats are special because they’re comfortable, functional, and beautiful (and let’s be honest: you wouldn’t even be reading this if they weren’t). Inspired by the shape of our Ginger and Lillian pumps, these flats feature a pointed toe and elegant shape that elevates any outfit to the next level. Not to mention, they come in five vibrant and polished colors.
