Arcopedico Flower Review: Flats That Are Good For Your Feet

Arch support and elasticized straps up the comfort level of these shoes.

Cheap ballet flats might look cute, but they can destroy your feet if you actually want to walk in them. Arcopedico’s Flower flats, on the other hand, have tons of design features to support your feet and keep you comfortable. The cushioned insole and thick bottom are anatomically designed to correctly distribute your body weight. The elasticated straps keep the shoes secure on your feet, and there’s plenty of arch support as well.

Arcopedico Flower Review

Price and Where to Buy Arcopedico’s Flower Flats: The shoes start at $134.94 on Amazon and $135 on Arcopedico’s website.

How Arcopedico’s Flower Flats Rate:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. Flats are a wardrobe staple for most women travelers, and this pair is better for your feet than most.
  • Value: 6/10. At well over $100, the Flowers are expensive, but they do have a leather upper.
  • Durability: 10/10. The leather upper and polyurethane outsole are well-crafted, and should last for many miles.
  • Cool Factor: 7/10. The bottom sole is thicker than more stylish flats, but if you get them in the solid black color, it blends in pretty well. I also like the cute cut-out flower detail on the top of the shoes, which make these stand out from the crowd.

Final Verdict: Looking for an unobtrusive flats that you can wear with confidence while you travel and don’t mind spending some cash? The Arcopedico Flowers are a solid choice.
