Fun fall flats--say that five times fast! I'm thrilled to see so many fall flats appearing online. With so much emphasis on towering heels and hot pants this summer, I started to fear shoe designers might forget about those of us who prefer our feet firmly on the ground. For this post, I've assembled 10 fall flats that caught my eye. Take, for instance, the Nine West Siteseeing cap toe flat ($79) above. Go to just about any shoe website and you'll find animal print shoes. But I love these flats because the toes are the only part dipped in animal print. Want a shoe that's covered in animal print?

IT'S A SHOE INOnce again, the two standout trends for fall are ballet flats and menswear-inspired shoes, like loafers and oxfords. Below are 9 variations on these two trends. Can't get enough flats? Check out Redbook magazine's slide show of 100 Must-Buy Shoes for Fall. The first 27 styles are flats!
I love suede shoes and boots--always have, probably always will. So I had to include these very classy suede and patent leather from Jones New York.
