Okay, I'm kind of indecisive at the moment about new shoes. A news breaking subject it is not, but hey ;)

All three are by the same company, and same basic design. But, the devil's in the details. One's more casual, the other more formal and one in between. Mostly I'm just looking for cute flats that aren't sneakers, I'm fed up with wearing sneakers... it's way more casual than I want to be. Plus, my sneakers should at some point go back into my gym bag, and I should be wearing them there again, not out and about :P

So, help a girl out... cast your vote:

Woo, first vote :D

I voted for the first pair simply because I don't like that suede-like fabric on shoes. Although, I do like that design on the last pair.

Yes, the cut-out design on the third pair is terribly cute, which is swaying me. Maybe I need 2 pairs >_<

I vote for the first one for a couple of reasons (just my personal opinion, of course - feel free to disagree):

1.) Basic design - will look great with cute capris, faded jeans, or printed summer dresses/skirts (etc.) regardless of style. Plus they won't look dated after a couple of years.

2.) All-black colouring. Won't clash whether you're wearing black or colours. The white stitching on the others might look out of place if you're not wearing any white/silver/grey. Much more "all-purpose".

3.) Ideal for your needs. I tend to find that contrast stitching on flats makes them look more like sneakers. If sneakers are what you're trying to get away from, go for plain.

4.) Suede is a bugger to keep looking nice, especially if it gets muddy or wet. Leather or vinyl is more practical for everyday wear and will last longer.

You raise good points!

I'd forgotten about the suede maintenance. We used to have one of those stones that you use to rough up nubuck leather, but by "we" I mean "back at home, at my parents' house".

Currently my fair weather shoes are a pair of black Nikes, so very much with the actual sneakers. And that's primarily what I want to get away from.

The strap detail on the second one makes it seem less casual than the third one, but yes, the contrast stitching makes it more casual than the first. I'm really liking the third one's cut-out leather design though.

I could get 2 pairs, lol, but for now I want to just get 1 pair that's actually needed.

I have a pair of flats that I wear in to work each day, that are similar to the third pair. same contrast stitching, at least.
I don't wear them *at* work, unless I'm being ultra-lazy and can't be arsed changing my shoes...
I wear mine almost everywhere. I live in them. Though, for me, heels is how I dress up jeans and shirt :)

I'm set with heels really. More heels than I really have places to wear them at the moment. I just need a nice pair of flats for primary daily wear :)

Ze zijn van het merk Privo van Clarks. Geen idee of die ook in NL/EU te krijgen zijn... Clarks well, maar of die specifiek, geen idee.

No. 3 are pretty, but I voted 1. Simple, easiest to maintain (I'm guessing), and will probably go with practically anything.

I voted even if I am a guy but watch out with that entire getting suede wet thing .. I had a jacket like that once and the maintenance was huge!
