Low heels and flats have come a long way in design over the years, and I think they're actually sexier than ever. From pointy-toed flats to small-block heels, the options are vast. Don't get me started on clogs, because these puppies are another intimidating low-heel alternative that can be styled in a variety of ways—open-toed styles and loose socks are my favorites.

Best Flat Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator sandals wrap the feet and legs, similar to the shoes worn by ancient Roman gladiators. Some styles go all the way to the knee or even higher, but we prefer the right side above the ankle. Sam Edelman is the master designer of the gladiator sandal, which comes in a variety of colors and features studs, tassels and beadwork. The Gibbs Gladiator sandal features a zip at the back and an adjustable buckle closure.

Best Low Heel Mules

The handcrafted Nomadic State of Mind Braided Slip-on Mules feature a rustic vibe with a natural rope weave design. Each unique pair of shoes is made by a group of artisans in Nicaragua through an ethical production system. Their open back and round toe will make these your favorite summer must-haves.

Best Low Heel Pumps

Never miss a beat from day to night with these 2" pointed toe pumps from Stunner. There's nothing overly complicated about this classic silhouette, with a super-soft, comfortable lining, a padded footbed, and a slip-resistant outsole. This cat heel comes in 28 different colors.
