Metallic Flats for $30 or Less!

I love to help my friends, especially in matters of fashion. When my BFF came asking where she could get a cool pair of metallic menswear-inspired flats, I was thrilled to be able to help! Below are my top 7 picks!

First up are these copper oxfords on sale for $29.94. I love the way copper looks, and these read as a richer brown as opposed to a pale yellow like a gold pair would. There is also a pewter color offered!

Next is the only true loafer on my list. This pewter version is made of all man-made materials and is a mere $20.70 at Amazon.

This minimalist pointy-toe silver laceless oxford is my favorite on the list. It's slightly more money than the given budget at $32.80, but the high-shine finish and leg-lengthening powers of the pointy are well worth the extra $2.80, trust me. These would look amazing with a short, flippy sundress, (white) skinny jeans, tailored shorts... so many possibilities!

If you want a more subdued silver, here is a comfy-looking laceless pair for $29.99 at 6pm.

Since summer comes along sooner than you think in the south, you might want to try a perforated version (on clearance for $29.74 at Target!) to help aerate those tootsies. In cooler weather, wear them with brightly colored socks for added visual interest (and comfort!). These also come in gold.

Target also carries a similar pair with laces and a lighter, less shiny silver color. Still for a similar price at $29.99!

Another laced, laser-cut silver oxford, but this one is on sale for $20!

Lastly, I think you should consider a $40 shoe, because with that extra ten dollars, you can can a leather, handmade shoe, and that's pretty rad.

They also make a super-cool holographic version in faux leather! You can even decide how holographic you want 'em!

Hope you find something you like!


  1. The holographic ones are too pretty.. I had similar ones in silver but somehow I got them broken ;( ! Maybe I need to buy those lol :)
    I have a link up going on in my blog, so if you want go link your blog :)

    1. Aren't they, though? I love that they're made by hand, too.

      Thanks, Lara!

  2. Thanks, buddyroo! These are some good options.

  3. I don't know! I like the last laser-cut oxford, and the one you said was your favorite...but I'm wary of pointy-toe shoes being too narrow.

    1. I think I'm going with the laser-cut!

    2. Narrowness of shoes is always an issue for me, but if your feet aren't as wide as mine (and I suspect they're not), I wouldn't be too worried about a pointy toe. Think about it: they're the same shape as most of the other shoes on the list except after place where you toe ends, these keep going into a point. Your toes never actually go in the pointy part!
