While we all know that sandals are the summer shoe of choice, you probably can’t spend all of your waking moments in them. For those occasions that you need a little more covering on your shoe, you’ll want one of these summer inspired wide width flats.
A good flat is not only fashionable but functional. You don’t want anything too thin on the bottom but you don’t want to be walking on a platform either. From cute and casual to chic and formal, we’re featuring flats that fit in anyone’s wardrobe.

Dressy Summer Flats
Pearl Wide Width Dress Flats
Pearl is a classy yet stunning colour in a flat, and I’ve seen no shoe wear it better than the Naturalizer Samantha Ballet shoe. They are made of leather with a synthetic sole and a tiny heel (though they’re totally considered flats).
Wearers say these shoes are pretty with superior quality. So much so that it’s hard just to pick one pair when there are four neutral-yet-fun colours to chose from. You can dress them up or down, so whether you’re headed out with friends or to work, they’re incredibly appropriate.
Restricted Wide Width Brown Flats
If you’re looking for a summer flat that can work for both a casual and professional setting and isn’t too much out there, then take a peek at the Up a Notch Flat, which comes in brown and black. They have a faux-leather look with a textured look.
What I love about these shoes is the top notch that gives a bit of classic colour. They look luxe and inexpensive but carry a super reasonable price tag. However, one wearer did say that they can cut into the back of your heel, so you might want to consider a blister prevention pad until they’re broken in.
Steve Madden Women’s Feather Loafer Flat
When it comes to dressing up for a night out in the summer, I’ve always loved the perforated look as you get with the Steve Madden Feather Loafer flats. They have a leather upper and a well-constructed design that looks fashionable but not too much.
These shoes are reported as being comfortable and come in wide width sizes (yay). They are flexible and breathable, perfect for summer comfort. The downside is that they have next to no arch support, so definitely make sure that they meet your needs before you buy.
Amazon Essentials Women’s Ballet Flat
I’ve always been into the foldable ballet flat because they’re comfortable and easy to pack, and if you’re looking for an affordable version the Amazon Essentials model is the ideal choice. For under $25 USD you get a versatile ballet flat that’s great for work or casual settings.
You can get this must-have flat 15 different colours including the camel that’s pictured, blush, faux-snake and gunmetal. They have a classic look with a soft faux-leather upper and a flattering rounded toe.
Casual Summer Flats
Yellow Ballet Loafer
If having a covered foot is more your style, then the Naturalizer Lorna Loafer is the perfect summer choice. They have a suede upper that comes in a cute fun yellow, perfect for hanging out in the summer. They also have a non-slip outsole that will keep you on your feet.
These shoes are made for all day wear, and there’s contour and technology in the footbed to keep your foot comfy. I personally love the cut-out tongue look with a slight heel (though I swear they’re technically flats). These are great for shorts, a cute jumper or a nice dress.
Naturalizer Women’s Alya Ballet Flat
If you’re looking for cute and casual, your summer wardrobe needs the Naturalizer Alya Ballet Flat. This fun modern shoe features a lightweight breathable material and comes in 12 colours (including the lavender metallic pictured).
While I believe these shoes will be super comfortable and I LOVE the metallic purple, I don’t love the white sole. That said, when you’re up and walking around with the cushioned insole, you’ll be comfortable and I think the extra sole padding will help recover some of the shocks as you walk.
Comfortview Women’s Wide Width The Tessa Flat
The Comfortview Tessa Flat is a casual shoe, perfect for those looking for something comfy and easy to wear while you run out to do your errands. They feature a knitted polyester which makes them look casual but retain a certain level of comfort and breathability perfect for summer.
They have a padded insole so you’ll stay comfy while you walk miles, and the outer sole is skid resistant so you can stay on your feet. But as casual as these bad boys are, they can easily be dressed up. Check out their other colours… pink, tan or black anyone?
Comfortview Women’s Wide Width The Bethany Flat
If you’re looking for something unique, comfortable and fun, then the Comfortview Bethany Flat might be exactly what you’re looking for. If featured a weaved pattern that gives off a homey look and a grooved bottom to keep your walk smooth.
The upper is made of a mixture of satin and elastic combined with a skid-resistant outsole. It’s designed to be comfortable and versatile, matching your wardrobe where you need it most. You can get it in 16 fashionable colours including the metallic rose that’s pictured, plum and a classic brown.
Patterned Summer Flats
Winsome Green and Gold Wide Width Pointed Toe Flats
Mint green and gold is in the air with this super cute Winsome Wanderlust d’Orsay flats that come in wide width sizes up to 12W. They have a modern pointed tow, a whimsical gold pattern. Wear them with your favourite pair of jeans or that cute romper.
They feature a lightly padded footbed that keeps you comfortable while you wander the streets of a local market while you’re on a seaside vacation or for an evening out with the girls. These will be the first shoes you pack in your bag, and the ones you’re dying to find a cute dress to wear with.
Lucky Brand Wide Width Leopard Flats
RAWR! Let out your feisty side with the Lucky Brand Alba Ballet Flat in a gorgeous leopard print. I loved the v-sided design with pointed toe front and a taller back. They have a leather upper and slip right on. Plus you’ll be uber comfortable with the lightly-padded fixed footbed.
While these are considered flats they have a tiny heel on the back, not that you’ll get much height from it. If the eyelash animal print isn’t your style, there are 12 other colours and designs for you to pick from. These are great for a casual setting or an evening out.
Restricted Blue Patterned Wide Width Flat Shoes
Patterns are in this year. Heck, patterns are in every year! If you’re looking for a cute patterned shoe and blue is your colour, I’d recommend taking a peek at the Around the World d’Orsay Flat by Restricted. These globally inspired shoes have a compelling pattern with a cute pointed toe.
While these shoes are perfect for pairing with your favourite summer dress or skirt, you can also get away with a cute pair of short shorts! You can also get these bad boys with a white instead of blue design, perfect for the bohemian bride that wants something more comfortable to wear after the wedding.
Dr. Scholl’s Shoes Women’s Really Ballet Flat
If you’re looking for the ultimate comfort flat, check out the Dr. Scholl’s Really Ballet shoe. Not only are they fashionable and cute, but they feature a memory foam footbed that’s ideal for those evening riverside walks.
Cute and well made, this shoe style has 32 different colours and patterns, including a super cute black-and-cream dot pattern, black pinstripe and a merlot patent. If you’re looking for comfort and versatility, this might just be the perfect flat for you!
