Black Evening Flats
At a recent shoot, GP wore some Balenciaga flats—rad, but comparable in price to a really (really) nice vacation, and some black lace-up flats from Michael Kors (now available for pre-order in our shop). The latter have since become her obsession of the season, which we know because she wears them almost every day. They’ve also inspired an ongoing conversation about how hard it is to find the perfect black evening shoe. Here, the best of the best.

shorter hemlines, like evening shorts
