High heels may be the favored footwear for many fashionistas, but for other folks, pretty, practical flats are just as indispensable. This is especially true during the holidays, when rushing errands for Christmas parties and hectic gift-shopping trips aren’t just a given, but a sport. You probably don't have to imagine how your toes would feel after hours of running the shopping circuit--you know it and have lived it!
Looking for a pair of flats that are perfect for the yuletide season and all the frantic footwork it brings? In this edition of Frugalista Finds, we present you with 30 ballet flats, sandals, and more for under a grand. Some are fancy enough to be worn to cocktail parties in lieu of killer heels, while others are built for marching around the mall as you strike things off a never-ending gift list. Either way, you and your feet will get the bang for your buck.
