11 Pairs of Chic Commute Flats

Monday crunch got you in a bit of a gruff mood? Perhaps it was from sprinting to the train in your sky-high platform heels and almost breaking your neck on the way. (Been there, done that.) Between the mad dash to the bus when you're just five minutes behind schedule and attempting to squeeze in the door of an already-packed subway car, your poor Manolos (and your feet, for that matter), don't deserve the abuse.

Salvation from commute woes comes in the form of chic flats, which in addition to being a functional necessity, are also in vogue for spring 2014. Don't sacrifice style for comfort or vice versa: we found 11 pairs of appropriate flats to help you through your commute. These flats are so charming, we wouldn't be surprised if your heels get a run for their money.
