Not only are there endless options available to shop, but endless styling inspiration also abounds.

I took a quick scroll through my Insta follows in those European cities with flat shoes in mind, and I came up with some incredibly cool outfit ideas for how to wear a variety of options. From simple ballet flats to edgy boots and trendy Mary Janes, I found five flat shoe styles that fashion people in each respective city are reaching for this season.
