Wearing flats around the city can feel almost like walking around barefoot—and not in the lightweight-running shoe, back-to-nature kind of way.

Your feet end up sore, your joints jostled. Not to mention the blisters that often form from not wearing socks.

One solution: Puma’s new Lily Ballet Flat ($74.95 at Nordstrom).

The shoe is one option in a growing category of fitness flats. Athletic companies, like Adidas by Stella McCartney, and Nike (with totally gorgeous and cushy gladiator sandals) are drawing on the in-studio footwear concept introduced by Blake Brody and taking it one step further—onto the sidewalk outside.

So, not only does the nautical-inspired Puma Lily Ballet look super cute with your yoga pants, it’s also cushion-y and supportive, since it’s made by sneaker-minded designers.

One downside: Puma’s flats are so sneaker-like in appearance, they probably won’t transition well to dinner.
