Mary Janes

I for one, am happy that flats are coming back.

Specifically, the cross between a ballet flat and a mary jane.

I picked up these gorgeous mary janes from Aeyde last summer and have worn them to death for the last year.

They’re made from super soft, supple leather and super comfortable to walk in all day long.





Mary janes look good with shorts, with dresses, with socks.. super versatile!

The only reason I hesitated so long before buying them was.. they’re kind of expensive!

I’ve totally gotten my cost-per-wear out of them, but it led me to browsing for more affordable mary jane flats. 

Below is a list of some of the best mary janes under $200.

They’re all made from high quality leather and flat, so they’re comfortable to wear and walk in all day long.

Best Mary Janes





Aeyde Mary Jane

Available in 10+ colors



Aeyde is a German brand known for well-made, beautifully designed shoes.

Their mary janes are the reason I started wearing flats again – something about the dainty strap and square toe shape makes these shoes look so elegant on your feet.

I love the signature red thread on the heel and how many colors these come in!

I have them in a pale pink neutral but am debating getting another pair in the black patent…

Dolce Vita Mary Jane

Available in 10 colors



These Dolce Vita mary janes are the most affordable dupe I’ve found for the Aeyde version.

They come in 10 different leather colors and the shoe is super soft, comfortable and chic.

It was constantly sold out last summer so if you have your eye on these, get them!

Madewell Mary Jane

Available in 9 colors



My friend has two pairs of these and raves about them.

Madewell’s mary janes are made from supple leather and have cushy Cloudlift padding inside for all day comfort.

They come in a ton of colors and patterns – from leather to suede, as well as a fun stud version and summer-y woven options.
