The Kick Off

Talaria Flats was started in 2014. We believed there should be a comfortable, beautiful shoe that could be worn instead of (or after!) heels at a formal event, as well as on a daily basis.

So, we looked into it.

There were companies selling cheap flats that looked like they wouldn't even make it out of the package before ripping. Then there were companies selling flats for over $200.

Since we couldn't find the perfect shoe, we decided to make it. This is how Talaria Flats was born.

All our shoes are warehoused in and shipped from our bases in Connecticut and Missouri. 

The Name

Talaria (tuh-LAH-ree-uh) is the name of the winged sandal worn by Hermes, the messenger god of Ancient Greek mythology. The sandals were made of impenetrable gold and had wings on them, allowing him to travel safely and quickly. And Talaria Flats are the modern day version of this story - shoes that allow a woman to continue on her journey through the day or night.
