Flint designed her newest shoes, a blue-and-white jacquard version of the Natalie flat, after taking a trip last year to Lisbon, Portugal with travel writer Stacie Flinner. "I loved walking around the city and exploring the cobblestone streets," Flint told Travel + Leisure. "Every part of Lisbon feels special and steeped in history, even when you go beyond the traditional tourist sites. I was inspired by the brightly colored houses, intricate architecture, and stunning tilework throughout the city."
And while travel might feel like a distant dream right now, Flint's destination-inspired collection is making us look forward to future adventures. "Travel is an essential part of my creative process and has been since I launched the brand. I try to take two to three inspiration trips a year, and many of my favorite styles were inspired by exploring a new place and culture. These trips are absolutely my favorite part of the design process," she said.

Sarah Flint's shoes are known for their polished style and impressive comfort, and the Natalie flat is no exception. Flint even said that these flats are a personal favorite for summer travel. This shoe features a pointed toe with an asymmetrical bow. Three millimeters of extra padding in the footbed provide plenty of comfort, while a leather outsole with rubber in the forepart (the front portion of the sole) offers traction that prevents slips. This style is available in eight colors, including the bold, summery azulejos blue jacquard.
In addition to the Natalie flats, which are available now, the brand will also launch the Perfect Block Sandal 30, Perfect Block Sandal 60, and Perfect Emma pump in the same Lisbon-inspired jacquard later in April and May. The full collection will also include two printed silk scarves.
