Oh, YNS readers. You said you were already over the heel-less shoe trend but when we featured the heel-less Giuseppe Zanottis Rihanna wore on her 24th birthday, you made it one of our hottest posts that week.
And today, when we showed you these heel-less shoes over on our Facebook page, you gals went absolutely buh-nanas over it and had what could possibly be one of the longest discussions on YNS ever:

The numbers don’t lie, ladies. Admit it: deep inside, y’all know you want to try heel-less shoes.
So to help you come to terms with your denied desire, we made this list of heel-less shoe styles that you could start with. If bikes have training wheels, consider these as “training” heel-less shoes in that sense of the word. These aren’t so out-there, so over-the-top, and you know what? Some of these could actually be considered pretty.
Seeing as how they’re leading the scoreboard when it comes to heel-less shoe styles, all of these are from Jeffrey Campbell. Here are the 5 heel-less Jeffrey Campbells you should be first looking at if you’re thinking of going sans heels:
1. Jeffrey Campbell Twilight
Y’all already know about the Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk and you can take your pick from its 18 colors and versions. But move its Mary Jane strap to the ankle, cut a little peep style at the toe and you get this daintier, prettier and more flattering “Twilight” shoe.

2. Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Nite
The Foxy has always been one of Jeffrey Campbell’s top selling styles and so it’s not surprising to see their hot, new heel-less design on this shoe. The final result: something more funky than clunky.

3. Jeffrey Campbell Night Lita
The Lita, another top selling Jeffrey Campbell design. Actually, this shoe might have been the style that made Jeffrey Campbell.

4. Jeffrey Campbell Str8up
The Str8up is the shoe that we can see a lot of gals wearing. We love the 70s vibe it’s got going on and the suede + wooden platform combo is very for spring.

5. Jeffrey Campbell Corleone
Finally, the Corleone. Isn’t its swirly cutout design so swoon-worthy?
