If you’re done with sky-high heels, you’ll definitely be happy to know that ballet flats are big for the spring season. When it comes to the updated flat, think comfort . . . especially those that are soft and textured in gently distressed leather.
Fans of ballet flats are in good company. French shoe brand, Repetto, was a favorite of French actress, Brigitte Bardot. The company is still around and creating light, flexible flats that feel as if you aren’t wearing any shoes at all.
Timeless Delman ballet flats were staples for fashion sensations like Jackie Onassis and Audrey Hepburn. The 80-year old shoe company is still going strong, especially with their nude color (camel) patent leather ballet flat with elasticized heel and rubber outsoles.
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
When it comes to ballet flats, it’s all about the size of your feet. If your feet are petite, look for flats that add length and avoid those with an ankle strap. Wide feet work better in flats with higher sides, while bigger sizes look best in rounded toe flats in darker colors.
