Well, I never thought I’d do it, but I did. I bought FLATS (classic black leather ballet) a couple weeks ago, and actually wore them! Honestly, and this is not an exaggeration, they were not as comfortable as everyone says they are. Really, many of my three-inchers are more comfortable. They killed my heels, so I bought some insoles for more cushion and arch support. But they are so cute with leggings and tunic-length hoodies, and they are great for schlepping to yoga, in winter, especially—they look very chic with my yoga gear.
So now, I’m actually thinking of getting some more (with more cushioning, of course). In the meantime, I read about prettyballerinas.com, and visited the site, and it has adorable ballet flats in every possible color…silver, pink, animal print, with toe-cleavage and without. It’s worth checking out!
