If you’re looking for some cute shoes for off-duty looks this season, consider ballet flats. Footwear News uncovered a small trove of the springtime favorite that you’re sure sure to love. Get the scoop below.
From Footwear News:
It’s ballet flat season once again, so it’s time to break out those chic little shoes.
While Audrey Hepburn may have walked around effortlessly in a pair, for many of us, these barely-there looks aren’t always the most comfortable option around.
But don’t think you need to cross them off your spring footwear list entirely. Comfort brands have stepped in with on-trend options that include enhanced comfort features such as super-soft uppers and cushioned footbeds.
Let’s start from the top. Think about all those times ballet flats have rubbed against your skin, causing blisters that required a box of Band-Aids to make it through the day. Today, brands are increasingly addressing this issue with styles made from glove-like leathers that are gentle on skin.
Take Cole Haan’s Tali Bow ballet flat from the Grand.OS collection: Its leather is lined, and the shoe features a padded leather footbed and lightweight rubber outsole. Meanwhile, Aerosoles Teashop ballet style is designed with its signature Stitch N Turn technology for flexibility, and adds a memory-foam footbed.
While the season’s wave of ballet flats make comfort the priority, that doesn’t mean style has been put on the back burner. Ecco’s Shape Tassel Ballerina version has a modern tapered toe, while adding a fun pom-pom to the vamp. Or try FitFlop’s Adoraballerina, an athletic-inspired version that works with today’s offering of yoga pants or capris.
