Ballet flats have always been the must have shoe for fashion girls. Style stars like Alexa Chung, Emma Watson and Olivia Palermo have always been seen out and about (sometimes even on the red-carpet!) in these feet-friendly flats.
Ballet flats were derived from ballerinas’ dancing footwear and were first designed by Rose Repetto (yes, from the shoe brand Repetto) in 1956. It was created because Brigitte Bardot wanted something that was as lightweight and flexible as ballet slippers. The sex kitten supreme brought this shoe to the street when she wore it on screen.
The shoe style was a silent wardrobe staple until it hit its peak in the 2000s. However, it got overshadowed by the normcore sneaker and mule trend and fell off the radar for quite a while. So, can you imagine my delight when this classic skimmer got back into action?
Time to give your sneakers and mules a break! Check out these seven comfortable ballet flats that we are obsessing over.
