Created for Brigitte Bardot by the legendary pointe shoe manufacturer Repetto, the ballet flat could possibly be world’s most perfect shoe. Simple and elegant, this comfortable shoe has a signature style made famous not only by its originator, Bardot, but also the iconic Audrey Hepburn.
Style options – as well as price ranges – are ENDLESS. Be advised, a ballet flat has a rounded toe – those pointy-toe flats are ‘skimmers’. Every wardrobe needs a pair of black ballet flats, but be sure to pick up a few extra pairs in a bright color or pattern, cool skin, a little glitter or summery woven texture.
Most wanted: Chanel with the black toe cap. Mais oui!
