Shop the 100: #5 Ballet Flat

March 5, 2012


the best ballet flats

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!
