The ballet flat trend has been going strong for some time now. There is no new news about that. But how do you stand out from the masses? You get to the top of the line. Repetto started out by making actual ballet shoes in 1947 so the brand is the authority in the flats department. The venerable company keeps it fresh with neon, prints and collaborations with cool kids Opening Ceremony.
So difficult to pick just one!
Growing up in South Florida everyone wore espadrilles. It was such a ‘thing’ and I was so longing to be a city girl in NY that I hated them. Never wore them. Not until I grew up and moved to NYC that I began to embrace all the colorful ways of the South. Sure enough, I got my first pair of espadrilles a decade ago and I went for the original in espadrilles. I don’t think my feet were ever happier than that summer. I wore my Castañer gold platforms from May through September for a few years until they eventually smushed down from all the miles I put on them. We walk here in Nyc. A lot.
Luckily, Castañer makes gorgeous flats too. Shop for summer here.
Is it just me or don’t you think the Cobra Society slippers and boots from the SS12 collection would be perfect with just about anything?! I think the Alcazars pictured above would be great with cut off denim shorts and the General Idea jumper I posted earlier today. Most of all I am coveting the slippers and the OTTO boots.
