We already justified the Tory Burch Reva flats’ price, but what about a pair of ballet flats sans a status logo? Both Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn–two timelessly hip women–wore shoes from the 80-year-old brand that is still going strong. These Delman Mona flats ($199) are a pretty camel color–nude is the hottest spring fashion trend–and the patent leather makes them more fun. You don’t have to worry about pesky blisters with these shoes that have an elasticized heel, leather lining, and a rubber sole. But is a pair of delicate flats worth the same price as a pair of leather winter boots? Let’s do the fashion math.
Flats are a saving grace for busy women, and if you wear these shoes four times out of the week for six months, they cost less than a pound of fruit. The nude color means you can wear them with anything, and because Delman makes extremely comfortable flats, it will be hard to take these off. And if Victoria Beckham can trade in her heels, you can, too.
