From the first time I put them on, they felt like I’d had them forever. No need to break them in, no pinching, they were simply comfortable from the first step and felt like I was just wearing socks. The leather upper is soft and supple, and when you add the padded footbed and elastic collar, you end up with a really great shoe.
But here’s what makes it a must-have: the shoe folds in half so you can easily pack it in your bag (it comes with its own silky pouch) and always have it with you when your feet need to be rescued.
Your late-night dancing days in 4-inch heels may be over now that you have kids, but these ballet flats will come in handy at work when you get inspired to power walk during lunch, after the gym when you don’t want to schlep around in stinky sneakers, or even at your baby shower when your feet start to swell in those heels you really shouldn’t be wearing. I can go on and on, but you get the picture.
