You don't have to ditch comfort to rock a pair of designer shoes, especially if your style is laid-back or if you're simply not used to wearing heels. Many fashion houses offer flats that are just as dressy as their heel counterparts, and they normally come in one timeless silhouette: ballet flats.
Typically crafted from premium leather, these designer flats elevate an outfit without sacrificing comfort, which means you'll be getting the most wear out of that big-ticket purchase!
1. Tory Burch Minnie Travel Ballet Flats
When it comes to ballet flats, this list won't be complete without Tory Burch, whose signature offerings include a range of leather ballet flats, all of which are detailed with the brand's recognizable double-T logo. If you're looking for an everyday pair, your feet will love sinking into the Minnie Travel Ballet's super-comfy sole made of layers of foam cushioning. This foldable pair's rubber sole is also split-resistant!
Tory Burch is located at Greenbelt 5, Rustan's Makati, Rustan's Shangri-La, and Power Plant Mall.
2. Dior J'adior Ballerina
Introduced in 2017, Dior's J'adior slingback flat is one of today's trendiest designer shoes, and with its classic color (it's also available in nude) and undying ballet shoe-style, it sure is a designer buy that will stand the test of time.
The ladylike pair is famously detailed with a printed ribbon trim, which acts as the slingback, and is emblazoned with 'J'Adior.'
3. Chanel Ballerinas
Ballet flats have always been a staple in Chanel, and for good reason: They're comfy, chic, and always wearable.
This season, the ballet flats, made from either lambskin and patent calfskin leather or tweed fabric, are available in colors black, yellow, gold, and navy blue.
4. Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Ballet Flat
An oldie but a goodie: Salvatore Ferragamo's signature bow-embellished flats are a true classic. In fact, its original design called Vara dates back to 1978! Structured and polished, this patent pair will dress up your laid-back jeans and won't fail to complement your professional office looks.
Salvatore Ferragamo is located at Greenbelt 4, Rustan's Makati, and Rustan's Sangri-La.
