It used to be that ballerina flats were what they sounded like – flat shoes that looked like ballet slippers. And in the strictest sense of the term, that definition is still correct. But now you can find everything from sneakers to evening shoes that are inspired by ballet slippers, and hence could be called ballerina flats.

Being heelless, ballerina flats have a tendency to make ones legs appear shorter, so pair them with a shorter skirt, extending the amount of leg that is shown.

Ballerina flats with satin or embellished uppers can seem especially dressy and elegant, while leather ballets are a bit more casual and are great for pairing with jeans and shorts.

I have been shoe-obsessed for the greater part of my life! From stick figures with elaborately illustrated heels as a child, to my first part-time job in a shoe boutique, to a Cinderella tale of marrying into a 'shoe' family! I was a destined cobbler. The last 20 years have been dedicated to footwear design. I blend my knowledge of colour, material and form to create silhouettes that evoke glamour and elegance. I draw every sketch, select materials and finalise each construction detail that produces all ShoeSales.com.au shoes. I do this with passion - appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes. My philosophy “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!” Google Plus
