best ballet shoes ever!

I bought a pair of plain black ballet flats in 2006 and I still wear them at least two times a week to this day! Ok ... they are looking a bit worn out but I can't bear to give them up! They are comfortable (had to wear them in a little like any new shoe), hard wearing (the rubber sole is still intact!) and value for money (I think I paid about $99 at the time). I have a pair of Louis Vuitton ballet flats that cost me $600 and that I had about 2 years wear out of before they started to fall apart! I am heading to NYC in June this year and plan on visiting the store and buying up BIG TIME! Hopefully they have lots in my size (41-42) :o And the sales assistants were extremely helpful and very nice.

Fun with Ballet Flats!

I walked into French Sole while strolling around the neighborhood. When I walked in, I was shocked to discover that they could fit so many shoes in a tiny space! The two women who attended to me really knew shoes & which shoe would fit my foot the best. I ended up picking out their quileted leather flats in black which is seriously the most comfortable flats I've ever worn. I also picked out a silver pair which were soooo cute! I must have tried on 10 different pairs of shoes & both women were so patient & kind with me!

Terrible sales people, uncomfortable shoes

The sales persons are pushy and and the shoes are not even comfortable. They looked pretty and comfortable on spot. But when worn longer they are terribly uncomfortable, pressing in all the wrong spots. All in all never again. And I strongly recommend to readers of this to avoid the store at all cost.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
