Trend Alert: Flexi Flats

You all went gaga over Tory Burch's Spring Prima Reva Ballerina Flats so I wonder if you will like this flexi flat trend. I am an avid flat wearer and at first when I saw these I thought they looked funny, all scrunched up on the back. These pliable ballet flats are supposed to provide a flexible fit, thanks to the elastic hugging the back of the foot. The more I see them, especially the luxurious ones, the more I'm warming up to them. After all, my flat collection is not complete without this style right? Here are my designer and non-designer choices:

Dior Flex Silver Ballet Flats, $420.

Sam Edelman 'Caroline' Flat, $89.95.

ALDO Mauve, $39.99.

A few more,

Nine West Women's Shelbi Ballet Flat, $68.95.

Tod's Degas Ballerinas, $325.

French Sole "Rhythm" Collapsible Ballet, $160.

I love flats... I found some flexi ones like those at Gap for $30 and I have them in black. They also come in brown, gray, and gold. I'm not sure if they carry them anymore, but they're SO comfortable!

I have been trying to find that perfect pair of flats for spring (my fiance thinks I'm insane)...I'll have to check out that Nine West site, ForgetMeNot!

I love these. I adore flats, but they always fall off my feet for some reason!

Word of warning: my friend wore some of these on our Christmas shopping trip. Her feet were killing her in an hour because there is no support or padding in them at all. Like being barefoot on gravel! Cute, though.

My favourite are Nine West's "Luv My Flats." They come in a bunch of different colours. I like taking them with me folded up in their tiny carry-bag in case my regular shoes get uncomfortable.

These shoes are good, as long as you can fold them up and keep them in your bag. I hate driving in heels and these are great to throw on when you want to get out of your heels.

I love the Tods, but I agree, they are a bit too pricey. I live for my ballet flats, though so I'll have to do some hunting for some cheaper ones.

I can't imagine wearing shoes with no height at all. And they do look like my mom's slippers. Seriously, even my Chucks would give more support & protection from "road hazards" than these. The only good thing I can say about these is I could safely wear my 32" inseam jeans without them looking too short. (I prefer 33-34.)

I like the red ones with the tie on the heel. I am a little princess-and-the-pea about this. I cannot imagine actually walking over anything the least bumpy. It could be painful.

The Dior are fabulous and WAY out of my price range. Same goes for the Tod's. The Aldo are cute, too, though.

I don't like these, they remind my of my Grandma's slippers.

The Tods one look like so much fun and would be a great contrast to the whites and yellows of spring too bad they are too much for me :(

I like the Tod's. Would not pay that much, though :(
