As you may have noticed from my photo of my shoe collection last month, I currently own just two pairs of flats, not counting a few additional pairs that are so worn out they’re only fit for walking the dog and mowing the lawn in. One of my shoe aims for this year, then, is to invest in a couple of pairs of nice flats, for those days when heels aren’t appropriate (it does happen sometimes), and I thought a pale pink/nude pair could be a good choice, as they’d go with everything.
These ones by Jimmy Choo totally fit my requirements: the colour is perfect, the uppers come accessorized with a couple of pretty little flowers, which make them slightly more interesting than most ballet flats, and I’ve no doubt the leather is as soft and supple as I could wish for. One problem, of course: they’re £250. My search for new ballet flats continues. If yours ends right here, however, you can click here to buy a pair from Net-a-Porter.
