The Only Ballerina Pumps You Need

The Only Ballerina Pumps You Need

If you’ve long feared the humble ballet flat for its lack of support, now’s the time to rethink. Last week, we told you all about how FitFlop are employing specialist biomechanical engineering to ensure their shoes are the most comfortable, durable and supportive designs out there – and now they’re applying this technology to ballerinas, so you can get that polished French girl look, worry-free.

A favourite of Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo and Parisian girls alike, the simple slip-on ballerina is the easy way to do feminine, smart-casual dressing. Perfect with skinny jeans and chunky knits at this time of year, they’re the essential everyone should have in their wardrobe – and their timeless quality means once you’ve invested, you’ll keep them forever. Here are the only four we recommend you buy, courtesy of FitFlop…

The Chic Style

There’s nothing chicer than a big black jumper, black leather skinnies and black ballet flats paired together. An effortless combination that works for everyone, these shoes inject a subtle feminine injection into an otherwise rock ‘n’ roll edit.

The Cool Style

Need to inject a bit of drama into your wardrobe? A silver pump is the ultimate cool/classic hybrid. The look goes with everything and will elevate everything from black denim to maxi dresses.

The Classic Style

We all have those outfits which require a really simple, understated shoe, be it a masculine jumpsuit or busy patterned separates. A nude pair of ballet slippers will always stand you in good stead – perfect for when trainers, boots and heels just don’t work.

The Glamorous Style

Nothing adds glamour to an outfit like an injection of gold, but sometimes statement earrings are just a little too much. Enter the gold ballerina – perfect for making that all-black outfit pop, or a fun accompaniment to a host of statement prints, colours and textures.
