Finally – the weather has warmed up, the sun is out, and my feet are seeing the light of day again! Forget about Uggs and snow and chattering teeth…it’s time to pull out my favorite ballet flats.

Only when I started digging through my closet, I realized that all of my flats were looking dusty, old and broken down. There was even (gasp!) a hole in the bottom of one pair. This won’t do…well, there was never a better time to check out what’s happening in the world of cute flats for this season.

When I’m on the hunt for good ballet flats, I want them to be stylish, versatile, and most of all…discretely comfortable. Last year, I was suckered into a couple of pairs with wooden soles – I made a promise to myself that this year, softer (erm, quieter) varieties are a must-have.

Finally, make sure if you chose ballet flats like Aldo’s Labuff, you might want to err on slightly smaller since leather will stretch. But if you’re going with a tougher, inflexible variety like The Carland, then what you feel when you first try them on…is what you get.
