Description

The Foundation Flat - Size Chart Visual

An elegant, minimalist ballet flat that feels as good as it looks. Carefully crafted in Italy for everyday wear, these light brown slip-on shoes are cut, sewn, and made by hand from luxurious Italian aniline leather and their shape is defined by the natural curve of the foot. The directional square toe and flattering vamp give the humble ballet pump a simple yet modern update.

    Most comfortable shoe I own

    The leather is so buttery soft that I didn’t even need to break these in. They are the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn and I look forward to ordering the other colours.

    Foundation Flat

    The Foundation Flats are comfortable and pair well with a lot of outfits. The leather is high quality and the tan colour is beautiful. I’m normally a 37 and purchased the 37 - they run slightly big. However, it was easily fixed with a gel insert.

    Totally brilliant shoes!

    These shoes are as near to perfection as you can get. They are extremely elegant but also exceptionally comfortable. The colours are great too - I just love them!i

    Favourite shoes!

    I had been waiting to purchase these for a couple of years after seeing them on someone in a store. I haven't worn ballet flats in a few years as I could never find any that fit my foot quite right or were comfortable enough. These changed that, they the perfect flats...they are so beautifully made and so very soft to wear. I adore wearing them and highly recommend! I cannot wait to expand my collection with other beautiful colours too :)
