I have been on the hunt for some flats to wear when I am on my shopping rampages. I have looked everywhere for a comfortable pair. I even tried cheapie ones and super expensive ones but nothing fits comfortably. And if I am going to dare to wear flats for the first time- they better be super cute and more importantly extremely comfortable!!! So I was able to find a decent pair at Nordstroms- BP brand of black peep toe (similar HERE) ballerina flats that seem to be the only one that has fit comfortably. I think I may have tried on about 50 pairs as of late. I like the idea of peep toe flats so my toesies can breathe in the summer.
I am very particular when it comes to ballerina flats. It has to be just the right look for me otherwise I just feel weird in them. So for the price tag of $42.50 on sale for the B.P. black leather flats- I thought- what the heck.
Then I came across these Tory Burch Reva ones online during my late night online shopping sessions and they were on sale. Even at the sale price of $159.99 plus tax- I wouldn't even think to spend that on flats that I wear only when I am not working which is usually not very often. But the sting ray leather and "coconut" color got me! Being that I am in love with my Chanel Grand Shopper Tote which is made out of sting ray leather- I thought these flats have to be awesome. And they had a size 5 available which I thought - this has to be meant to be...that's my logic anytime I find shoes in size 5 :)
So I got them and was so nervous to even touch the leather since I was still in shock due to the overwhelming price tag- I slipped them on and it was heaven for my feet. Keep in mind- I have never worn flats except for tennis shoes so these felt divine! The fit was so perfect- I started to squeal with joy and tears as I thought - how would I ever wear these out knowing they were so much?
Pros: The leather is so soft- you don't want to take them off. The coconut color is so perfect because it's a neutral tone that will match anything and everything. Because of the cute Tory Burch logo- you can dress it up with a cute summer dress or wear with skinny jeans to go casual. The fit is perfect- no toe cleavage (my pet peeve) and the ruching in the back keeps petite feet from slipping. The toe box fits very comfortably- not too wide or narrow. The quality is ridiculous and you can't beat it. You really do get what you pay for. I love love love the sting ray leather- the pebble leather is just lovely.
Cons: The price tag is very steep even on major sale. But you do get what you pay.
VERDICT: Keeping! It's the best pair I have found so even at the steep price, I love them!
