Ballet shoes, pumps or flats (whatever you call them) are BACK, in a big way. Here's our top 10
Ballet shoes, pumps or flats (whatever you call them) are BACK – in a big way.
It’s not all about the bashed-up, lack-of-structure footwear you wore through the sole of in your teens or the preppy toe cleavage types. This season, the ballet pump got chic. It's the flat counterpart of the mid-heel glove shoe and it's actually cool right now.
If you can't afford the dream Celines, check out our pick of our high street picks from Mango and H&M to Cos and Uterque - all for under £80.
Not convinced about the ballet pump revival? Just look to the footwear on the front row and the comeback is clear. Though Alexa Chung and Kate Moss has been debuting the classic pump for years, everyone has joined the ballet bandwagon of late... Leandra Medine and the biggest names in the Instagram and bloggersphere.
If you’re worried about the pumps making your calves appear big, just don’t be — unless you’re going to perpetually rock a Birkenstock, all shoes will feel dainty. Just team your ballet pumps with a pair of loose-fit raw hem jeans for a chic, timeless off-duty look.
