Detail Of The Week: Marais Ballet Flats


One of my essentials is a good pair of black ballet flats. I always wear my chosen pair until holes form...and then I wear them a little more until forced to throw them away. It's been awhile since I had a perfect pair, so I've been on the hunt and finally decided to splurge on this pair by Marais USA. I'd been admiring their shoes for a few months, but I tend to have brand loyalty (like Seychelles) because I know exactly how that brand will fit my feet. I'm happy to say these flats are amazing. In fact, I'm considering splurging on a second pair (although I might just wait and request them for Christmas).

I've been wearing them quite a bit since they arrived in the mail, so for this detail I thought I'd show the shoes traveling all over...
*Wee review: My foot is somewhere between a 7 and a 7 1/2; I bought the 7 1/2 and it fits like a dream. The silk satin upper is flawless and the structure (cushioned footbed) is extremely comfortable--unlike some ballet flats I don't feel every pebble or crack in the road. The soles are a bit slick on carpet, but I hope with some wear they'll feel less slippery to walk in (they're fine on wood/pavement/etc).

  4. Ooh, these are CUTE! I own several pairs of incredibly worn out ballet flats (I'm tough on shoes) and have been peeking around here and there for a new pair. Who would have thought that finding something so simple would be so difficult!

  8. Love the shoes!

    One thing you can do to help with slippery bottoms is take the shoes to a cobbler and get them resoled with a thin rubber sole. It's not entirely cheap, but it extends the life of your shoe (so the sole doesn't have to get worn down to be able to grip smooth surfaces) and totally worth it. :)

  10. Those are beautiful! I too wear my favorite flats until holes appear - and am always SO sad when I have to retire them. I wish I had a magic-shoe-fairy that could make my shoes live forever.

  26. Love these photos! I've been lusting for a pair for about a month now too. Maybe a splurge for my own bday gift? I was thinking beige and black, but your solid black version has me wander-lusting about all the places I could go too.

  31. I remember my childhood days when I love doll shoes! I use my black pair of doll shoes whenever I hit school and attending mass. Basically, I love wearing them all the time back then! It is super comfortable and cute.
