Ballet flats are shoes with a closed toe and flat sole (sometimes with a small heel), designed for everyday wearing.

In addition, ballets work great with every kind of outfit, so every woman can choose a pair, which will fit her style.

Simple and Stylish Design
West Blvd shoes have classic design of ballet flats. They have very simple construction without any decorative details like bows, rhinestones, ribbons, straps and so on. On the one hand, ballets may seem to be not very dressy, but on the other hand, you wouldn’t worry about these decorations to tear off. This pair is more practical and usable in wearing. But, nevertheless, you can’t call these shoes boring and not noticeable, as this model has a great color pallet. West Blvd offers classic and casual colors like white, brown, beige, tan, black, gray and blue. Also, ballets are available in bright colors like red, zebra, pink, purple, gold, silver, leopard and bronze. Footwear is presented in different materials as well; they are faux suede, patent leatherette, and polyurethane (marked as Pu).
These versatile ballet shoes can be paired with any clothing – dresses, pants, jeans, shorts and skirt, so they are simply irreplaceable during the warm season.
Fit and Sizing of Ballet Flats
Flats are available from size 5 to 11, including half sizes. To get a perfect fit you should know that the ballets marked as “pu” run large about a half size and “suede” and “patent” shoes appear to run small. In addition, they need a break-in period and will stretch well after just a couple hours of wearing.
Constituents of Comfort
- Synthetic upper.
The upper is made of the elastic and stretchy material that will conform to the shape of the foot. Unfortunately, the upper part has no lining with a perforated arch for better breathability.
The sole is flexible and strong enough and won’t crack during walking. And also it doesn’t limit the mobility of the foot. Ballet flats have decent traction to prevent slipping.
The cushioning of these shoes is not satisfactory. The insoles don’t provide much arch support. So we will recommend using additional padding if you are going to be standing or walking a lot during the day.
Contrary to common belief, shoes with absolutely flat soles can’t be called the most comfortable. And these ballets have the small heels (0.25 inches / 0.64 cm) that will reduce the weight loaded on the spine.
Unfortunately, the main disadvantage of this model is its durability and poor quality of construction. The sole can start to tear off after some time of wearing. So, if you are looking for the pair that will last long, probably this isn’t the best one.

This pair of shoes is very versatile and will be perfect footwear for hot summer days. If you want durable ballets, this pair is not the best choice. But all in all, if you are looking for some casual and comfortable shoes, they will work perfectly.
