I often lament that I'm caught in a vicious circle: I don't own any casual flat shoes because I don't wear them often... and I don't wear them often because I don't own any. This has often lead me to put back pair after pair of flat shoes after PN comments 'They're nice and all, but honestly.. how often would you wear them?'
Enter these shoes. I spotted them in the recently opened HR2 store in Vaughan Mills and I was instantly drawn to them. They have the look of an oxford, but the comfort and flexibility of a ballet shoe.. and I mean an actual ballet slipper, not the 'ballet flats' that you will find in all shoe stores. They're made of an extremely soft and supple leather that required absolutely no breaking in. I'm hoping these beauties have officially broken me out of my 'no flat shoes' cycle!
