Is it possible to live without having ballet flats today? This is an indispensable thing for walking trips. Best indoor shoes when the feet are buzzing from the high heels. But what to choose to be stylish, beautiful and most importantly convenient?
I decided in favor of Bloch flats. I liked these ballet flats, made by the company which specializes in footwear for ballet. So, they have to be of very high quality and extremely comfortable, as is the ballerinas should work to restore and protect their feet. I opted for the model of Bloch Mushroom Patent Ballerina Flats.
The main thing is to choose the right model and size. Each model has its own dimensional grid. Almost all models look attractive at the photo but you can understand whether a particular model with big cut-out looks good only on your feet.

My exact US size is 7. So, 7,5 (EU 38,5) is fitting great. I ordered this model twice. First time I’ve got huge ballet flats ordering 8 (EU 39) size , following buyers’ reviews. When I’ve chosen right size, they fitted and looked much better then Bloch Fontayn, which I already had. They won because of the beautiful open cut (Bloch Fontayn are more closed and look more old-fashion). They do not offer any real support or shock absorption but they also do not need any “breaking in”. They are extremely comfortable from the start. The leather is soft and tender inside. The feeling that the legs are in heaven! Also the patent leather gives them luxury look.
These ballet flat are gorgeous! But the quality! It is beyond words! The most comfortable of ANY I have had. I also wish to have them in black and red!
Fits true to size, take your normal size.
