This year has given us a lot of, well, unexpected things. But one good thing to come out of it? Everlane just brought back the ballet flat in the most 2020 way—with a modern square toe. Oh, the comfort. Our feet are doing a happy dance already.
The ethical clothing brand just debuted its newest launch, The Day Ballet Flat, which comes in three traditional colors (black, white and ballet pink) and two bold hues (cobalt blue and wheat) with a fully functioning bow tie and sculptural square toe—how refreshing. As for what we're really excited about? The buttery soft Italian leather, breathable side vents (so feet don't get all sweaty and uncomfortable) and a cushioned insole that means we can actually wear these all day long, rather than just slipping them on to answer the door mid-workday.
Each color retails for $118. But thanks to Everlane's radical transparency model, we're able to see that these same shoes would cost double ($235) after markups at a traditional retailer. We're making space on our shoe rack already.
