“ Brand: Asos / Type: Ballerina „
These are just typical, simple flats - easy to slip on and are completely flat apart from the tiny raised heel on the sole. They're named ballerina pumps but to be honest are just like any other kind of pumps/flats - not sure where the ballerina comes from!? They are really pretty and delicate looking though so maybe that's why. They're a suede material and really soft, i'd compare them to a casual looking day-slipper! Obviously they don't look like a slipper but they're as comfortable. They're average looking flats and are a simple style; nothing out of the ordinary. The toe is slightly pointed adding a slightly vintage look to them and they fit well, giving good support to my feet. In my usual Primark flats i can usually feel pavement/grass, but these have a nice thick sole and are much better quality. They're extremely versatile and are both casual and smart, they go with pretty much any outfit, jeans, tights, skirts etc and still look great. Ideal to wear in summer with shorts or a skirt and they're nice in winter too with knitted leggings or a pair of jeans!
I ordered these from the Asos website and they arrived in a factory sealed bag.
Options and Sizing:
These shoes are available in numerous colours; Grey, mink, black, ivory and navy. Sizing starts at a UK 3 and goes all the way up to a UK 9.
Really comfy! Great shoes to wear when walking around throughout the day at work or college etc as they let my feet breathe very well and have a cushiony feel to them when i'm wearing them! They fit like a glove too and don't rub my feet or anything like that!
They've lasted really well so far and i've had them for over 6 months now! The sole is firmly in place, unlike a number of my other flats from various other shops! They've not got a stain or rip on them atall and look as new to be honest even though i wear them almost daily! Obviously if you were to wear them to walk your dogs in they wouldn't last well, though! They're best when worn indoors, on dry pavement etc as i'd never dream of washing them due to the soft material.
Price and Value:
I thought they were great value at £25, although i'm used to paying £6ish for my usual flats these were worth it; the quality shines through and you can tell they're good quality! I'd definetly reccomend them to anyone who wants a pair of flats that'll last for a while.
I don't very often wear flat shoes. Partly because they make me look short and also because they don't seem to very exciting. I do occasionally wear flat shoes when my feet need a rest. These ASOS pumps caught my eye as I was browsing the site.
The shoes are completely flat and made from leather (suede). They come in greyish/blue, mink, black, navy and dark coral colours. The soles are comfortable but not very soft. The shoes are soft though and I didn't experience any problems with blisters. The front is a curved point so it isn't angular or curved. This is why I really liked them. Most of the flat shoes have a curved toe and I think my feet are better suited to a more angular design. They are available in sizes 4-8 so not very well catered for the extreme sizes.
I wear them with casual clothes although I think that they could be worn as work shoes as they are smart. An important thing to note is that suede needs be treated well to prevent damage and fix damage. I leave the shoes in a dark and cold place to prevent damage and if they get wet I soak up the excess moisture with a clean towel.
I bought them for a really good price at £25 but with 20% discount they were only £20. The shoes do not feel or look cheap and they are durable (so far anyway). They are available from the ASOS website only with a delivery charge of £3.95 but sometimes they have free delivery if you spend over a certain amount or as a promotional offer.
