The Best Comfortable Ballet Flats in 2024

For me, finding comfortable flats requires them to have a slight platform or heel just so it does not feel like I'm walking barefoot.

I like to look for flats that are made from good high quality leather so my feet don't sweat. Try to stear away from polyester or any material that are not moisture-wicking.

If you're someone with bunions or just have wider feet in general, try to find flats with a good amount of width so your feet don't feel constrained. Plush insoles that provide arch support is also something to look for if I am walking long distances for travel or throughout a city.

With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to finding ballet flats that provide both comfort and style, making the investment worth your while

The Iconic Mary Jane Ballet Flats

Mary Jane flats have a cute history behind them. They started off as simple children's shoes way back in the early 20th century, and they got their name from a character named "Mary Jane" in a popular comic strip who wore them. They were cute, straightforward, and quickly became a hit. Over time, they've grown up just like the rest of us, morphing from playground staples into high-fashion staples. Nowadays, Mary Janes come in all sorts of styles, from laid-back flats to heels, but they all keep that iconic strap across the top. I love a show with a little history behind it - makes it more special to wear.
