Lanvin Ballet Flats

You're probably thinking these don't belong in a frugalicious blog but they were a bargain. Got them at my favorite shop in Hampstead, a designer store selling nearly new stock for a fraction of retail.

Guessing a wealthy lady with small feet had unloaded her shoes because there were a heap of size 35 and 36 shoes in stock. I tried on a pair of Louboutins but they were too small (but they were hawt). And made a difficult choice out of four pairs of Lanvin ballet flats.

Bought the bordeaux plain leather because they were the comfiest. They have leather soles and wedge insoles for hidden support. I'm getting them Topied once I break them in a bit more.

I must sing out my praises for the leather. Lanvin flats have the thickest and supplest leather I've seen in shoes. They are beautifully made and will last a long time.

A tip on sizing for the plain leather flats. I suggest going up half a size.


  1. Those look really nice! They look comfortable and stylish! :) The colour is lovely too! :D
    Great blog post!

  2. Thanks Bex! I put thin soles on these so I can wear them like crazy now :)
