You’ll be sporting two top S/S 2013 footwear trends in one with these silver metallic oxfords: the sci-fi look and flat oxford trend. Fun! The cutouts make them breezy for warmer temps. The tonal studs add extra textural interest. I had them on a client recently and they are comfortable. You will need to add an orthotic for arch support. The ‘Jayden’ is also available in this nude/off-white combo, and in black/black snake.

A lace-up oxford with unexpected detailing: a peep-toe version with airy cutouts along the foot and on the toebox. Nice and breezy for warmer temps! This shoe has a small 3/4″ heel, and a cushy footbed. You’ll find the beautiful rose gold to be a very versatile metallic. Fab with Summery skirts and frocks, and fun with BF jeans, shorts and trousers as well. Runs true to size.
Now this is a pretty gangster shoe! The marbled black and red leather is a striking colour combination. The lace-up closure and toe cap both contribute to the fun menswear-inspired vintage vibe. Wear them with wide-legged trousers, slouchy, tapered pants, cigarette pants, skinny or straight-legged jeans or give them a squizz with skirts and dresses. I have not had them on my feet yet, so I can’t vouch for the comfort level.
These Sam Edelman slipper flats are sublime. The New Nude Leopard Calfhair print is beautiful and packs a lot of punch – the lighter colour is lighter and more taupe than in the picture. Very comfy with the padded footbed. They run true to size, but will not fit a broader foot. The toe is quite pointy so beware if you have long feet. These little darlings are also available in a Snow Leopard print, equally fab!
Sparkle and animal print in one shoe. Fun! Great soft cushioning footbed, well made, and runs true to size. The piping rubs a little at first, so they might need to be worn in a few times, but the discomfort disappears quickly. Size up half a size to insert an orthotic. I bought these in spotted snow.
I launched into orbit when I tried these on. They are SO Audrey I can’t stand it. Comfortable, retro and oh so pretty. They are also available in a cream and tan animal print in top stores and those are the ones I want! They might run a little short due to the pointy toe so go up half a size (although I wear my true size here). They do not offer arch support, but my client popped in her super feet and was as happy as a clam.
These aren’t the softest of shoes but with a cushioning insole they feel a lot better. The soles are quite substantial which is unusual for ballet flats. You might need to go up half a size if you have long toes because the snipped toebox is snug. Also available in brown animal print. Adorable with leggings and tapered pants or jeans.
These are great for wider feet. They feel a little flat, so popping in an insole for extra cushioning comfort and an orthotic for additional arch support is worthwhile. They are also available in brown at Nordstrom. So arty! The distressed leather is fabulous. I’m tempted to purchase the brown because I have a pair of the black and whites already.
If you’re not all ruffled out yet, you might like these romantic little peds. The toebox is not as roomy as other Report ballet flats, but the vamp is cut quite low which might make it work. I particularly like the tomato red but the black is nice too.
These shoes are synthetic, but still fab. The bejeweled cluster is right on trend and charming. Soft, comfortable, very girly, and available in grey, black and eggplant. Be sure to read the rave reviews about the shoe on Nordstrom.
