Friend and client Phoebe, who you might remember from our Talbot shopping adventures, was wearing a pair of delicious ballet flats last weekend. Phoebe is nine months pregnant with adorable swollen feet, so when she said these flats were comfortable, I was sold. Phoebe has the silvery cream pair and they looked amazing with her skinny jeans, empire T and cropped chartreuse cardigan. Like Patience, Phoebe makes it look easy to be stylish even as she’s about to pop.

Intrigued by these Rocket Dog flats, I ordered the black and cream checked pair. They are indeed comfortable, and should work for a wider feet too. Not as soft as Me Too’s or Clarks shoes, but they’re also half the price at $44.95 and made of synthetic fabric (great for vegans). Adding a cushioning insole really helps, as does breaking them in a little.

I can’t decide whether I should size down because they feel a little roomy. I’m putting them through their paces so we’ll see if they make the 8-hour mark, but so far so good.
