Simple, Black Ballerinas

I’m sure you’ll all be familiar with the fact that even finding what should be simple shoes can be tricky when your feet don’t fit the standard mould. Your friends walk into shops and come out with their favourite of several options without giving it a second thought, while you spend months hunting for just one pair that are comfortable enough to walk in.

Today, I’m going to highlight a few pairs of classic black ballerinas that I think could be winning options, depending on your budget and preferences. A staple shoe for any female, especially those who have to dress in work attire but also spend a lot of the day on their feet. If you have any other great options, please do chip in, in the comments!

New Look, Black Elasticated Pumps, £12.99

I don’t think any of the options are too crazily priced to put them out of the league of most people, but hopefully that’s given you some inspiration if you’re looking for an easy to wear black ballerina!

Happy shopping x

Dune: Harvest Elasticated Flats

Well hello again! I promised you in my last post that I have been out and about trying various shoes and the next installment comes from Dune. I was in my local store trying on some awesome shoes, (post coming soon) when I spotted these and thought I’d test them out.

The shoes in question are the below; a pretty cute looking pair of practical pumps if ever there were!

As you can see, these beauties come in black and silver – for what it’s worth, my money is on the silver pair for summer. They’re just so versatile!

The higher price tag and the Dune label means that you get more than your average high street shoe out of these and they are made from gorgeous, soft leather. For me, that’s a bonus as leather moulds to your feet so much better than synthetic materials do.

Anyhow, I tried these on as Dune are usually fairly narrow and the elasticated back had me all hopeful. They are a good, snug fit on my feet but I found that they were just a smidge short. I have quite big toes so I had that whole “toe sticking up into the leather making a toe shape” thing going on. I hate that! If you’ve got more delicate, feminine toes than my beasties, these might just be perfect for you though. They really are great shoes and I definitely recommend trying them on if you’re looking for your next comfy but pretty pair of shoes.

Anyone else had any shoe based successes recently? x
