Fashion Musings – Another Pair of Ballet Flats

by Valerie on March 16, 2009 · 6 comments

Today, I found myself in Downtown DC 45 minutes early for an event I was attending – and I was just a block from Macy’s, so I stopped by their shoe section. You see, I was in dire need of another pair of flats for work – yes, I practically have a uniform – pantsuits and ballet flats – but it works for me. I also wanted to see if the down economy really translated to amazing deals in shoes – my theory is that the down economy means better deals on clothes, but not so much on shoes and purses – usually deals on shoes and purses tend to be in very improbable colors too.

That might be changing, because look at what I found at 40% off:
Ok, they were not the most amazing deal there *but* these are Cole Haan shoes with the Nike Air cushioning technology – and I never find Cole Haan Nike Air shoes on sale in my size well, pretty much, ever. So this was very exciting for me.

Ironically, these shoes are another example of a “winterized ballet flat” as well – though this would be a more dressed up version – you can’t tell from the picture, but the soles are rubber and have decent tread. And, they really live up to the Cole Haan Nike Air co-branding – much more comfortable than the average pair of dress shoes or ballet flats.

P.S. The picture is from Zappos (where they are not yet on sale) but I just checked the Cole Haan site and this style appears to be at 35% off.

I love these shoes. I’ve tried them on several times but haven’t bought them yet bc of the price. Also, I have a bad back and I have four pairs of ballerina Delman’s in my closet from my days of practicing law collecting dust bc they have no support. These might be the solution for me…I may have to run to Macy’s in (gasp!) Herald Square to get a pair on sale! thanks for the tip!

Carolyn – and so comfortable!!

Chessa – you know, I never understood why people said Delmans were so comfortable – they don’t have any support! These are such a better alternative.

Ballet flats are part of my every day uniform too. Those CH flats are adorable! I have a pair of the Nike Air black pumps from them and I love them!
