Yosi Samra Silver Leather Ballet Flats
The Yosi Samra fold-up flats have been catching my eye ever since a huge shipment of them arrived at Fine Finds. Last weekend, I finally bought a pair in silver. They truly are the Holy Grail of ballet flats. The elasticized trim ensures they'll stay on your feet, while the unadorned flats boggle the mind with their potential for customization. Pin some vintage brooches or shoe clips on the toes, or thread grosgrain ribbon through the loop in the back and wind it around your ankles for a ballerina-inspired look. Of course, these flats also look great on their own, especially if you buy them in one of the bright blue, purple, or red suede fabrications.
I also love the portability of them, how they fold up in half and they come with their own silvery satin pouch. Imagine how great they would be for travel, or for those long evenings or special occasions where you're dying to get out of your sky-high heels by the time you leave. Oh, and did I mention that they're very sturdy and well-constructed as far as ballet flats go? At $69 Cdn (or $55 US if you purchase them through the website), Yosi Samra flats are a sound investment.
