Who Makes The Best Ballet Flats? 13 Lucky Editors Weigh In

"As a die-hard ballet flat fan, I've tried pretty much every brand under the sun (Repetto, London Sole, Tory Burch—seriously, try me). The best I've found for everyday wear are from Bloch; not only are they available in tons of fun colors and styles (the patent cap-toes are my fave!), but they hold up surprisingly well on the mean streets of NYC, are delightfully cushiony on the inside and generally don't require resoling. That said, for a slightly dressier flat, you can't beat Lanvin. The teensy hidden heel flatters your leg, and they just feel so incredibly luxe." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor

A good pair of ballet flats are basic and timeless; they'll last you for several years. They're comfortable and don't cause blisters; they match every possible outfit. But ballet flats also aren't a one-size-fits-all kind of deal—because dancer-inspired shoes cut so close to the foot and everyone's feet are shaped differently, finding a version with just the right width, support and arch coverage requires some trial-and-error. To help you find your perfect ballet flats, we've rounded up the top nine brands that our editors swear by, with options ranging from a $32 budget buy to a designer option so exclusive you can't buy it online. But regardless of which choice fits you best, they're all worth shelling out for, since you'll probably be wearing it until, well, you order a second pair.
