Even if you’ve never set foot in a dance studio, ballet flats are a style staple because they’re the perfect mix of dressy and casual. Whether you prefer a true flat or a ballet-inspired heel, it’s hard to go wrong with this classic silhouette. It’s both feminine and elegant, and Steve Madden has a full line of ballet-inspired styles to fill your shoe wardrobe.
If you’re looking for a classic wear-everywhere shoe, it’s hard to beat a ballet flat. Try a traditional slipper in a metallic leather or colorful textile for a fun take on the style, or keep it simple with a neutral or textured leather pair.
Our embellished ballet flats elevate the standard look to something special. Fun fabrics, bead details, grommets, ankle straps, and buckles can all turn a simple flat into a statement. For a polished look, try a D’Orsay-inspired ballet flat.
Do you want a ballet-style shoe with a bit of a lift? Then try ballet heels, which have the same shape as a slipper with a low heel. Pick up an elegant slingback or Mary Jane, or keep it simple with a shiny patent pump.
Ballet flats pair perfectly with your favorite tights or hosiery and no-show socks, but try pairing them with a cute pair of ballet socks for a super fun and trendy vibe. Delicate ruffles play up the feminine flair, while tall, ribbed socks are perfect for scrunching at the ankles to create that leg warmer look.
