Tory Burch Reva Ballerina Flat Review

Fall is here, and about 2 weeks ago I was in dire need of a pair of cute, durable ballet flats to accentuate my feminine Fall clothing pieces. I cant wear boots and heels everyday, so a good pair of flats were greatly needed in my wardrobe. I wanted a pair of cute, chic, & comfortable flats that I know will last me years without falling apart. I couldn't rely on cheap shoes from places like Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe because I know they wont last long, and they aren't that comfortable either. So I started to think about Designer flats. After all the research I did on style, comfort, and durability I stumbled upon the Tory Burch Reva Ballerina Flats. I had my eyes on the black pair with the gold Tory Burch logo on the toe classy and cute! My style is kind of classy conservative chic, so I know these flats would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. They retailed for $195 before tax, which is a pretty reasonable price for something that will last long. It came up to $212 with free shipping! I ordered my shoes from on October 6th and received them October 12th.

I love how the flat is all Black and the Gold logo just adds a very nice classy spark. They're really comfortable! I ordered them in my normal size and all my toes sat snuggled in the flat. My pinky toe wasn't rubbing against the shoe, and the bottom of my foot felt like I was walking on clouds with the soft padding they added to the soles. BUT let me warn you...the elastic part in the back that hugs your ankles can be a KILLER if you're thinking of walking around a lot. I wore my flats for the first time to school this past Monday, and everything was going well for the first few hours. Then I went to the Doctor, then to the mall, then to Staples, then to the Beauty Supply store. By the time I was walking to get inside my house, I felt like someone slit the back of my ankles open, (sorry to be so graphic). So if you're thinking of walking around a lot with these, I wish you luck! If you work in the office, bring an extra pair of shoes just in've been warned! Also, be careful not to walk on rocky pavement or pointy objects because the leather of the flat is very soft and gets scratched easily. I have a small light scratch on them already :( But nothing noticeable. Overall, I love them!
