If you prefer leather shoes, we have Aeyede slip-ons, minimalistic and elegant.
We couldn’t help but add Prada’s new Origami leather flats with a decidedly futuristic approach, featuring floral and geometric toe details.
Studded flats for a rock-inspired look.
Studded flat shoes are a rock version of shoes, very romantic and sophisticated cut; perfect for even darker personalities: it can be worn with a long denim skirt and a leather jacket, for example…….., or with flared trousers and an oversized men’s shirt, as Francesca Ragazzi teaches us.
The flats worn by Francesca Ragazzi are Valentino Garavani’s Rockstuds, whimsical and chic thanks to their easy cut with tonal straps and studs, complete with a large bow at the toe.
The Steve Madden flats are crafted from leather effect leather and feature a slip-on fit that leaves the foot open, the instep remains open and the toe box has a classic design. Silver stud details at all ends of the shoe, both front and back, keep it simple yet minimalist. If you want more classic flats, then H&M flats with a wide strap are the right choice.
Mary Jane shoes for a formal look
Strappy ballerinas, also known as Mary Janeare undoubtedly the most classic model, always appreciated for its simplicity and ability to convey elegance without any obligation; Drawing inspiration from Alexa Chung, you can wear flats in full print a more animalistic look with straight-leg jeans, or a more classic black model to offset an already rather sophisticated and modern look.

We like it because, unlike more well-known models, it has a glossy finish almost reminiscent of vinyl (a detail that we will also find in the fall-winter 2023 2024 boots). On the other hand, if you’re looking for essential flats, The Row flats have a decidedly neo-retro look and obviously have the typical buckle strap detail of a shoe. Mary Jane.
Ballerinas in the mesh, which have become favorites of the stars
Also called mesh ballerinas, you could say that these “no-shoe” shoes have become a must-have for the summer season thanks to their minimal yet captivating cut – and not at all obvious.
Mesh ballet flats are also among the most worn shoes by stars and style icons such as Elsa Hosk and Jennifer Lawrence who wear them in casual outfits due to their comfort and unique versatility. Just pair them with Elsa’s socks and they’ll be perfect for winter too.
Alternatively, we also opted for the Pīferi model, with pink details (including a strap on the instep) that break up the shoe’s dark line, making it more romantic.
Gladiator flats for a stylish look
Gladiator ballet shoes are a much more complex model than previous models, characterized by many straps at the instep to the ankles; shoes that emphasize the leg and slim the figure.
Both ballerinas we have chosen have a triple strap: the first from Zara, the cut is flat, the finish is opaque. The Carel Paris model, on the contrary, is made of leather, has a glossy finish and has a comfortable 3 cm heel.
Elasticated ballerinas for a practical look.
In full style ballet, elastic ballerinas are one of the most popular ultra-flat models, as they are especially versatile (but, above all, comfortable); they adapt to every need and are perfect for wearing in both summer and winter.
Aimee Song wears one of the hottest styles of the moment, the Miu Miu flats in semi-gloss black leather: the elastic strap is comfortable and very practical, and it has a durable rubber sole that makes them really comfortable. The Mango model is a worthy alternative if you’re looking for something less demanding but with a very similar design; The main difference lies in the finish of the shoe, this time in matte and satin.
Tabi flats for a modern look
An unexpected trend, and the most recent of all, are the Tabi flats: a modern cut made famous by Maison Margiela, who have made this shoe cut iconic in all its variations, from boots to our favorite dancers.
The first street style look uses a classic ballerina by Maison Margiela, with a tabi toe and matte leather; Instead, Dua Lipa chooses a model with a more sophisticated but always minimalist cut, with an ankle closure and a silver buckle, as well as a distinctive logo with a single contrast stitching.
