In 2020, those M&S leather flat ballet pumps flew off the shelves in double-quick time after being hailed as the perfect staple flat. With an almond toe and v-shaped dip, they looked high-end but were in fact only £35.
Now, the retailer has given the style an update for SS21. Featuring the same almond toe but with a slightly softer v-shaped dip for 2021, M&S’ Leather Flat Ballet Pumps are just as versatile as before but this time, feature a woven upper detail.
The touch of woven texture has already won us over by adding some intrigue to the easy slip-on style we fell in love with last year and even remind us a little of Sezane’s famous hand-braided Laura Courts.
These really are something of an easy-to-wear wardrobe staple and have even been endorsed by the UK College of Podiatrists for being easy and comfortable to walk in. A win-win!
The Leather Flat Ballet Pumps are also available in two colours, Stone and Metallic, and are priced at a reasonable £45 this year. Yes, that is £10 dearer than 2021 but then they are real leather!
Customers who got their hands on the 2020 version of the leather pumps said: ‘Stylish and extremely comfortable. Really good quality for the price’.
‘I now have 3 pairs in this style, they are so comfortable,’ agreed another, while a third added: ‘I have finally found a pair of ballet flats that I adore.’ One even said ‘they feel like you’re wearing slippers’ because they’d found them so snug. Music to our ears!
Currently, the Leather Flat Ballet Pumps are in stock in sizes 3 to 8, so make sure to get them before they’re gone as they did sellout multiple times in 2020.
