First created in 1947, Repetto ballet flats are the original, classic flat. I once had a pair that a certain puppy (who shall remain nameless and whom I love very much) decided to eat. I guess the leather was soft enough that it resembled a dog treat. Whatever the reason, I am lusting after another pair of these lovely flats. I would say they are so soft that they feel like butter but I’m not really in the habit of putting butter on my feet. Suffice it to say, they are super soft and oh-so-comfortable.
