Sneakers will always have a place in our hearts, but after several season spent wearing chunky shoes, sporty styles, and footwear that’s anything but feminine, well, you can’t blame a woman for itching after something more girly.
Now, flat footwear is taking a turn—namely, lace-up ballet flats which are primed to takeover slip-on sneakers and pool slides this spring. The style’s a little more polished, perfect for work or weekend, and comes with a seal of approval from industry It-girls and fashion bloggers.
We first fell for the look on the Michael Kors Spring 2015 runway and continued to covet the ballet lace-ups when Tibi introduced a pair to its Pre-Fall 2015 offering. Predictably, high street stores were quick to follow, and Topshop, Anthropologie, and more brands have since made the trend a whole lot more affordable–which is good news for you, shopper.
Ahead we rounded up 18 lace-up ballet flats that will seriously make you want to kick off your sneakers this Spring–keep clicking to keep shopping.
