The Look for Less: Repetto Leather Ballet Flats

Repetto's classic ballet flats are known for their soft leather and flattering low profile. The pair shown here is $250 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Gap has been carrying these genuine leather ballet flats for a couple seasons now and they are the best Repetto-inspired shoes I've seen on a budget. I own a pair and they are amazingly comfortable, especially after I added some gel insoles. Plus, they have that perfect ballet-flat look that's so hard to find. Get them for $39.95 in black, bronze, metallic silver or blue at

This is only the second pair of rollable flats I've tested but Flats-to-go have become my new favorites because A) they're comfy B) they're cute and C) they're cheap! Just $8.99 a pair! That's $1 less than the Rollasole Portable Ballet flats sold at
