I recently got ballet flats from Bared. Super comfy. They have an ankle strap which at first I thought was weird but it actually holds the shoe in place so your foot can relax - I didn’t realise how much my feet automatically “held on” to normal flats, even when I would have sworn they were a perfect fit.

Walnut Melbourne ballet flats are an absolute dream. Going to check out bared!
Leggings - I love bamboo body. They're a bit too stretchy round the waist though so I recommend a few sizes smaller than usual. Also neither of these suggestions is cheap.

Merrells ballet flats, I think the style is called Lorelei. Super comfy and with a proper walking sole.

I wear Human brand ballet flats.
I'm onto my 2nd or 3rd pair now. I like how they've got a decent amount of shoe over my toes, I hate toe cleavage! They've also got a good sole, too thin and my feet and ankles hurt.

I know this is useless information but I get my ballet flats made in Seminyak Bali at a bootmaker.
Beautiful leather...cut to fit my unevenly sized feet and made up in 48 hours for $35.

I like Walnut too but they tend to not have my size often enough.

I like Walnut Melbourne and (surprisingly) Mimco. The Mimco ones are expensive but I always get great pairs heavily discounted.

I’m another that avoids Bared because of the ankle strap.

The ankle strap is removable if you really don’t like it. But I do really recommend it. It’s also invisible under jeans, pants, etc.

I wear Bloch ones mostly though I have alot of different brands. I find them good.and most comfortable out of all. I did order walnut due to hearing good reviews from people and they weren't for me, ran small and generally uncomfortable so had to send them back.

i like Repetto for their soft leather and pretty colours ...i can’t find many stores in sydney that stock them though so i tend to order online - but be aware - i have found you need to go a full size up.

Hush puppies for shoes (they have the width I bed that makes them super comfy)
Target for leggings. Uniqlo if you’re skinnier than I am.

i’ve ordered them from mytheresa.com in the past.

there is an actual repetto website, but i’m not sure if they deliver to Australia.

Myer sometimes stocks them, but not all the time, and not a full range.

I adore my my Repettos - I don’t think I’ll ever buy another brand.

ETA: you can buy them from DJs and they are cheaper than in Myers for some strange reason (exactly the same shoe, not on sale....)

I always wears flats all my life and wears Jeggings/ Leggings a lot.

My best go to brand for flats are Marc Joseph, I used to buy them from the USA, David Jones now stocks them.

For leggings and Jeggings, Marks and Spencer and Uniglo are recommended.

One more suggestion - I swear by Midas Berlin flexi-soles.

My feet are difficult - flat and wide with bunions. These are the only ballet flats I find comfortable because they are soft and cover my bunion. They also look great. I have them in rose gold and black patent. Think I might be about to order another pair!
