The trusty ballet flat is here to stay in 2024 whether you like it or not. 

For some, the term ballet flat may give jarring flashbacks to 2012, when ballet flats and skinny jeans were a match made in heaven. For others, the trusty yet simple go-to has been worn to death for years and the thought of a new and improved version may seem impossible. 

But we have great news. The ballet flat has had a major revamp this year and even the most ballet-flat-opposed will be amazed.

Intrigued? So are we! 

We have to admit, when people first started talking about ballet flats again we *may* have rolled our eyes and ignored the “new trend,” much like we did for skinny jeans and poplin shirts. 

Some styles deserve to stay in the past, and the image of ballet flats with bows was just not a fashion trend we ever thought we would be wearing again. 

But obviously, we were wrong and have collected some of the most stylish (and comfy!) ballet flats to shop right now.
