Reformation’s Bethany Ballet Flats Are Widely Loved—Here’s Why

Reformation's Bethany Ballet Flats Are Widely Loved—Here's Why 7


In seasons gone I used to count down the days until sandal season arrived. Eager to embrace the freedom of the lightweight shoe, the fleeting months when sandals were king were some of my favourite of the year. This season, however, a new springtime shoe has become the object of my affection, and in my opinion, it’s actually far more versatile than the strappy sandals I’ve loved before.

Of course I’m talking about the enduring ballet flats trend. Offering the same flat-footed comfort as its sandal sisters, ballet flats pull ahead by means of adding the polish and finesse to an outfit that strappy sandal simply can’t compete with. With a deep love for the trending shoe, I’ve made it a personal mission to track down some of the best in the market. To do so I’ve consulted with colleges in the Who What Wear office, as well as spent many an hour online gathering information. My research led me straight to the webpage of Reformation‘s Bethany Ballet Flats.

Influencer styles the Reformation Bethany ballet flats in silver.

At a mid-range price of £268 (or £298 for the studded pair) the rounded toe flats come in nine different styles spanning colour and fabric variations. Including a metallic silver shade—as styled by @theindiaedit above—a deep merlot pair, black and white mesh styles and stud-embellished types, Reformation’s style range is larger than most. With a full-coverage design that covers the toes and a thick strap securing the shoe in place, these neat slippers host the exact ballet flat shape that I find comfortable and most wearable.
