Summer is quickly approaching and that means it’s time for sandals and flats. I love ballet flats. Ballet flats have been my go-to shoe for about three years and I don’t know how my feet survived 30-something years in something other than ballet flats or wedge sandals during the summer. Actually, I do. I wore either my black or tan pair of Earth mary janes for years and I still love them but they’re too hot to wear in the summer and maybe they are a little worn out. Ballet flats come in a lot of styles and colors. Some have bows, some are quilted and some are embellished with studs! I’ll show you some of my favorite embellished ballet flats another day. 🙂
Below are five pairs of breathable ballet flats. These flats either have a breathable lining and/or insole. You can feel confident that your feet won’t sweat in these shoes this summer. I hate summer foot sweat which is why I also wear wedge sandals in the summer.
I’ve shown you ballet flats for little girls, now it’s time to show you breathable ballet flats for women.
1 – Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet – Hush Puppies are a tried and true shoe brand. The breathable lining and a cushioned insole are sure to keep your feet comfy and cool this summer.
2 – Patagonia Maha Breathe – I love the Atoll Aqua color as shown above, but these flats are available in 6 colors in case you’re not fond of aqua shoes.
3 – J. Crew Quorra Ballet Flats – Look close and you’ll see Xs and Os on these sunwashed aqua ballet flats. I think this color is really pretty but if aqua shoes don’t excite you you’ll be happy to know that these J. Crew ballet flats are available in four other colors.
4 – UGG Kellis Crystal – These flats don’t necessarily look breathable but from what I’ve read the breathable leather lining helps fight overheating feet and if these flats are true to the UGG brand they are very comfortable.
5 – Reebok ‘True Studio’ Ballet Flat – While these aren’t my favorite color, they look comfortable and definitely breathable. These ballet flats are probably best for yoga or around the house.
