Trends tend to be cyclical, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that ballet flats are coming back in style. If you’re looking for a pair of comfortable, stylish flats to add to your fall wardrobe (especially if you’ll be traveling soon and doing a lot of walking), you’ll want to check out Sarah Flint ASAP, since the brand offers a variety of gorgeous flats, including classic ballet styles and sleek pointed toe options. 

Celebrities like Meghan Markle and Margot Robbie have been spotted in the brand’s flats, boots, and heels, and even Travel + Leisure editors are fans of the shoes’ perfect balance of comfort and style. Due to the brand’s popularity and the rise of the ballet silhouette, you won’t want to wait to shop the must-have footwear before it inevitably sells out for the season.

Sacchetto Ballet Flats

The Sacchetto Ballet Flats are a modern take on the traditional style with a squared cap toe and button detail. The shoes are made with lightweight, flexible nappa leather that will never feel stiff on your feet, even as you walk all day. There’s also three millimeters of padding in the footbed for increased comfort, as well as leather outsoles with a rubber forepart to reduce slipping. You can shop them in seven colors and patterns, including black, tan, and light pink, as well as some seasonal options like checkered textile print with brown suede accents. 

Speaking to their stylish look, a reviewer said, “I feel like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's” when they wear the flats. They added, “They are great for my commute to work, for traveling, or for dressing up an outfit.”

And even though the Sacchetto is the most classic ballet flat style, Sarah Flint also offers a variety of beautiful flats with pointed toes, slingback styles, and more options to offer more variety (and comfort) to the staple flat silhouette. Keep reading for more on our favorites.

The Natalie flats feature a pointed toe with a unique asymmetrical bow on the toe. Like the other flats in Sarah Flint’s line, these shoes have three millimeters of padding and a rubber forepart on the outsoles to keep you comfortable and stable. These shoes come in 13 colors and patterns, including vachetta leather, calf hair, suede, and lamé materials in colors like saddle brown, fuchsia, and leopard print. 

Shoppers rave about the flats, with one writing, “The craftsmanship, the attention to details such as the wider toe box, extra cushion, rubber outer sole, it all just makes sense! Walking with these shoes on is like walking in the clouds.” Another reviewer called them “elegant” and said they have a “perfect fit.”

You can shop this style in light pink leather, gold floral jacquard, and brown embossed croc. 

Reviewers on Sarah Flint’s site have plenty of compliments for these shoes. One even wrote that “these are the most comfortable flats I own — while also being the most stylish. How is that possible?” Another shopper mentioned that they’re “recovering from ACL surgery post ski accident and cannot wear heels. They added, “These shoes have worked for business” and offer “great support.”

If you’re looking for a more formal flat that you can wear with dressier outfits, you’ll want to take a look at the Parker. It features both luxe suede and dotted mesh for a vintage-inspired look, as well as a pointed toe silhouette and adjustable ankle straps for a secure fit. Shop it in both black and navy variations, although sizes are selling out fast in this pair. 

One shopper emphasized just how versatile the flats are in their review. “This shoe was not only comfortable from the first wearing ([I] wore to a wedding) but so flattering. [It] can be dressed up or worn with jeans.”
