Spring Must Have: Anna Ballet Flat

Meet our favorite spring shoe, the Anna Ballet Flat. A timeless staple, the ballet flat is a versatile shoe that is a must for your shoe wardrobe. We’ve used our attention to detail and handcrafted approach to design a flat that feels as good as it looks. Integrating several comfort features, such as padding, premium materials, and flexibility, we kept the wearer in mind so you can wear them from work to play and beyond. Read on to get to know more about Anna.

RAISING THE BARRE

We’ve all been there. You see a cute pair of flats assuming they’ll be easy on your feet, only to encounter rubbing or stiffness. With Anna, we specifically designed the ballet flat for support and comfort. We utilize the same craftsmanship we’ve been known for as with our other shoe styles.

Each piece is carefully constructed one step at a time. Leather and fabric pieces are cut before being gathered and hand stitched. The topline of the Anna is elasticized. This is an important feature, as it makes the flat easy to slide on, stays snug on the feet, and provides flexibility with every step. Silky grosgrain is stitched together for the lining of the shoe. The interior also features a fully padded insole. For extra support, a foot cushion is provided at the heel, stamped with the Minnetonka logo. Then a lightweight and flexible rubber outsole is adhered to the bottom. The result is an elevated ballet flat that stays gentle on your feet.

ENDURING STYLE

We’ve kept the delicate and classic look of the ballet flat when designing Anna. It’s an iconic style that echoes back to grace of Audrey Hepburn, while also being enjoyed by trendsetters today. It’s easy to see why it has had enduring appeal. Ballet flats are perfect for when you want to take a break from heels, but also want something more polished than a sneaker or sandal. It’s an elegant and chic addition to your work wear, jeans, or dresses. Especially with Anna, you can go from one activity to the next while staying comfortable.

We have multiple ways to wear the Anna. Choose from one of our luxe leather options in White, Black, Blush, Distressed Charcoal, or Chocolate Leather.  Each shoe is embellished with a small silver Minnetonka charm at the back.
