Ballet flats have been around for awhile now. And I think most girls own at least a pair, well, maybe except for me. I’m just going to come out and say this, but I’ve never really been a fan of the ballet flat. No matter how I style it, it just does not look good on me! However, tons of girls wear the these flats and it looks great on them. I just don’t think they were made for me. But before you go and make up your mind about this shoe, the ballet flat has gone and reinvented itself all thanks to the designer brand Miu Miu.

Miu Miu changed the whole game with a pair that will make you feel exactly like a ballerina, and a pretty cool one at that. Imagine your regular ballet flat, now reimagined it with a cool set of buckles and mismatched black and checkered straps that tie up at the ankle. This new shoe trend has been written about on every major fashion blog and they are now showing up on the feet of fashion bloggers and celebrities everywhere.Take a look at the newly reinvented ballet flat.

These edgy flats are definitely a statement piece. Would I rethink the ballet flat now? Well… I just might. I love when something feminine and sweet goes grunge; a rock n roll ballerina. And when an everyday staple (like a chic ballet flat), transforms into a showstopper – it’s got to be bomb!

BandraRoad Tip:

If you want to freshen up your ballet flats but can’t afford the insanely high price, then just try to make these at home. It’s the perfect DIY for a lazy Sunday. Just go to a crafts store and purchase some black and checkered ribbons and re-use belt buckles to re-create the must-have shoe of the season.
