Cute Ballet Flat Women's Shoes For Men

Updated on October 14, 2009

What better shoe for a man who wants to feel light and feminine than a ballet slipper? Not an actual ballet slipper of course, that would be incredibly uncomfortable. No, I mean the women's fashion shoes known as 'ballet flats.'

Though ballet flats have seen a resurgence in recent times, they are hardly a new fashion item. Audry Hepburn was said to be partial to a nice pair of ballet flats and was there anyone more feminine than Audry Hepburn on the planet ever? I think not.

Ballet flats feature a very thin little heel or no heel at all, so they are perfect for men who want to wear a pretty women's shoe, but don't want to break an ankle doing it. Yes, high heels are gorgeous, but they're not all that suited for everyday wear unless you're a total fashion masochist. Ballet flats, on the other hand, can be worn for hours on end in total comfort.

The ballet flats I am featuring in today's article are all made by a company called London Sole, but you can find this kind of shoe in any shoe outlet, online or offline. London Sole makes such a wide range of pretty ballet flats, which makes them perfect for demonstrating the range of this classic women's shoe.

Henrietta Toe Cap

This is a ballet shoe which will definitely catch people's eye. I love the pink color and the almost quilted look these shoes have, not to mention the cute little black toe cap which provides an accent at the end of the shoe. Right off the mark we have a sweet pair of ballet flats which demonstrate that this style does not have to be plain or boring.


For those of you who enjoy a flashier look, these gold ballet flats would look great with a light evening dress. They have a glitz and a glamor to them, but I must admit that, to my mind at least, they sit on the side of trashy glamor. Not that there is anything wrong with that at all. If it weren't for trash glamor, half of the 80's would never have happened at all. (The fuzzy line running up the toe of the shoe is an inexplicable zipper, for those of you who were wondering.)


I adore these ballet flats. They have gorgeous red accents which run from heel to toe in a shiny red patent leather. Somewhat reminiscent of a Mary Jane, but much less bulky. The white inserts complete the look which will take you from sophisticate to school girl with a quick costume change.

      I am male and use these as a driving shoe. Very comfortable shoe, the drawstring tied in bow may be a bit much, but I tuck them with the shoe. The size 42 run as a male size 12, about 29 cm measured toe to heal on the inside.

      Good article Hope Thank you.

      Right now I'm wearing my back flats bought from Payless shoes for about C$30. The clerk was a little surprised when I asked to try them on and left me to it.

      They are man-made materials & not comfortable to wear all day, but they are light and comfortable around the house.

      BTW I'm wearing them with a short 'swim skirt' bought from L.L. Bean for around $12, and a blue flowered T-shirt passed on to me by wife, sitting beside me :-)

      I have a bronze colored pair that I wear to the farmer's market and other shopping destinations Saturday mornings. Mine aren't comfortable enough to wear all day. I change to a pair of sandals for long distance walking.

      For around home I have a pair of pink satin ballet style slippers from Isotoner. They have soft soles though, so they are not for outdoors.

      Yes Hope. once again I do agree with you. I have a couple of pares that I wear around the house. I also have a black pair that I wear when out running errands. I wear them when I stop for gas or run in to get a few thing at the store, etc. They feel very comfortable and I enjoy the fem look.
