We rounded up ballet flats from Amazon, Nordstrom, and more

Leave it to Katie Holmes to inspire your next spring style buy. 

While strolling around New York City recently, Holmes sported a chic look featuring a pair of classic black ballet flats. She styled them with a jersey jumpsuit and denim trench coat, but the versatile shoe can be worn so many ways. It’s no wonder Meghan Markle has been wearing ballet flats, as well as Nicky Hilton and Jennifer Lopez.

Sleek black balet flats are more elevated and dressier than sneakers or sandals and can be swapped in anywhere you would wear heels. If you don’t already own a pair of ballet flats, you’re missing out: So we went shopping for you. 

All the ballet flats on our list have been vetted for comfort, including arch support and slip-proof soles. Shop styles at Amazon, Nordstrom, Steve Madden, Schultz, Madewell, Rothys, Vivaia, and Zappos, starting at just $17.

At under $20, it’s hard to beat these classic ballet flats. The synthetic leather slip-ons have a thickened insole and arch support design for comfort. The shoes come in sizes 6–11 and in 17 colors. 

“For the price, this goes over my expectations -

,” one shopper wrote. “My heel doesn't come up in the back at all either.”

These flats look more expensive than their price tag, and they’re on sale. They are classic in every way thanks to a delicate bow, capped metal tassel, and squared-off toe. 

“I love that they don’t show toe cleavage as they sit a little higher up on foot,” explains a buyer. They’re also made of rich, soft leather with a cushy insole, which requires zero breaking in. Note: They run wide.

Steve Madden is known for its comfortable shoe styles, and these black leather flats are no exception. “I walked around in a city all day with them and didn’t end up with any blisters,” notes a buyer. And like the others on this list, they feature a tied bow along the roomy toe box, but this time with a slightly lifted heel. The rubber sole is durable and flexible with a decent cushion on the inside. If you border between two sizes, shoppers recommend sizing up a half-size. 

Deciding to invest in a pair of black ballet flats is easy. Now all you have to do is choose your favorite.
