These Will Persuade You Back Into Ballet Pumps Again

Oh, ballet pumps, we've missed you!

It's been a long time since the balletic flat shoes have been en vogue, what with loafers, brogues, slides, slippers, mules and pretty much every other flat shoe you could think of taking a more prominent place on the feet of the coolest. But thanks to new, highly romantic and super-luxe-looking incarnations coming from the likes of Miu Miu, Marni and Gianvito Rossi, it's only a matter of time until the high street follows suit and starts upping their ballet-pump offering. It's also only a matter of time until you go back to your old footwear friend.

However, it's not 2007, and no more is it sufficient to stick on any ol' worn-out black pair—your 2.0 versions require extra detailing or at least a satin finish or ribbon lacing like a proper prima ballerina. Scroll down to see our top choices for this comeback shoe trend…

Not a ballet pump convert? Then shop from the sandals that hit all of summer's key trends instead.
