Not Your Basic Leather Flatties



Ever wonder where to get comfy, elegant, leather ballet flats these days?

It’s hard.  For one thing, local stores doesn’t want to sell them anymore because the price point for their SRP is already too high for their clients so they tend to get more synthetic slip-ons because more end consumers tend to buy cheaper shoes. It’s sad, but that is the fact.

Sometimes it is good for the business, but it doesn't serve the market segment that wants more than these synthetic, poor quality flats and most of the time China produced items with bad fitting that one tend to throw away after a couple of months (if you’re lucky) which retailers have been feeding the market.

What if you want more value for your money? What if you want a pair of ballet flats that you want to wear for a few years, create memories with it because it’s durable and only requires a little polishing and you’re good to go? Something basic yet elegant to look at your feet, something that is so comfy and priced just right? What if you want ballet flats in black patent leather? Or even color flashing ones?

I had a client who wanted something classic, elegant, comfortable and made in kid leather, which has a beautiful fine grain. But the kid leather in the Marikina open market is steep at php130/sq ft, so we gave her something like these beautiful soft Napa cow leather flatties, and she launched her line successfully, too.



You’ll be proud to wear these to the office or school, or just cruising because it’s versatile. You’d surely get glimpses your way together with a pair of shorts, pants, jeans, skirts... you get the picture :).



I would say that this is a premium item, not because we produce it but because we used soft Nappa cow leather, interlining for super comfort & used leather for the insole.  Everything is leather except for the outsole. It is also unbelievably lightweight (no more tired and aching feet).



Interested to order? We continuously produce this staple, sizes currently available are  6, 7, 8, 9 while available colors  are Tomato (red), Coal (black), Syrup (beige), Eggshell (tan), Silver. We’ve marked this item down, at 50% off selling price is now only php900.00 plus parcel delivery. Send me a message at cla.Treadline@gmail.com. Who knows,  you might get lucky and get a much bigger discount :)

This is also the perfect partner for the leather wallet on sale. (link)


I’d like to know what you want for a ballet flat. Send me your thoughts, ladies. I’d really appreciate it.

    1. I don't have those sizes, they would have to be specifically produced for you. I sold these leather flats at 650.00/pair, that's factory price.
