Grappling, grappling.....I adore, LOVE Chanel. My biggest weakness with this brand is the detailed jewelry and the slippery chains on the bags. The jackets have me by the throat as well, but with their comatose price point I'm able to hold off from buying any at full retail. I snatch one here or there from sales or resale shops.
So now the flats? What to do.....I acquired a hardly used pair from the bay and they are spectacular..However they were only 250 dollars (as oppose to the 950 the Tweed flats normally bring)? In the mean while I have a metallic gold lamb pair from Chanel up in my closet ready for return; they are 600 dollars? The metallic leaves me queasy.
I also have a pair of Bally ballet flats (on sale) that IMHO are made so much better then my Chanel's. These Bally's were priced at 180 dollars.and on sale.
I want at least one pair of Chanel flats and now I have them and at a hefty discount. I think that's the only way I want to buy Chanel flats..
Well, its depends. Are they classic and a statement piece, yes. Are they comfortable, not really. I bought a pair of brown ones when they were $575 or so a few years ago and sold them to a friend because they weren't that comfortable. Maybe because i didn't broke into them long enough. Plus I have flat feet too so that doesn't help.
But my sister bought me a pair of white onem the same as joviscott. I love them because they are beautiful. But if you're looking for comfort, with that price point, its better to buy Lanvins.
so worth it. =) They are comfy and classic. Yes, they are way above average in terms of prices compared to other flats but so are the rest of the shoes. Chanel shoes are chanel shoes - they will come at a premium price because of the brand. There are plenty of heels that are comfy for a fraction of the price too - but it all depends on how much you value them. To be honest though, I spend more on comfort than looks - so you and I might not share the same priorities when it comes to spending a lump some of money. I wear my flats ALL the time but they hold up very well. Other comfortable flats I'd have at a lower price normally die after 16 months. =/
They have a suede panel on the inside where your heel hits (the classic captoe ballerinas) so you will NEVER get blisters the way you normally do with other new shoes! The comfiest shoes I've ever had. LOVE them!
