I purchased two pairs of j.crew ballet flats in my usual size 7.5 (as well as two pair of Minnetonka mocs in 7.5) I had to return all of them for 8's. In other shoes I'm still a 7.5, so I think that because ballet flats (and mocs) run slender - my wider foot (in the toe box area) makes me have to size up.
So anyone else like me? What ballet flats are good for those of us with a wider ball of the foot area?
I have wide feet, and had a great black pair of Juicy flats, but they ended up hurting my foot. I just ordered a pair of tieks, so hopefully those will work! I've heard wonderful things about them.
Just thought I'd update on the Tieks - I think I'm obsessed. I was a little concerned at first because when I initially put them on part of the elastic in the front pinched the top of my foot a little, but after breaking them in they fit like a glove! I have wide "duck" feet (wide by toes and narrow by heel) and these have been the only flats that have been comfortable for me. I now have 5 pairs
