I really like these shoes, but my SO hates them. He usually has the same taste as me, but we differ on this shoe. Now that I think about it, I think I only like them because they have the stripes that I love. I need some help on these: How many of you have bought these ladie ballet flats? How many are considering buying them? How many passed? And if so, for what reasons? Most of all, what can you wear these with and not look 'clownish' for the lack of a better word?
