Sam Edelman Caper Ballet Flat Review

The weekend is finally here, and after a very long and busy week at work, I finally have some time to sit down and catch up on blogging! My last post featured pewter, our pick for the color of November. I’ve had these shoes for a little while now and I have to say that I am in love!

These flats are by Sam Edelman and this style comes in a great variety of colors and materials. I opted for the pewter boa. I originally bought them at Bloomingdales, but to my surprise I found them for nearly half the price at endless.com! I’ve bought several pairs of shoes from endless and I have never been disappointed by their speedy service and easy returns.

I can pair these flats with so many different outfits. I can wear them to work and on the weekends, so versatility is great. As far as sizing, the length is true to size, but they are a little on the narrow side, which thankfully wasn’t a problem for me. They are very comfortable and I can wear them all day without a hitch, but it did take about 3 or 4 days to break them in. Truth be told, the first day I wore them, I had a few painful blisters. Ouch! But I loved the shoes, so being the shoe-aholic that I am, I stuck it out. I wore them with bandages on my heels for a couple days, and finally, the shoes became comfortable enough to be worn all day, without band-aids.

So I suppose this is a little bit of a mixed review. If you’re like me and willing to spend some time breaking them in and maybe get a blister on the way, these flats are worth it. But if you’re looking for immediate comfort, I would pass it up.
