Gigi Hadid is a fan of the hybrid shoe.
For the last couple of seasons, ballet flats have become a dominant staple in our comfort-first wardrobes. But out of all of the options to shop, there’s one specific blast from the past that’s poised to reign supreme throughout 2023. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to properly reintroduce you to the Tory Burch flat.
We can all recall when, in the early 2000s, The Reva—a simple round-toe silhouette that came in every color under the rainbow—dominated. It was the shoe. Now, 16 years later, it’s Tory Burch’s hybrid ballet loafer that’s approaching the footwear throne. The updated style combines the timeless charm of the ballerina with the sophistication of a loafer, making it a luxury essential that feels very much of the moment.
Gigi Hadid recently stepped out not once but twice in the two-in-one shoe. During Milan Fashion Week, she styled a black pair featuring a gold emblem with a polished oversized blazer, tailored gray trousers, and a T-shirt. And, in New York City, she modeled an effortlessly cool way to style the same exact pair: with a leather jacket layered over a green sweater, black jeans, and a coordinating shirt. Both looks are proof that the versatile shoe can be worn with just about anything, from a professional office look to a chill airport outfit.
That versatility is exactly what makes the updated silhouette so special. You can often see models on the runway striding in the label’s comfy flats while wearing beautiful dresses, which proves that they’re elevated enough to wear on special occasions too. And what’s even better? There are so many colors to choose from. Read on to shop Tory Burch’s ballet loafer, which is sure to dominate all year long.
