Repetto is a French brand that specializes in ballet shoes. The brand was started in 1947 and continues to be one of the top names in the style, as their products can be found all over the world. However, they're not all that easy to find, as you're unlikely to stumble upon a pair at your nearest Payless. In the following, you'll find out where you can snatch up a pair.
Saks Fifth Avenue
Many high-end department stores carry a few Repetto products, including Saks Fifth Avenue. They currently stock the Repetto Patent Leather Ballet Flats, which sell for $265. Coming in black or grey, these simple flats have grosgrain trimming, a padded insole and a leather lining. They also have a small on tone bow at the vamp and a short black stacked heel. Saks also sells the Metallic Ballet Flats, which have the same design at the Patent Leather model but have a bright grosgrain trim and come in bronze, gold or silver.
SSENSE is a cutting edge online boutique based in Canada, and they currently carry the Repetto BB Jersey Ballet Flats. These puppies retail for $255 but now sell for only $178. The flats have a grey jersey body with a round toe and the signature petite Repetto bow on vamp. They also have a grey grosgrain trim and a thin leather sole with a contrasting brown stacked heel.
Diana Boutique and Kirna Zanette
Diani Boutique stocks the Distressed Ballet Flat in Navy, which goes for $260. This one has a dark blue-pebbled leather upper, a softly rounded toe, a thin leather insole, and of course the small bow above the toe and darker blue grosgrain piping. Kirna Zanette sells a similar model in the BB Ballet Flat, which comes in an elegant red wine leather. That one has all the standard Repetto features and goes for $280.
