First Sneak Peek at the New Soft Star Ballet Flat!

First Sneak Peek at the New Soft Star Ballet Flat!

Gwen, one of our innovative designer elves, has been hard at work on her latest creation. She's putting the final touches on a project we've been dreaming about for a long time: the Soft Star ballet flat!

Our new ballet flat will be offered in a variety of materials, colors and motifs. We're now excited to share with you the first official photo showing what one of them looks like:

Soft Star Ballet Flat Sneak Peek

We still have a lot of work to do before we're ready to release this new style, which is currently scheduled to go on sale in August, 2013. We hope you'll stay posted for more updates, because we may be asking for feedback on color choices!

 

On the horizon...

Many people have inquired about our plans for an adult sandal. We're happy to say our designers are currently working on a pattern for one, but it won't be released until spring 2014. Also on the drawing board: a men's dress shoe!

    I am so excited about these. I've been looking for a work shoe that looks nice, is comfortable, and won't mess up my feet...I think these could fit the bill!

    Love it!! Very cute!! I'm excited for both of the new plans too. I would love a sandal and I know that the men would be happy for a shoe they can wear to work!

    Can't wait for August!!! I want a pair in black and a pair in brown for comfortable AND beautiful shoes to wear in my work as a photographer!!! I need comfort and flexibility, and I know Soft Star shoes fit the bill--and these look dressy enough to wear when working with clients! One question…what kind of soles will they have? I need a bit of traction when working on hard wood. Thanks!!!

    Awesome! I tried Tieks and they were not the right fit. I can't wait to try these. One bit of input -- please make the top part large enough to cover the toes -- it looks so bad when the lines of the toes show from under the top of the shoe.

    Looking good. Yes, the new ballet flat will add to my wardrobe of shoes for my happy feet. Thanks again, elves, for being so innovative and creative!

    I am so excited! I wish they were lower on the top, though. I have high arches so tops that show "toe jam" usually fit while the others are too tight. :( I enjoy soles that have total feel of the ground. My Merry Jane's and Dash Run a Mocks are too stiff to wear for a long time. I love the barefoot feel!

    I can't wear any shoes but yours and huaraches since my foot has become more healthy! Thanks for providing such a fabulous product for those of us that value our feet and their happiness! I have been looking forward to a girly shoe for a long time!

    Thanks a ton!

    So excited about these! Any chance you will be offering them in grey? I would love a pair in a nice, neutral color but am not such a fan of black or brown...

      Hi Megan! The stock colors are still undecided, but stay in touch because we may be asking customers to help us vote on them! We also expect to offer a design-your-own option for the ballet flats, although that may not come until a few weeks after their initial release.

    Looking forward to seeing these. I have yet to find a ballet flat that doesn't hurt the back of my ankle where the elastic hits.

    I would also prefer more coverage in the front rather than less. And of course they have to be wide enough / kind of foot shaped in the toe box.

      Nope, you haven't missed anything. Our testing phase took longer than we anticipated and we're working on some final design tweaks. The new release date is TBD, but we hope to have them out very soon!
