You can get them on Amazon for between $17 and $19, depending on size and color. The Amazon Essentials Women’s Ballet Flat comes in black, dark bronze, gold, navy, nude and tan. A good pair of basic flats is essential in any shoe collection, and these classic flats certainly fit the bill.

Get them in a few different colors to mix and match with different outfits. They’re ideal for pairing with jeans and a T-shirt for a casual look, and they would be just as cute when worn with a dress.


These versatile fats feature a classic silhouette, a faux leather upper and a gently elasticized topline. They have a 4.5-star rating with more than 1,600 reviews. Customers say they’re cute, comfortable and a great everyday staple for an affordable price.

“True to size with no break-in period since not real leather but feels just as smooth!” notes one review. “No toe cleavage no weird noises when walking.”

“I’m very impressed with these black ballet flats by Amazon,” reads another review. “They are so soft and lightweight. I can barely feel them on my feet! I usually have a problem with shoes rubbing the back of my ankles raw but not with these! There’s no slipping or sliding, they fit perfectly.”


Other reviewers mentioned the shoes’ high quality and durability.

“I hope Amazon offers more color options like reds, pinks, blues, patterned and more,” said one customer. “I would buy them all. Actually I also bought some Amazon Essential tees, and they are great – very well made and good quality of material.”

The flats have a rubber sole for good grip and traction.


The faux suede microfiber lining provides superior comfort and breathability as well.
