Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats Comfortable
I’ve actually resisted a foldable ballet flat for a while because I wasn’t sure if they were for me. But I got convinced to try the Tory Burch flats by readers raving about them and am delightfully surprised!
I wore them in-flight and they were easy to wear and comfortable on the plane. It felt like I had slippers on and that’s really what you want when you’re going on a long flight, especially if you have connections to contend with. They even have a little rubber grip on the bottoms, so I didn’t slip while walking around.
One reader agrees with how comfy they are. “Love my Minnie’s—they’re nice and soft, with good cushioning.”
In terms of other types of walking situations, readers do say Tory Burch Travel Ballet Flats are not a main sightseeing shoe. One echoes this, saying, “I have a pair of Tory Burch but would not recommend them for all-day walking.”
Tory Burch Packability Review
In general, flats are known for packing lighter than other shoes but ever since the introduction of foldable ones, travel got so much easier!
The Tory Burch Minnie Travel Flat fits that bill. They’re foldable, with a split sole so they’re bendable for packing, and they come in their own case (cute!).
You simply pull them out, snap them open, and they can pack super light into a carry on, and then be put away easily enough when you want to switch shoes. (Heck, you could bring more than one pair!)
Tory Burch Styling Review
It’s a given that flats are adorable and the Tory Burch Minnie Travel leather ballet flat is no different! They’re very sleek, with a chic design, so I see why it’s become so popular and why TFG readers love them.
I got the Tory Burch black flats in Perfect Black color with the map black logo medallion and really love the look. It truly suits my style! I typically wear a lot of black with some pops of color, so these flats blend in well with my capsule wardrobe.
I’ve worn them with leggings, ponte pants, and jeans. For many users, the variety of hardware on each shoe (gold to solid) really makes styling a pleasure apparently!
Perhaps you don’t want to pack heels, but want to dress up and look a bit more polished for those days you aren’t sightseeing, such as going to a nice dinner or an event, then this flat won’t disappoint you.
Tory Burch Versatility Review
What I like about the Tory Burch Minnie flats is they’re offered in multiple colors and prints, with different hardware choices, either colored or gold, so they can be styled to suit anyone’s taste.
This is a dead-on ringer for a spring and summer shoe, but can also be worn in early fall, with a pair of cute tights. The Minnie ballet flat can definitely transition from jeans to a skirt or a travel dress with ease.
Overall, readers say these flats are awesome for going through the airport, light walking, or when you want to dress up an outfit.
Tory Burch Fit Review
I concur with this and find these on more of the narrow side versus boxy or square. Because of my height, I generally prefer pointed toe shoes over round ones, but these strike a perfect balance between a round and a pointy toe.
Sometimes with ballet flats, they can fall closer to the toes, or the toes are completely covered and higher on their foot. Everyone has a preference, but I find the Tory Burch ballet shoes sit well. I love where it falls on my toes, It’s not too high and hits right at the beginning of my toes.
Even if they fit on the narrow side, some readers with wide feet dig the Tory Burch flats sizing. “Love the Minnie’s and I’ve got big feet.”
Tory Burch Verdict Review
Tory Burch flats are popular with readers who say this shoe is packable, super chic, and made of quality leather that’s soft and comfortable, and therefore, they can be broken in fairly easily.
Because of the craftsmanship and the logo medallion hardware, these can complement a pretty dress, but also look equally stylish with dark jeans, a tee, and a cardigan.
Though these aren’t exactly a walking shoe, they can still be used for short bursts and hold up. Overall, these make a solid addition to your airplane outfit and capsule wardrobe.
This was actually something that’s been recommended by readers for years. I’m glad to finally get my own set. I’m a new fan of the Tory Burch Minnie flats!
Where to Buy Tory Burch Minnie Flats
Whether you have a front loading or top loading backpack, it’s crucial to put your shoes first, at the bottom. If you’re planning to pack shoes in a rolling carry-on, remember that it stands sideways, so it’s important to note how it functions when it is upright.
Most often, your shoes will need to be packed close to the wheels, so that the luggage maintains its balance in transit.
