The World's Most Comfortable Ballet Flat

Ballet flats are a wardrobe essential, but most flats available only focus on the design and completely ignore the fit and comfort.

They're definitely not good for you with their uncomfortably narrow fit and lack of cushioning. We constantly had sore spots or aching arches.

So working with expert designers we completely re-designed it from the ground up. 1,840 hours and 12 revisions later, the result: The softest 24 hr flats in a timeless design.

The secret lies in the soles. Our unique LORA Sole evens out the pressure across your whole foot. Meaning you'll feel fresh even after hours of walking.

Wide Feet

Let your toes spread out the way nature intended them to. Made for women of all sizes, Empress Flats are designed to be good for your feet as well as good for your style.

Style AND Comfort Exists

Made from Mould-to-your-feet leather, Empress Flats are designed to fit like a glove which means there's no need for band-aids. The soft material will literally 'cup' your heel so it doesn't slip off no matter how much you dance, run, or jump.
