My story begins with the fact that I have never been a fan of ballet flats. Perhaps it is because I'm always looking for a shoe that will give me that extra inch (or 5!) or maybe because I really just never saw the point in wearing a shoe that really does absolutely nothing for your stature. As it started getting nicer out, I found myself wearing a pair of Havaianas to work in place of my comfortable but not-so-weather-appropriate boots.
Of course, immediately upon arrival to work I quickly would change into whatever heel I had stashed in my cabinet but what about those couple minutes spent getting into the building, up the escalator and riding the elevator? My flip flop attire was not cutting it and that is when it dawned on me that I actually needed a pair of flats.
Never owning a pair of flats, maybe I should have just gone for a flimsy inexpensive pair, but instead I went for a pair from the flat queen herself, Tory Burch. I fell in love with the new Aaden Ballet flat and trying them on felt like heaven.

Unfortunately when they arrived and within the first ten minutes of wearing them I was limping my way to work in pain. I know some shoes (especially the Tory flats) take awhile to break in, but has anyone else had this issue that eventually goes away? If not, I am sadly going to have to let go of this gorgeous pair of shoes and be forced to go back to wearing beach attire on my way to work.
