Brian's Review - Tory Burch Flats

Nordstrom's Display 
I am officially hooked on Tory Burch ballet flats.  I now have two pairs and I am sure that this is not the end of it. Before I get too far out of control I will be looking for a 12 step program. Oh my – somewhere to wear my new shoes.
Brian, our flat’s expert, has been tempting me from his blog for months and finally this week Nordstrom Anniversary Sale trapped me. To the right is the photo from the Nordstrom’s display. It is amazing how comfortable and I love the blue polka dots. 

Brian writes a blog and has a wonderful review of my new Minnie flats. I also purchased the red Minnie pair yesterday; almost 60% off at my local Tory store. 

Thanks Brian.  I never knew that girl's shoes could be so wonderfully comfortable.  
Blow is Brian's review.


Tory Burch Minnie Travel Ballet Flats

Minnie Travel Flats
My favorite designer, Tory  Burch has created a new twist on her classic Reva flats. They are called the Minnie travel ballet flats. They look just like her iconic Revas but that’s where it ends. The nappa leather used on the uppers is much softer and less structured than that used on the Revas making it very foot friendly. The soles are like pillows for your feet. Dare I say it feels like you’re floating on air. The Tory medallions on the toes are still metal but come in the same basic tonal color as the flat itself. If you’ve every heard of Tieks flats, these Minnie flats are quite similar but with a Tory twist. They are called travel flats cuz they’re made to be folded up and put in your handbag or purse, just like Tieks. I don’t think I’ll  ever do that with mine and besides, only on certain occasions do I carry a purse. 

The first pair of these I bought were the Laguna blue ones. These were given two thumbs up by my close friend Jen.  While buying them the gunmetal pair also caught my eye. I think they appealed to me cuz that’s the color of my little Honda Accord coupe. These first two pairs were bought at the TB boutique in Scottsdale in March while on vacation.  Shortly after I got home from that vacation, my local TB sales associate put a gold pair aside for me to try. I guess the picture will tell you if I bought them or not. Ha-ha.  The gunmetal pair has a certain iridescent look to them in certain lighting conditions. So does the gold pair but in the direct sunlight the gold pair just POP’s with all the colors of the rainbow. I likely won’t get the green or red pair but if they are every made in black. Count me in, sign me up or let me at them. 

So far the online reviews are good.  Most women (or men) find the Revas need some breaking in. The Minnie are comfy right out of the box. If you’re a fan of Tory flats you need to try a pair of these.

  1. Rhonda. Thank-you "once again" for sharing my thoughts on ballet flats. Specifically my Tory Burch flats. I'm glad I tempted you with my Tory's and that you have treated yourself to a couple pairs. You are not the first person I've influenced. I've received lots of messages from women and men saying how me wearing Tory's has made them also want a pair for themselves.

    As for the 12 step program, I'm not sure there is one. Once you've been "bitten" by the Tory Burch bug, there is no cure.

    I love your quote, "I never knew girl's shoes could be so wonderfully comfortable." As a boy I completely agree with your quote. Thanks for sharing the picture of my new floral TB Minnie's, besides being comfortable they are also pretty cute.
