Bloch flats are the most comfortable flats I've had the privilege of trying on. They feel just like ballet slippers. In fact, this brand was introduced in Australia in 1932 and focused its talents on custom-made shoes for ballet dancers around the globe. With its superb quality and popularity over the years Bloch has expanded and become a very fashionable name. With a reasonable price-point and emphasis on comfort and style, these flats are hard to beat. And colorful patent shoes happen to be a favorite of mine.
