Cheap Thrill! Lace-Up Ballerina Slippers to Get You Dancin’ in Style

Stylish steals to get you through tough times... The classic gladiator sandal is feeling a bit tired these days, and we already have enough ballerina flats in our closet to supply the entire company of ABT, so when we came across these lace-up dance shoes from Capezio ($55), we were thrilled to find a shoe that's the best of both worlds: part lace-up gladiator, part ballerina flat, these slippers are an awesome, original alternative. We love the pink version worn over black tights, and they can easily transition to bare legs come spring. Might we recommend you get them resoled though, as city streets will be pretty brutal to this delicate duo.
