A Fitflop ballet flat to beat all! That’s the Allegro. The company recently released this slim, chic beauty and the fans are going wild, including us at Barking Dog Shoes. We appreciate Fitflop for sending us the Allegro and Allegro fringe to review. With spring around the corner, we’re looking forward to shedding our wool socks and slipping into something more streamlined.
Beth and I tried our hand (foot?) at a video review. We’re noobs, so don’t have professional lighting and sound equipment, but we understand comfortable shoes. We’ll keep trying til we get into the groove of video reviews.
What we like about the new Fitflop ballet flat, Allegro and Allegro fringe:
- Roomy forefoot makes it bunion-friendly
- Elasticized heel prevents slippage
- Good cushioning from toe to heel considering it’s a flat
- Flexible and lightweight
- Classic style goes with everything
A few things to consider before ordering:
- Only three half sizes. Kirsten’s 10 in the Allegro fringe feels a tad roomy, perhaps order down a half size if you’re on the smaller end of your size.
- Arch support is moderate at best. It’s really hard to build in enhanced arch support in a ballet flat, but Fitflop did a decent job.
- Best for medium to wide feet, not for narrow widths!
The Fitflop Allegro ballet flat and variations (with straps or fringe) are available in sizes 5-11 (three half sizes), for $110-130 from Fitflop.com, free shipping and free returns (full price items only).
