I didn’t realize it before, but the Ballasox flats I bought from Martin+Osa also have another name: Festive. I was wondering why it was difficult to find online, and it’s because I had the wrong name. *Wah wahhh* Well I’m ecstatic because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find a replacement when they wear out… but seems like many retailers have noticed the demand for them!
You can currently find them at Nordstrom, the Corso Como website, Bloomingdales and Piperlime for $60. I’d also try searching on Google product search if you’re searching for rare colors. Once in a while you can find prices lower than $60 if a particular retailer is having a sale.
There is also the Felicity flat, which is the same as Festive but with soft ankle ties:
I’m not affilated with Corso Como in any way… but honestly I just LOVE LOVE LOVE these flats. I’m wondering whether I should get a metallic one but in my experience the metallic leather sheen can rub off easily in some spots.
(EDIT: My mom bought me some Festives in Gold!)
Happy shopping, ballet flat lovers!
