Repetto was high on the Paris shopping list, since I had never seen the store, famous for ballet staples since 1947. I have dreamed of putting a pair on my feet for years!  I only dabbled in ballet when I was younger, so I never had a need for serious slippers, but I've always admired their beauty and tradition. I love the Bolchoi flat, offered in a rainbow of colors!  Le sigh…



  1. Which color did you get? Apparently you invariably need to resole them because they’re so thin but after that, they last forever!

  2. I think it’s called graphite…a very dark, slightly metallic gray. Just a slight twist on classic black, which I had planned on. They are so comfortable! I had not heard about the sole issue, thanks…but for this comfort I’ll deal with that. :)

  3. how have i never been to the repetto store?!?! I LOVE their mary jane heels and think I definitely need to stop the repetto “mecca” by on my next trip! and ps…. I love all the little snippets from your trip :)

  4. Abbie, thanks for visiting, and yes, it is a magical place. :)

    Ashley….absolutely put it on your next trip itinerary! So happy you like my snippets!! :)
