Roses & Rye: Chic & Comfy Ballet Flats for Mom

If there’s one thing moms know for sure, it’s that a flat pair of shoes is perfect for every day wear. But like all things, not all flat footwear is created equal. Some don’t really provide the arch support moms-on-the-go need. That’s why we’re loving the new collection from Roses & Rye.

Created by husband and wife team Ian Picache and Patricia Calfee, the line includes two styles (the Marina, $189, and the Laurel, $235) which feature patent-pending technology that ensures your feet stay comfy and protected during all those school runs and playground visits.

I’m sure they’re cute, but that’s just a bit out of my price range:-)

Sounds great, but what “average” Mom spends that much on shoes? I know I certainly don’t! I’ve been lusting after a pair that is only $30, but when do I ever spend money on myself!? Never! lol

Maybe when I win the lottery I can buy these shoes and be cool. lol

They are cute. But they are out of my range too. I love flats.

I guess she spent so much on her own shoes, she didn’t have any left for her son. Kidding. I’d pay $200 for shoes, but, these don’t have much style to them. Maybe they are comfortable… on

They are cute and I am sure comfy…but I don’t have that kind of money at this point in my life for some ballet flats! I do spend money on things like clogs or boots that I will wear for 10 or more years but for flats I just picked some cute ones up that are decently comfy at Gap from the $10 dollar clearnance so ladies go check them out!
