Shoe Review: It’s a Reva Party!

The Tory Burch Reva flat is probably the most popular ballet flat on the planet.  There’s just something magnetic about the simple design and the unmistakable logo medallion.  I remember when I was thinking about buying a pair, several people had complained about how uncomfortable they were because of the gathered, elastic detail on the heel.  One friend said she had only worn them twice but didn’t want to consign them because she had paid so much for them. So, they just sat in her closet. Such a shame.  I decided to go to Nordstrom shoe department because they always have excellent customer service and they didn’t let me down.  When I asked to try on a pair of the flats, the salesman immediately said “You need to size up at least a half size with these shoes”. Problem solved! I’ve been wearing my Reva’s pain free since then.  The leather ones I only had to go up half a size, but I went up a whole size for my glitter pair.
