tory burch ballet flats

The Tory Burch ballet flats in their “Reva” incarnation with the easily identifiable silver medallion have been popular in Manila for about two or three years now. Their appeal to Pinay fashionistas is so intense that a boutique has opened in Greenbelt 5, Ayala Malls, Makati. TB’s other overseas stores are in China, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the UK.

They are rather pricey in Manila, as are other luxury goods. Here are a couple of pairs I got online, on sale:

Tory Burch “Reva” ballet flats in grey flannel.

The logo is embossed inside the shoe.

Silver TB medallion.

The logo is also marked into the bottom of the shoe, as well as a “shield” logo that indicates a leather sole, and size information.

The “Anne Marie” flats in bronze.

As with the “Reva” flats, the TB logo is also marked on the inside of the shoe.

The soles of this model aren’t leather, and the size information is on a sticker, rather than cut into the sole itself.

Both pairs are comfy, the Reva a bit more so as the back part of the Anne Marie flats are too high and rub against the soft skin above the back of my heel. It takes a bit of getting used to.

The Reva ballet flats are everywhere in Manila and other Philippine cities nowadays, but are still must-haves despite their ubiquity, as columnist “Divasoria” says in her “Simple Girl Index”.
