Sip & Shop at French Sole

So this happened one easy breezy Thursday afternoon.

A few of us were invited by Tin of ManilaFashionObserver to the opening of French Sole in Greenbelt 5. The food and drinks were divine and the shoes did not disappoint.

"French Sole first began life as a gleam of an idea when Jane Winkworth made her initial collections of bespoke ballet flats back in 1968, working with Gamba and Annello and Davide in London. Later in 1989 after a period as a trained restorer and painter of fine porcelain, Jane Winkworth started French Sole after a chance meeting with a shoe salesman from the French Hirica factory, called Philipe Cassalis.

Philipe, together with the factory he represented - who still today make the famous ballet flats that they first created back in 1950 - encouraged Jane to set up her business specialising in selling only ballet flats and loved her chosen name of French Sole.

The shoes were made using Jane's own materials, to her own designs and trimmed in the unusual contrasting colours never before seen on ballet flats and under the label of her new name - French Sole." - French Sole website
 
 
I must tell you they do not come cheap with price points of P6,000 and up. But if you have been on the look out for that perfect pair of ballet flats, then here are five reasons why these are worth your peso.

1.  They use real leather. Every pair is ultra-soft and comfortable.
2.  They have half sizes! A shout-out to all the ladies who have given up finding that perfect fitting ballet flats!
3.  As if half sizes were not enough, some pairs have adjustable ribbons. You can tighten or loosen the fit to your liking.
4.  They clean and maintain the shoes for you! How cool is that? In case you get your pair soiled, you may bring them to any French Sole branch to have them cleaned.
5.  They are just so pretty on the feet! They have a special pointy style that other ballet flats do not have.

Lovely pictures. Looks like you ladies had a blast. I have been to French Sole in Manila. Found the brand by chance in Singapore a few years back. It's super comfy. And I too love ballerina flats
