A pair of French Sole ballet flats is on my lifetime list of "shoes to buy." I often have trouble with ballet flats, because a) they're so incredibly flat that my feet are unhappy with me and b) my feet are very narrow in the heel but wide at the toes, so the shape of ballet shoes (where they're usually a similar width through the entire length of the shoe) is often hard for me to wear.
But French Soles... well... one day they will be mine.
If the shoe doesn't fit, must we change the foot? --Gloria Steinem
