Editor's Pick: Roots Tassle Flats

The classic slipper shoe gets a Flare-approved tune-up

Ballet flats will never go out of style. Though Flare editors do clip-clop around in vertiginous footwear, we all keep one (or three) pairs or grounded shoes with us for quick switches. Catching our eye for spring, these lovely flats from Roots just arrived in stores. The tassle-bow adds a touch of heritage prep, while the neutral colour palette is perfect for pairing with the season’s punchy brights and gamine ankle-grazing pants. Handcrafted in Italy, these chic slides are proof that elevated classics are always a smart buy.
