Always on the search for the holy grail of New York shoes (a pair that?s as practical as it is fashion forward), we may have found spring?s next big thing.
Meet the d?Orsay flat.
Where it started You may have seen the original trendsetter--essentially a pointy ballet flat without the sides--on the celebrity and blogger scenes, thanks to L.A. designer Jenni Kayne. Her signature style comes in dozens of fabrications from leather and suede to silk and denim (starting at $425). Snag some locally at Fivestory (18 E. 69th St.) and Curve (83 Mercer St.).
Where you can find it Thankfully, several other lines have hopped on the bandwagon, and the style can now be found all over the city. Our personal favorites are 3.1 Phillip Lim?s dainty V-front update ($395; Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Ave.) and Alexander Wang?s, which feature the edgy addition of an ankle cuff ($525; 103 Grand St.). But there are also Vince?s classic neutrals ($295; Bergdorf Goodman, Fifth Avenue and 58th Street), Sigerson Morrison?s Mary Janes ($395; 28 Prince St.), J.Crew?s popping colors ($178; various locations) and even lower-priced options from Steve Madden and Forever 21 ($100 and $20 respectively).
Move over smoking slippers, your competition has arrived.
