We’re gonna go on a limb and assume you have somewhere around, oh, seven pairs of ballet flats? They’re a staple of New York living after all. But we’ve discovered a new local line just may put our generic pairs to shame.
Enter Margaux and its flats that are made to your exact measurements.
Here’s how it works: Go to the site and choose “The Fit” and “Made to Measure" (as opposed to “The Classic,” which are ready-to-buy pairs in standard European sizing). From there you can follow the guide and enter in your dimensions (using your own measuring tape) or you can order a free fitting kit (which includes the tape).
If one foot is slightly bigger than the other, have no fear. Both feet are measured, and shoes are produced individually. The flats themselves are made right here in New York City and take about two weeks to arrive.
So choose one of the 14 shades, pony up $195 and enjoy your new blister-free existence.
