Repetto Introduces Men’s Ballet Flats

Repetto Men's Ballet Flats

French ballet flat brand Repetto is introducing men’s ballet flats for fall ’15.

The Caruso men’s style—which is made in France—will retail for $375. It will be available at the new, 2,350 square feet Repetto store opening in SoHo, New York, later this year.

Made in a black patent leather, the men’s flat is made using a stitch-and-return method, which makes the style more flexible and comfort-oriented. 

Coincidentally on-trend, men’s ballet flats have been an unlikely trend at the recent men’s shows. Brands like Dries Van Noten and Gucci have embraced the typically more feminine footwear style, encouraging a more genderless approach to menswear dressing.

The Repetto brand has become known for its iconic ballet slippers, which date back to 1947. 

Founder Rose Repetto created her first shoes in a workshop at the National Opera of Paris, following the advice and encouragement of her son, who was a dancer and choreographer.
