The Valentina Teagan Ballet Flat . . . a Shoe for the Sweet, Smart, and Confident Girl

Thank you to Valentina Shoes for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

Our 6 year old daughter is a girl who loves to look stylish, but she also values comfort.  If she tries out a pair of shoes that constantly lets wood chips fall into them at the playground, then she will not wear them to school again, no matter how cute the shoe or how much I paid for them.  What can I say? . . . The girl knows what she likes.  The fact of the matter is that she wants to look good, but it can't stand in her way of running as fast (or faster) than her friends at recess.

I think Valentina has achieved the perfect balance between style and comfort with their line of girls ballet flats.  The styles are fun with bold colors . . . definitely not for the wallflower.  My daughter fell in love with the Teagan ballet flat, which comes in 3 color combinations.  The Red with Turquoise was her favorite.  This shoes is definitely for a girl who likes hearts.  In addition to the prominent heart on the vamp of the shoe, there is also a goldtone heart on the side of the shoe . . . a Valentina signature.

My daughter is just starting to wear a Size 1 shoe.  This ballet flat is a Size 1 to 1-1/2, so it was slightly large on her. It will likely fit her perfectly when school resumes at the end of August.  Still, our daughter had to admit that this shoe was exceptionally comfortable.  The synthetic upper was extremely soft and the rubber sole was cushy and flexible.

Turquoise just happens to be one of my daughter's favorite colors, so she had several tops to coordinate with this shoe.  I personally think any of the Valentina ballet flats would look great as a pop of color with a black tee and blue jeans.  What do you think?
