Flat Month: Degas

Dancers Rest by Icon

I don’t usually go for a theme-y shoe, heck, I don’t even really like Degas all that much, but there’s something about these skimmers that speak to me. They’re whimsical but not overdone, so visually they read the same as a soft floral and not like Novelty Socks of Doom.

Degas flats

They also work across the generations. I could easily see a 14 year-old young lady wearing these with a sweet little dress, I’d certainly toodle around town in a pair of narrow but not skinny dark jeans and a ballet neck top, and a woman of a certain age could wear them beautifully with a chic pair of trousers, softly luminous jewelry (I’m thinking something like pearls with a bohemian edge) and a dove grey cashmere sweater set.

    Icon shoes are *extremely* comfortable. It’s too bad they don’t have more styles. I have a single pair and really can’t see making use of any more. It’s a darned shame, since they are so very, very comfy!

    I actually caught my breath these are so lovely. I like the “Masked Ball” design better (Manet) because I just don’t feel comfortable in pale shoes.
