When I was choosing a color for the Sarah Flint Sachetto Ballet Flats, I went back and forth between black (practical!), tan (neutral!), and the lovely ‘Petal’ color, a feminine blush pink. I finally opted for Petal, looking to recreate the love I had for a pair of Everlane pink ballet flats several years ago.
Yet you’re not wear pink shoes, they’re more of a subtle shade of blush. These are the perfect color that can read as a neutral and go with absolutely everything. The contrasting patent leather cap toe is a touch that elevates them just enough.
Sarah Flint Sachetto Ballet Flat Review
I’ve learned the name Sachetto comes from a specific type of Italian shoe construction that leads to a shoe that fits like a glove. And, since Sarah Flint manufacturers their shoes in Italy, this all makes sense.
The official description of these flats says: 10mm ballet flat with squared toe, traditional sacchetto construction, and classic silhouette with playful cap toe and matching covered button
How do they fit?
I wear between a 7 and a 7.5 and I ordered a (37.5) 7.5. They fit, with enough room for a cushioned insert if I decide to go that route (as I think is sometimes helpful in a flat!).
Are they comfortable?
Yes! I’ll get more into this later in the post, but I find the silhouette of these to be incredibly comfortable.
How do they wear?
Well! These are super high quality shoes. However, I was listening to a podcast last night about making investment pieces last and they recommended having a cobbler add a hard sole to any expensive shoe with a leather sole, and I am going to look into doing that so I can go longer without having them resoled.
I will add, it started pouring one evening while I was wearing them and the splashes of water looked almost blue against the blush pink leather. But, thankfully, it dried without a trace.
What can you wear them with?
So far, the oufits I’ve worn the Sachetto Ballet Flats with include jeans and a striped tee for daytime, jeans and a madras blazer for a night out, and white jeans and a silk top for a dressier day event. These flats are versatile, though, for me, I do prefer to wear flats with pants rather than dresses or skirts.
Would I recommend the Sarah Flint Sachetto Ballet Flats?
Definitely! I love the feminine, yet neutral, color of these Sachetto Ballet Flats, and they come in a wide range of colors, including black, saddle, and multiple sumptuous prints. They’re a great staple piece that you can dress up or down, and the contrast cap toe is incredibly chic.
Are Sarah Flint Ballet Flats Comfortable?
These Sachetto Ballet Flats are incredibly comfortable. I’ve worn them walking all over both DC and when we were in Edenton, NC last weekend. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the pointed Natalie Flats, which I know a lot of people have. Some people absolutely love them, some people find them to be incredibly blister-producing. It comes down to your foot shape, as with all shoes. But that has deterred me from buying the Natalies since I don’t love a pointed toe.
However, with the square toe of the Sachetto Flats, there’s plenty of room for my toes and I don’t feel constrained at all. They’re a great everyday flat that’s comfortable for both wearing around town or while traveling.
