I’m happy to report that my favorite shoes I’ve ever owned have a lowed priced dupe! About a year ago I picked up a pair of J.Crew Cece suede ballet flats and have worn them to death since. They are the most comfortable flats ever. Scratch that, they’re the most comfortable shoes ever. This is because they have a teeny-tiny, cushy hidden wedge so that your foot is not completely one with the ground. So when I noticed a suspiciously familiar pair of shoes at DSW the other afternoon, I had to do some investigating. Fortunately for me, I was wearing my trusty Cece flats that day and could compare side-by-side. Let me tell you right now that they are the EXACT SAME SHOES. I even compared the sole design and stitching (by the way, the DSW website mistakenly labels these flats as faux leather, but I assure you that they are 100% real suede). These shoes must be made by a larger manufacturer and then sold to both J.Crew and DSW. Here’s the difference: J.Crew sells theirs for $128 and DSW sells theirs for $59.95 (and I even snagged a pair on sale for $41!). Buy a pair of these flats now and your feet will thank you later: Audrey Brooke Newport Flats.
