paul smith green patent flat ballet.jpgPaul Smith's signature colourful stripes still scream late '90s to me but I think I can overcome my fashion snobbery for these ballet-inspired flats (£160).

They have an appealing pointe toe ballet detail and and the elasticated edge means you can easily slip them in your bag for standby.
