I couldn't decide between a classic black and a more fun neutral pair:
TB Classic Reva Ballerina Flat in Black with Silver Logo
TB Reva Lizard Embossed Leather Flat in Gold Petal
So I got both! And of course now I'm tempted to keep both lol. Here's a head to head comparison!
Front & Side View:
On the feet:
The lizard print in Gold Petal is actually more of a cream color with specks of gray, and feels slightly stiffer and less flexible than their classic ballerina style. I got them both in size 5.5, and the black runs true to size while the lizard print runs slightly big. It doesn't slip off my feet thanks to the elastic part in the back, but I think I might be able to fit into a size 5. True to the TB reputation however, they both do feel reeeally comfortable on, although I haven't worn them outside yet so I don't know how they'll fare after a long day.
Now my dilemma... Black is classic and goes with everything, including black tights/leggings for winter. Gold petal has a more interesting print but is still versatile, and the neutral lighter color elongates leg line which is especially helpful in flats. Which pair should I choose? And dare I say both?! :P
