Tory Burch Reva Ballerina Flats Summer 2013 Make a Mother Proud
The Tory Burch Reva ballerina collection, named after Tory’s mother, is “an iconic style known for its timeless design and perfect fit,” according to the Tory Burch website. The fit is attributable in part to the elasticized back (except in the burlap style) of this signature shoe.

It is also chic, available in a plethora of leathers and colors, each with an oversized signature medallion on the toe, sometimes plain hardware, sometimes painted to match the shoe color. Besides the indispensable neutrals and skins (including metallic), plenty of seasonal colors are available. Made in Brazil, the Reva ballet flat comes in half sizes, available in upscale department stores and boutiques at a typical retail price of is $225-250.
