In a city of a bazillion shoe stores I am having a hard time finding simple black ballet flats - no bows, studs, flowers or anything else on them!

I am sure they are here somewhere but I'd love it if someone could help me narrow down where I might find simple but well made black flats.

Thanks,

Kels

there is a section of av. cordoba near 9 de julio that has several stores with ballet/dance cloths and shoes ... i walked by there and noted that there were all sorts of dance shoes- soft sole and hard sole (not tango shoes)... sounds like what you are looking for... let me know how you do...

Thanks for the info - are they actual dance shoes? I am looking for street shoes but ballet-style, ones you can throw on with jeans. So leather with a hard sole.

You could try Hush Puppies or Merrill good quality and supportive shoes. I have seen some Puma flats that were leather and very simple here in BA.
