While not a walking shoe, Tory Burch Minnie flats are super cute, packable, and make wonderful shoes for flying or adding chic to an outfit. They’re also beloved by TFG’s Editor-in-Chief. Learn why they’re so wildly popular in this review!

Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats Review

While flats are not a main walking shoe, they’re still popular for travel and many female globetrotters wear them to add a polished element to a dressy outfit, or use them for an airplane outfit.

And once in a while, a shoe becomes the talk of traveling circles. Introducing, Tory Burch ballet flats

Readers have been raving about Tory Burch shoes for years so I thought I’d finally try them out. They’ve now become one of my flight essentials!  

Find out why these flats are a practical, yet super stylish travel option!

Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats Features

Comfortable

I’ve actually resisted a foldable ballet flat for a while because I wasn’t sure if they were for me. But I got convinced to try the Tory Burch flats by readers raving about them and am delightfully surprised!

I wore them in-flight and they were easy to wear and comfortable on the plane. It felt like I had slippers on and that’s really what you want when you’re going on a long flight, especially if you have connections to contend with. They even have a little rubber grip on the bottoms, so I didn’t slip while walking around. 

One reader agrees with how comfy they are. “Love my Minnie’s—they’re nice and soft, with good cushioning.”

Overall, the leather feels like really good quality and they’re soft. I didn’t feel like there was any breaking in period either. I wore them for about 10 hours as I went from one destination to the next through a couple of airports and didn’t experience any discomfort.

In terms of other types of walking situations, readers do say Tory Burch Travel Ballet Flats are not a main sightseeing shoe. One echoes this, saying, “I have a pair of Tory Burch but would not recommend them for all-day walking.”

Packability

In general, flats are known for packing lighter than other shoes but ever since the introduction of foldable ones, travel got so much easier! 

The Tory Burch Minnie Travel Flat fits that bill. They’re foldable, with a split sole so they’re bendable for packing, and they come in their own case (cute!).

You simply pull them out, snap them open, and they can pack super light into a carry on, and then be put away easily enough when you want to switch shoes. (Heck, you could bring more than one pair!)

Styling

It’s a given that flats are adorable and the Tory Burch Minnie Travel leather ballet flat is no different! They’re very sleek, with a chic design, so I see why it’s become so popular and why TFG readers love them. 

I got the Tory Burch black flats in Perfect Black color with the map black logo medallion and really love the look. It truly suits my style! I typically wear a lot of black with some pops of color, so these flats blend in well with my capsule wardrobe.

I’ve worn them with leggings, ponte pants, and jeans. For many users, the variety of hardware on each shoe (gold to solid) really makes styling a pleasure apparently!

Pros

These flats are dang cute. They’re foldable (which means packable), stylish, and lightweight to take on any spring or summer trip, and work superbly in-flight or transiting through airports.

They’re a breeze to take on and off and I didn’t have to fiddle with zippers and laces and hold up the security line when I wear them during a travel day. 

They’re uber comfortable, completely work for me from a style aspect, and they’re versatile enough for a variety of looks. 

In terms of fit, readers with narrow or wide feet feel they work for them mostly and find they’re super awesome for adding pizzaz to a dressier outfit. It’s easy to see why this is a reader favorite!

One reader sums it up well. “My faves are Tory Burch Minnie’s. I have five pairs. Love them!”

Cons

Though these flats are stylish and practical, they don’t have much support so they aren’t recommended for heavy walking excursions. One reader says of her experience,  “For me, the Tory Burch Minnie flats are quite comfortable. Not walking shoes though—just cute bopping around shoes.”

It’s important for walking shoes to have padding and these just have enough, but not more than what a cushy slip-on or urban hiking shoe might have. 

However, a reader suggests a balanced solution for support issues. “I have a pair of Tory Burch that I like. There’s zero support so you’d need to add gel inserts.” 

In general, if you’re someone who needs arch support, this may not be the shoe for you.
