It's been a while since I've done a fashion review, hasn't it? I was inspired to write about the Tory Burch Reva ballet flats after receiving so many questions about them lately.
Any ballerina flat-lover worth her salt owns, or wants to own, a pair of Tory Burch Reva flats. And for good reason! They are available in many different colors and they can be dressed up, or down, depending on the occasion.
I bought my first pair of Tory Burch Reva flats in November 2009 at the Tory Burch store in Hong Kong. At that time, I've been drooling over them for a while, but I was quite hesitant to buy them because I read so many mixed reviews on them. But, I "needed" them...
At the moment, I own two pairs; the black Nappa leather ones with the gold logo medallion and the nude/sand color patent leather ones, also with the gold logo medallion.

Good thing I tried them on, because just as most reviews online had stated, these flats do run small for most people, and you will have to buy a half or full size up. I usually wear a US size 7.5 and I got my Reva's in a US size 8. The shoe is quite narrow, but after some wear it will stretch out a bit.
I'm not a huge fan of the back of the flat, with the elastic band, probably designed to avoid chafing your ankle, because it will actually make the flats slip off my feet sometimes. I don't know if that happens to anyone else? Also, they were extremely uncomfortable in the beginning and I had to wear them quite a few times to break them in properly. But beauty is pain, right?
I really can't say anything bad about the quality of these flats. The leather is soft and the medallion logo have stayed put even after 1.5 years of wearing them, and wearing them often.
When I bought my first pair of Reva's, the black Nappa leather ones with the gold medallion, they were under US$200. Now, you can buy the same pair for US$225. The patent leather ones are a little more expensive at US$235.
I personally love the Tory Burch Reva ballet flats. I think they are beautiful, elegant and classic. I take very good care of my shoes and wear them often, which makes it worth the price. My pair of black Nappa leather Reva flats has become a staple in my closet, and I'll repurchase them one day when I've worn out my current pair.

I've also purchased the Tory Burch Sophie wedge in black with the gold logo medallion, and the Tory Burch Emmy flat thong sandals in tan. With these, I also had to buy them in a half size up.
