That don't cost an arm and leg! (Though obviously willing to spend a bit, you get what you pay for etc)

All the ones I buy seem to fall apart in 3 seconds flat.

Anyone got any recommendations?

What about French Sole?

these square toe ones at Dotty Ps are my favourites. Only £16 and they wear out before they fall apart iyswim. I just bought 2 pairs in the black as i'm scared they will discontinue the shape and they are the only ballet flats I can find that I like! I have the leopard from last year too still going strong.

Dune ballerinas are very comfy, don't know their long-lastingness!

I find pumps from george at asda last aaages and are no more then about 12 quid.

I had a couple pairs last four years and the only bit that got worn was the pattern on the toe....and i walked my dog in them and in the rain.

Hush Puppies ballet pumps are the best they cost about £50 full price but worth every penny

Clarks do ones for around £30 that are really comfy and wear pretty well.

Jones the bootmaker have some lovely ones and currently have a 30% flash sale on.

Second vote for Clarks here. Very comfy and good quality, price around 30-35 so not bad

And another one for Clarks. I have black patent ones I wear daily to work in the winter and they are just starting to wear out after five years.
