Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats Features
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 Toryburch 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.”
Here’s a round up the best black ballet flats!
Tory Burch Minnie Flats in Goan Sand/Sand
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.”
Tip: one way to boost support in ballet flats is to wear them with gel inserts.
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!)
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!

Perhaps you don’t want to pack heels, but want to dress up and look a bit more polished for those days you aren’t sightseeing, such as going to a nice dinner or an event, then this flat won’t disappoint you.
Seriously, these could easily become my go-to travel shoe.

Tory Burch Minnie Flats in Perfect Black
What I like about the Tory Burch Minnie flats is they’re offered in multiple colors and prints, with different hardware choices, either colored or gold, so they can be styled to suit anyone’s taste.
This is a dead-on ringer for a spring and summer shoe, but can also be worn in early fall, with a pair of cute tights. The Minnie ballet flat can definitely transition from jeans to a skirt or a travel dress with ease.
Overall, readers say these flats are awesome for going through the airport, light walking, or when you want to dress up an outfit.
Tory Burch Minnie Flats in Dark Azalea
Readers say the Tory Burch foldable flats work well for those with narrow feet. One says, “I’m a narrow UK9/US11 and I find Tory Burch cap toe flat fits surprisingly well!’
I concur with this and find these on more of the narrow side versus boxy or square. Because of my height, I generally prefer pointed toe shoes over round ones, but these strike a perfect balance between a round and a pointy toe.
Sometimes with ballet flats, they can fall closer to the toes, or the toes are completely covered and higher on their foot. Everyone has a preference, but I find the Tory Burch ballet shoes sit well. I love where it falls on my toes, It’s not too high and hits right at the beginning of my toes.
Even if they fit on the narrow side, some readers with wide feet dig the Tory Burch flats sizing. “Love the Minnie’s and I’ve got big feet.”
Tory Burch Minnie Flats – Printed Style
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!”

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.
These are the best walking shoes for Europe!
Tory Burch flats are popular with readers who say this shoe is packable, super chic, and made of quality leather that’s soft and comfortable, and therefore, they can be broken in fairly easily.
Because of the craftsmanship and the logo medallion hardware, these can complement a pretty dress, but also look equally stylish with dark jeans, a tee, and a cardigan.
Though these aren’t exactly a walking shoe, they can still be used for short bursts and hold up. Overall, these make a solid addition to your airplane outfit and capsule wardrobe.
This was actually something that’s been recommended by readers for years. I’m glad to finally get my own set. I’m a new fan of the Tory Burch Minnie flats!

How to Pack Your Flats
Maybe you want to pack your Tory Burch flats after wearing them on the plane or choose to wear a different pair home, start by selecting a container such as a shoe bag or a packing cube, then pack according to your type of luggage. See more in the video below.
Watch this video to start learning how to organize with packing cubes!
Whether you have a front loading or top loading backpack, it’s crucial to put your shoes first, at the bottom. If you’re planning to pack shoes in a rolling carry-on, remember that it stands sideways, so it’s important to note how it functions when it is upright. Most often, your shoes will need to be packed close to the wheels, so that the luggage maintains its balance in transit.
