For me worth it if you buy in Europe. Bought 5 pairs last time I was in Paris. They are so comfy. I love my Repettos!

 :)

Repetto is going to have a store here in Manila.  The Bench Group is bringing it here.

Magkano kaya???

To be honest, I don't think they're worth it.  The soles are very thin, and there is no arch support.  The leather may be soft, but it's also very thin.

There are a lot of other ballet flat options out there that are just as comfortable, way cheaper, more durable and frankly, more stylish.

If you like basic flats, Topshop has a cheaper version of the basic Repetto black flat, it's about P2,200 locally. Here's the link on their website: Malachy flats

What I do like about Repetto though is the variety of color options.  So if you're looking for basic leather flats in a not-so-common color, Repetto is a good choice.

^Thin soles are the concept of ballet flats anyway, right?  ;)  Mine though aren't so thin as they have rubber grip soles stitched on.

@m_lim, they range from EUR80 and up. Less ka pa ng tax rebate of 12%. The ones I got were in the EUR100-110 range. I couldn't resist the yummy colors so I ended up with 5 pairs  ;D  Good luck sa budget!

There's a stand alone store in Rue de la Paix in Paris. Daming colors and styles to choose from.  They have high heels too.  :)

A Repetto boutique will be opening soon at Greenbelt 3! Sana naman their prices are not as prohibitive as the ones being sold at Rustans. It's Suyen Corp. who is bringing them in. Same owners of Bench ito di ba?

they're cute but i find them too expensive. i could buy a pair of leather flats at half of Repetto's price.

I still think they're worth it. For those with feet na madaling magsugat or magkalyo, repettos are great. Super soft leather and magaan sa paa. I buy sa Dutyfree rin when I go to Pinas. Though konti lang colors, but the basic colors are available naman. I wonder how much ang basic flats sa GB3?

I just found out that there is a Repetto outlet store in Paris! Depending on the model the price range is from 30-50% off from their main boutique or stalls at the department store. I just hope they have my size when I visit next month.   ::)

^sis, it's in the city also at the Montmartre area. Address is 24 rue de Chateaudun 75009. It's actually a dance school at the ground floor, the shoes are sold upstairs. Let me know where you're staying so I can give you directions how to get there. If you still have the time hehe...

Just came from there and the prices are from EUR 80 to 120 for the ballerina flats. Mind you the items are limited in style, color and sizes. Only got a pair that I liked, pink Cendrillons!   :). They stock up every two to three weeks.

Repettos are worth their price. That's the advantage -- the repertoire of colors that challenge Tod's line-up.   

However I prefer the ballet flats of JCrew ($130 at Woodbury) for bug bog no-guilt use (kahit maulanan :)).  But I really prefer Prada's version -- the ones with big bows  :). Which offer a better hold on the feet, IMO -- though the colors are not as yummy as Repettos'.   Bottom line, every traveling/career girl should have at least 1 Repetto pair. 

MAMA SQUEAK, be careful -- someone just  might kill for your yummy collection.  :). Ka inggit ka ha!

@aquacharly, I'd kill for your B collection! LOL!   ;)

@foxymom, I saw a lot of big sizes (I'm a 41) but the styles and colors were very limited. That's why I only ended up with a pair. I had to go pa to their Rue De La Paix boutique to get the colors and styles that I wanted.

I really swear by my Repettos! They were my savior with all the walking we've been doing during our trip. Cobbled stones pa yan ha! They got rained on too! Really worth the price I paid!
