Reviews for Amazon Essentials Women's Belice Ballet Flat
People say Amazon Essentials is really similar to Lucky Brand.
Umm yeah get them!
Okay so this is totally the dupe for the Lucky Brand ballet flat. I’ve had those before. And I loved them. But at the moment didn’t want to spend more on it. That’s just my opinion. But these look the same. And to be honest fit better. The Lucky Brand would always hurt after I took them off. These I wore them today to work. I work in sales and I’m standing for 8+ hours a day. And I didn’t feel like if I was gunna get blisters or anything. I love them. I got them in the nude [beige] and the black. Totally worth it! Buy them. Do not hesitate!
Best budget flats yet!
Definitely worth the money for a Lucky Brand or equivalent leather flat dupe! True to size with no break in period since not real leather but feels just as smooth. No toe cleavage and no weird noises when walking. I wear between a 7 and 7.5 and bought the 7.5 in these to be on the safe side.
Good quality for price
If you’re looking for a cheaper version of the lucky brand flats, these are pretty decent. Just as with the lucky brand flats, I would recommend getting a half size up, unless you want a tighter fit. There’s a surprising amount of cushion, way more than most other flats I’ve worn, and they’re a pretty soft/flexible material. I ordered the light camel color cause I wanted a color similar to the actual ballet flats I used to wear to lessons as a kid and I’m happy to say they’re pretty close to that color. So far I don’t have any blisters or sore spots on my Achilles like I get with most flats.
Great basic flat. Cushioned sole & nice for work
Very basic flat I can wear to work or with jeans. Looks like a cheaper version of the lucky brand flats, which I don’t mean in a bad way (it is much cheaper than the lucky brand flats—so I think that’s fair!) For me, flats get dirty and gross especially when wearing them all the time, and they have to be tossed every so often. This is a great solution to the guilty feeling I get when they have to be tossed and replaced (spending money to replace them.) Love that they have cushioning in the sole, unlike other inexpensive pairs. And the sizes available are great — I usually have to size up because of the width of my foot but a 9W fit great, I bought a few pairs! So far they aren’t getting worn any more easily than any other “more expensive” pair I have.
They look great and are comfortable--if you size up
I usually wear a size 6.5 to 7 M in US sizes. I ordered these shoes in both 7 M and 7.5 M, as I previously bought Lucky Brand Emmie flats and found 7.5 M the best fit. The same is true of these very cute ballet flats, which I ordered in the dark green and the snake print. My feet aren't narrow, but neither are they particularly wide. The issue was in the toe box, which was a little tighter than I liked in the size 7. Those with narrow feet might find their usual size fits fine. Otherwise, I recommend going up a half size.
Soft Comfortable Ballet Shoes!
I had read the good reviews and decided to give them a try, so glad I did! I have some Lucky Brand ballet shoes that I am still not very happy with but these are wayyyy better!!! I will be buying more in other colors. They fit great and are very soft and comfortable! The price is affordable so you should at least give them a try ( :
I purchased these and the Lucky Brand shoe that looks almost exactly the same. I returned the $60 Lucky shoes. These are very comfortable if you like a barefoot shoe. The Lucky brand cut right across my big toes and left a mark. These right out of the box were comfortable and didn't need a break in period. Would purchase these again. I don't know how long they will last but for $20 there are well worth the money for the comfort!
I have been buying the Lucky brand of these for ages - at nearly double the price. These are as comfortable, MORE durable, and for much less cost. I will be buying these from now on.
Comfortable and Hold Up Well
I used to wear Lucky Brand flats and they wore out fairly quickly and were a bit uncomfortable. These amazon essentials flats might not be leather, but they are SO MUCH MORE comfortable and way less expensive. I started buying them in different colors for work and love them. I sized up a half size when buying them.
Great alternative to Lucky brand ballet shoes
I have bought TONS of pairs of the Lucky brand ballet shoes in multiple colors. I wore them to work every day and wore them out and replaced them - basically I just wore them a ton. The problem with those was that the back of the shoe would eat into the back of my heel. I had perma-dents in my ankle from them. I wore out my last pair of Lucky brand black ballet shoes a while ago and hadn't replaced them. When I logged onto Amazon to look for a new pair, the Amazon Essentials pair came up. I usually wore a 7.5 in the Lucky brand, and after reading the reviews I bought an 8 in the Amazon pair. They look great - I didn't expect the quality for a $20 pair of shoes. I was happy to see that they don't dig into my heels. They fit well and are comfortable; I'll buy these from now on instead of the Lucky brand.
