These darling flats from Painted Bird has us extending our "pack these shoes for travel" highlights to more than one post, so get ready to add to your winter getaway wardrobe. Crocheted fashions always makes me think of summer or some tropical locale with warm balmy weather and that's what I imagine when I picture these Painted Bird Wave Crocheted Ballet Flats. Named after Wave Street in Laguna Beach, the Wave flat is a staple stripe shoe in black and sand (of course Painted Bird offers a variety of colors and patterns in their crocheted flats). Made in Rayon/Silk yarn with a leather insole and rubber sole, the artisan crafted, hand crocheted shoe is both playful and sophisticated. It will compliment any look and can easily become an everyday shoe.

Because it is crocheted, the Painted Bird shoes will fit comfortable upon first use;  it will feel snug around the toe, and comfortable on the back but will give in the toe area after 1-2 wears allowing for an even more comfortable experience. So whether you live in an area with year-round warm weather or are planning a winter escape to the tropics, make sure to add a pair or two of these delightful flats to your suitcase.

Each Painted Bird flat (both the regular ballet flat or the on-trend flats with ankle straps) retails for $68.00 a pair and can be purchased at
