Ballet slippers are not just for little girls in tutus. Not only are they perfect for sticking in your bag when those sky-high Louboutins become too painful (no bunions for us!), they are a chic alternative to Uggs when schlepping around the city. Amy Winehouse (RIP) loved a good pair of ballet flats, as do glamourous first ladies like Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. But no need to spend a fortune to get A-list treatment--check out our favorite pairs for under $50.
