I want to thank La Mom for mentioning Jaime Mascaro flats to me. JM is a company located in Spain. According to the company website, Mascaró started making ballet shoes by hand on the Mediterranean island of Menorca in 1918, and today marries the most advanced design and manufacturing technologies with traditional craftsmanship. Jaime Mascaró is the parent company of the brands Jaime Mascaro, Ursula Mascaro, Pretty Ballerinas, Calzados Ferreries and Bini Bini. The prestigious Spanish fashion footwear house employs traditional craftsmen in making it´s fine footwear products, many of which are still largely hand made.
I find these flats refreshing and savvy, not to mention the price is fairly reasonable. The website is supposed to offer free shipping. Although the retail prices are quoted in Euro, we can pay in Euro, Sterling Pound or US Dollar. I am happy about that. If a company can stay in business for 90 years making flats, I think that says something about quality of goods.1.
