Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
PlanetShoes.com, a lifestyle retailer committed to helping people live healthier, more eco-friendly lives, is pleased to announce the addition of French Sole to their growing selection of fashionable footwear for women. French Sole has been stealing the scene since the 1980s and is known for ballet flats that fuse true fashion and cozy comfort, with an emphasis on proper fitting.
“We think French Sole is a cut above the rest when it comes to fashionable flats,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “But don’t take our word for it. French Sole has been featured on the pages of Vogue and Lucky magazines and spotted on the feet of style luminaries ranging from Elizabeth Taylor to Cindy Crawford. We know our customers will love their blend of classic comfort and style.”
PlanetShoes.com is carrying a variety of ballet flats from French Sole, including prints, patents and peep-toes.
About French Sole
Randy Ochart, owner of French Sole and the FS/NY brand, has passionately focused on designing, manufacturing and marketing fashion ballerina flats for more than twenty-five years. And now the stars are aligned because ballerinas are red hot. The FS/NY label of fashion ballet flats he produces in France, Spain, Italy and Brazil are the must have shoe of the season. When asked about the future of the ballerinas, as a category, Ochart explained, “In a phase when it seems that everybody feels the need to re-invent the ballerina, we stand alone as specialists. The extraordinary factories we have worked with for so many years understand the distinction between a ballerina and a flat shoe with a string attached. Two of our factories have been making quality ballet flats for over a century! The fit, the look and the ‘hand’ of a ballerina is what we’re about, not a hot trend, which peaks and fades in the fashion cycle. Our success is based on the fusion of true comfort and real fashion and our clients appreciate this and tend to ignore the pretenders. We have even experienced the faux flattery of companies attempting to imitate our concept and unsuccessfully exploit our trademark, but after twenty years, we have seen it all before. Loving what you do well makes all the difference.”
