As you can see, there is a huge price difference. I actually love the SJP flats as they are extremely similar to real ballet shoes. The finishings on this shoe are so pretty and the bow is very delicate. Plus the high quality leather is so soft and beautiful.The Louise et Cie flats are not quite as delicate, but the leather is soft and good quality. I don't like the chunkier bow as much, but I also don't mind it.
While I love the SJP flats more, the price difference was just too much. I ended up ordering the more affordable pair. And even better - they were part of the Anniversary sale for $70! I think I can survive the compromises I made for saving over $200.
