Keep it classy and have your best possible race day walking in colour and comfort in a pair of Camminos!
After the racing season is over we launch into Christmas party season so the need for the perfect flat shoe becomes even more essential.Cammino ballet flats are foldable to fit into your bag to ensure you never have to leave the party early due to achey feet.
Read on to discover our top 7 tips for wearing ballet flats this Racing and Party Season
1. All day delights
A great race day will often start with a champagne breakfast and before you know it you’ll be hitting the track mid-morning for race one. Once you’ve had some more champagne and a few cheeky bets, some food and countless photos in your race day get up. Before you know it you’ll be heading home and you realise you’ve been out all day. Instead of suffering from sore feet make a pair of Cammino ballet flats the highlight of your race day. Be comfortable and stylish in a pair of handmade Italian leather flats.
2. Home time flats
Have a pair of foldable flats in your race day purse for when your feet have had enough of those heels. Make it home in comfort with a pair of women's ballet flats made from the softest leather. Our handmade Italian flats are foldable and fit easily into a bag or clutch and are ideal for carrying with you for changing into at the end of a long fun day. Avoid the hometime hangover and have a pair of ballet flats for a quick shoe change at the track. Be prepared with a pair of ballets on race day and get home in comfort with Cammino.
3. At any length
Variety is the spice of life and finding an outfit for the races is often the best part. The Races are also a great place to try out a new look or add to your look with a piece that will fit in with your existing wardrobe.

Ensure you're on-trend with a great race day outfit and pair it with our handmade Italian leather flats. Whatever style you choose, know that a pair of women’s flats will suit any outfit.
4. Wet track
Melbourne is known for having four seasons in one day so wet weather footwear is a must for any day but especially for a race day. Keeping your feet dry and comfortable will make your track day last well into the night. End up at an after-party or head out for dinner without the need to stop for a shoe change. Have your foldable flats with you and change your footwear whenever you need or wear your Camminos all day long. Keep them in your bag ready for a quick shoe change and keep your feet dry. And a huge bonus is they come with a cute cloth bag to store them in and protect that gorgeous soft leather.

The races can be a long day so your travel time there should be easy. Make sure you arrive feeling fresh, comfortable and stylish in a pair of Cammino ballet flats. Have a pair of heels ready to change into once you get to the track or spend all day in your ballet flats. Either way arriving with your best foot forward means your day can only get better!
