The Sam & Libby Ballet Flat Turns 25...

Back in 1987 Sam and Libby Edeman launched their iconic bow flat, which, 25 years later, remains a wardrobe staple for young women everywhere. And since 2013, the duo has thrilled fans with exciting new fabrics, jewels and colors with their exclusive Sam & Libby line at Target.

Looking back, Sam & Libby reveal that their version of the classic ballet shoe was inspired by street fashion and by a photo of Brigitte Bardot, one of the greatest movie stars of all time, in St. Tropez. The ballet flat itself emerged in France from Repetto – the great dancing shoes. Sam & Libby embellished their version with a bow because it resonated with the American woman.
