Marc Jacobs is a fashion designer best known for his creative, fashion forward collections for his own brand and for Louis Vuitton. The Marc Jacobs brand combines high fashion collections with fun, youthful, stylish pieces that show off his sense of humor. One of his most recognizable signature items is the ballerina flat. Every Marc Jacobs footwear collection has a ballerina flat and most of them tend to have a bit of toe cleavage. His shoes will also often have a playful element, such as a fun print or a cute embellishment. While they may not be the most glamorous or sexy of designer shoes, Marc Jacobs ballerina flats are a practical, comfortable, and very cool fashion classic.
