I'm a teacher in need of a pair of comfy durable good looking black flats, but cant tell the difference between the choices.
The Manhattan ballet flats are more comfortable on my feet than the Avery's, with a softer/more cushioned sole. I wear high heels all of the time, but the final month of pregnancy had me searching for a cute pair of versatile black flats for work and play. As my job requires a lot of walking, I have been wearing Cole Haan ballerina flats for several years - I can't get enough of them!It's a large size handbag too but looks okay when worn.Just can't wear as a shoulder bag when wearing a coat.The Manhattan ballet seems to have the same elegant black patent appearance that will make any outfit fit for a lady just as the Nike Air ballet did.What's the difference between the stagedoor ballet and the manhattan ballet flat?

Featuring a woven leather exterior, a single strap and a slouchy top with snap closure, while gold-toned hardware adds a rich touch to this versatile hobo silhouette.
I prefer the shorter strap because the purse is closer to your body which to me provides me a sense of security when I about and about that no one can reach into my purse and try to take my wallet.
Two things I don't like are the magnetic closure inside, gets in my way, and the drop is too short, would like a few more inches so that it is a true shoulder bag. Yes it does fit over your should and is very comfortable.
