About

Ballerini presents Perfetta: a unique line of Ballerina Flats featuring excepcional fit, high quality craftsmanship and great materials.

PERFETTA FEATURES:

1) EXCEPTIONAL FIT: We've spent the last months improving our fit, collaborating with hundreds of women and shoe makers to understand exactly what would be an incredibly comfortable ballerina flat. We believe we've developed the "Wonderbra" of ballerina flats. Never before a ballet flat have featured soo many comfort items at the same time. We’re talking super padded insoles, special cushions in stress points, padded lining, breathable materials, and more. Perfettas are smooth and fluffy inside and beautiful on the outside. You've got to try it on to feel it. 

2) QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP: Handcrafted with exceptional quality in a top manufacturer in Brazil, our shoes focus on just one thing: being the perfect ballerina flat!

3) SAME MATERIALS, NEW USE.  Our materials are simple: things extensively used in the textile and leather industry, just applied in an innovative way that puts comfort in first place. 

4) WHOLESALE PRICE: We're selling these shoes directly online to skip the middleman and traditional retail markups. 

5) OUR GUARANTEE: You'll instantly feel the difference when you put on your Perfetta. We're so confident that we guarantee it with free returns for store credit (see full details below), no matter where you are in the world.

WHO WE ARE

Ballerini is a shoe company founded by two girls with a head full of dreams and an entrepreneurial soul. Unsatisfied with the level of comfort of their shoes, they thought something should be done! They wanted fabulousness, but above all they wanted comfort. Through a successful crowdfunding project, they launched the Ballerini brand in 2013 with an e-commerce model and a tiny collection. Though it was a success, the founders remained unsettled with the comfort level available in the shoe market. With almost 10 years of experience in big fashion brands, they both knew exactly what they wanted: something unique, something special, a revolution. So, they decided to start from scratch and develop a new kind of ballerina flat, better fitted for our modern, active and fashionable lifestyle. The result is right here.

HELP GET PRODUCTION STARTED

We're raising $20,000 to get production started for the Perfetta line. From our first crowdfunding campaign, we were able to get the Ballerini company up and running in Sao Paulo, so the funding for this campaign will specifically be put towards launching the new Perfetta line. This includes the costs of buying the materials, as well as the costs of labour in making the shoes. Please support us at whatever level you're comfortable with. In return, you can get a pair of our ballerina flats at an amazing price. By selling directly to you online, we can offer you our wholesale price with worldwide delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

Simply try the ballerina flats on and we guarantee that you'll instantly feel the difference or the return is on us. This means that if you don't like the Perfetta for any reason, just email us and we will send you a pre-paid shipping label to return the pair back to us. The beauties will need to be unworn and in their original packaging, and returned within 14 days of receipt. Upon receipt of the ballerina flats, we will issue you full store credit to use on our website.

JOIN US AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD

We're excited to get the Perfetta line launched on Kickstarter. After you support us, we would love it if you could help us spread the word and share our video with friends. You can find us on Facebook (Ballerini Sapatilhas), Twitter (ballerinibr), and Instagram (ballerinishoes). If you have any questions or just want to say hi, you can email us anytime at sac@ballerinishoes.com.br

Risks and challenges

Timing is always the biggest risk when it comes to fashion projects. Good thing is: our manufacturing partners are big and settled companies in Brazil that are ready to go. We're also looking to reduce the risk of delay by staggering our delivery dates into batches according to when our customers place their orders and we're also going to get production started immediately once we hit our goal of $20,000 through weekly orders until the end of the campaign.
