Two-tone ballerina shoes have a pink patterned upper with black patent lather toecaps. The pink uppers have a black and white design that appears as if drawn freehand. It features the word 'chanel' and the interlocking Cs. The mouth of the shoe is trimmed in a pink cotton tape. At the top of the opening of the shoe are two pink leather cords which tie in a bow. The shoes are slightly raised with a black 7 mm heel.
