We heart our ballet flats! Every woman who loves a comfortable shoe, knows that ballet flats are a must-have!

So how did ballet shoes come about?

Ballet shoes (also known as ballet slippers) are designed for ballet dancing. Used in traditional and modern ballet dancing, they are light weight and can be made from satin, canvas or leather with a thin, flexible sole. The fit is paramount to maintain safety during performance, also sitting closely on the foot to retain flexibility. How are they secured? With two elastic bans or ribbons across the arch of the foot.

The Ballet shoes quality will vary according to the material that has been used, leather ballet shoes are durable and last the longest, whereas satin ballet shoes are usually worn during performances and tend to wear out quickly.

Today ballet shoes are not only used for dancing, but also for every day wear-known as ballet flats. Why ballet flats? Well, they are flat, comfortable to walk in and compliment almost any outfit- adding a bit of chic and a very feminine look. Some even consider ballet flats a mandatory wardrobe staple.

I have been shoe-obsessed for the greater part of my life! From stick figures with elaborately illustrated heels as a child, to my first part-time job in a shoe boutique, to a Cinderella tale of marrying into a 'shoe' family! I was a destined cobbler. The last 20 years have been dedicated to footwear design. I blend my knowledge of colour, material and form to create silhouettes that evoke glamour and elegance. I draw every sketch, select materials and finalise each construction detail that produces all ShoeSales.com.au shoes. I do this with passion - appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes. My philosophy “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!” Google Plus
