Why Ballerina shoes?

13 Feb

Everyone’s talking about it. Everyone’s buying new pairs of these shoes for themselves and their lovely daughters. Is everybody really joining ballet classes of some sort? That seems quite unlikely, but then why is everybody talking about ballet shoes and ballerina flats. It doesn’t make sense till you really buy a pair for yourself and walk for an entire day. At the end of the day, the level of your energies will speak volumes about these shoes.

Yes, you are indeed right. These shoes are meant for ballet dancers. Ballet shoes are tight fitting, flexible, flats which are extremely comfortable. Ballet dancers wear these while doing tough balances on their feet and yet show their beautiful moves. The history of these shoes dates back to 15th and 16th century. Even then the simplistic yet practical design of these shoes was very similar to that of today. At that time in Italy, these were called “balletos”. By 17th century, ballerina shoes were getting manufactured silk with gold buckles on the top for decoration. Later in 19th century, these shoes were also created in canvas for much more comfort to the dancer. Pointe shoe was another name of these because only by wearing these, the dancers could stand on the tip of their toes and enchant the crowd.
