This is a perfect and very honest video about ballerina's MOST important asset - her pointe shoes.
I couldn't have put it better.
Years ago I was approached too by a mature ballerina that told be that my shoes were not good enough for my feet ( though I didn't seem to notice) , and then she gave me a pair that fit better then a glove. I seriously felt like I could fly. That was beginning of my point shoes love story.
I go through a pair of shoes a day, sometimes , a class, and , often, 2-3 per performance. And, unless, supplied by a company ( which happens in big ones, but not so much in smaller ones, and never in freelancing), usually it's a personal expense. You know the saying " don't blow it all in one place?" , we have a better version : " don't blow it all on the point shoes".
So, in the world of fashion, this is , probably, my biggest obsession yet.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WOULD YOU GO ON POINT?
IF YOU ALREADY DO - WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE MAKER? (i'm definitely partial to Freeds)
