A ballerina's point shoe is the inspiration for this style - complete with pleats at the front! An internal platform under the ball of the foot gives extra height and a sense of depth that gave us the space to create the block like toe shape - and room for the pleating. We have placed the heel inside the back area rather than on the outside to further enhance the ballet point feel - and create a sleek seamless finish. Making this style with the internal heel and platform is quite complicated as it involves molding stiff materials over a deep curve and requires a high level of expertise – this is a feature that we have been playing with for over 20 years and creates a really interesting sculptural silhouette – and of course it features a lovely secret detail just for you in the interesting sole shape underneath.
We've kept the colour options super clean and simple for this style - classic red and black.
The ballet point is a classic reference for the shoe aficionado - romantic and yet somehow dangerous and alluring (think of the classic ballet and film featuring Melbourne’s own Sir Robert Helpman - the Red Shoes). Here we've used this romance in an understated way - bringing you a shoe that reveals its design secrets in a quiet yet edgy manner.
The fit of this style is true to size.
Beautiful, light, comfortable shoes. Service and delivery were prompt. They are wonderful to wear. I love them!
