Canvas vs Leather ballet shoes

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

Do you prefer canvas or leather ballet flats? I currently use leather, but I would be curious to know what people prefer and why.

Also, is there a big difference between drawstring or elastic around the shoe?

I highly prefer canvas! It usually matches the color of my tights better, makes promenades & turning easier, and is less wrinkly so it shows off my arch better! I have heard that some teachers prefer leather because it provides more resistance against the floor so it makes your feet stronger.

I also prefer elastic around the shoe because it is more comfortable and makes a cleaner line. Currently I am wearing SoDanca canvas ballet flats, which I am loving!

Thank you! I am planning on getting new shoes soon, (I am outgrowing my current ones) and will ask to try on some canvas!

Leather is nice because it has helps strengthen my feet like chasseallday said. Canvas is great as a performance shoe if you're doing a piece on flat however.
