leather ballet slippers?


Recommended Posts


I've heard some people say that they like leather ballet slippers better than canvas ones because you have to work through your foot harder and more in a leather shoe than you do in a canvas one. Is this true? The last time I had leather shoes was in 4th or 5th grade, so I can't remember having to work very hard on my feet in them, but I was just wondering about that...

For my money, the uppers really don't matter. It's the soles that provide resistance. Technique shoe uppers are only a little stiffer than glove leather.
