Ballet Inspired Shoes Fit For Walking The Streets

By Thyui Smith

If it weren’t for the demands of her ballet dancer son, Rose Repetto would never have made the first of these shoes. In 1947, the nagging of Roland Petit to his mother to make him ballet en pointe shoes was the beginning of a company that has influence shoes designs through the years.

From the stage to the streets of Paris, the first of the shoes captured the eyes of starlet Brigitte Bardot and was captured on camera for her film . More than half a century later, the shoes are still much in demand simply because of the comfort for the wearer and the designs that are timeless.

Since the ballet en pointe shoes emerged, there have been countless imitations and followers of the designs of the shoes. Till this day, the designs of sixty years ago are still being made and remade into so many versions but all sticking to the same platform of ballet shoes for the streets. Although the other brands may be more affordable, the quality is not the same and the designs are definitely way below par.

Someone saw a decline upon the death of its founder and it took a long time for someone to surface and buy the company and bring back the glory of the company name. Jean-Marc Gaucher, former CEO of a rival shoe company, saved Repetto and through genius, regained the glory of the company.

Today’s it has regained the glory that it once had and beyond. The shoes are now fashion setting and the fans of the shoes have continued to purchase them despite what people say about the cost. For the comfort that it can provide the wearer, be it stilettos or ballet flats, there is no difference. The quality has only improved in both design and comfort and its consumers are never disappointed.
