Pick a color.

Pick a color.

In college I worked for a dancewear store and was taught how to fit both the ballet slipper and the toe shoe. (They don’t fit like regular shoes, but that’s another story.) I often thought, why should these cute slippers be just for ballet? One day I bought a pair for myself in mauve (they only came in black and mauve) and wore them around the house.

Since then the “ballet flat” silhouette has become a wardrobe staple for women and Linge Shoes is taking a step forward into the real thing. They have come out with a line of what they call shoes that are indeed actual ballet slippers.

Super comfortable and soft, Linge Shoes ballet slippers are made of soft leather in fun, bright colors and I say are a perfect choice for indoor sporting:

  • around the house with silk pajamas – what elegance!
  • at work when you need a break from those heels
  • on a long flight or car ride
  • they would be supper cute at a lawn party

Do you have a no-shoe policy in your home? Keep a basket of Linge Shoes ballet slippers for your guests. I also see these colorful slippers on the bride at her reception and what great bridesmaids gifts. Unlike the traditional ballet slipper they fit true to size, the vamp comes up a little higher and the elastic strap is already sewn on.

I have to say that I don’t recommend these for street wear because they really are made just like a ballet dance slipper with the pleats at the toe and a thin suede sole, which offers no support. I’m hoping one day soon Linge Shoes will put a sole on that slipper and make it a shoe!
