Satin slippers

I’ve always chosen satin flats since I’ve started dancing. Actually, when I went to (a very few) ballet classes as a little girl my mum put me in gorgeous little satin slippers and not the creaky leather ones everyone else in my class wore. Divaahh…

At the moment I have Bloch’s split-sole satin shoes. They’re actually due for replacement very soon – the ball of my big toe is rubbing through on both sides. I KNOW canvas lasts longer! I know you can pop your canvas shoes in the wash! I may even try on some canvas ones in the shop! But I know I’ll buy some little satin beauties.  My reasoning is that –

a) they’re cheaper

b) on my amateur class schedule they’re not going to wear out anytime soon

c) they keep their shape fine and my feet are very comfortable

d) I absolutely love the lustre of satin. I love how it feels to the touch and on the floor. I love the precise colour of Bloch’s pale salmon-y nude-y pink.

Maybe I’m buying into the mystique of the satin-and-tulle ballerina -but satin slippers just look SO GOOD. Why does nobody wear them?
