A recent fascination is the beauty of En Pointe. Seeing a Ballet dancer standing on her toes is the height of grace and elegance. There is also the discipline and time it takes for the dancer to train themselves to both balance and glide effortlessly. In some circles it has been fetishised, hence why ballet shoes can also be deeply desired in fetish circles (see middle picture). The pain element may also play a part in its appeal. If done badly the resulting disfigurement would terrible. Yes these are no good for walking in, still who said that is they only way to enjoy shoes? Seeing the first picture would imply that Christian Louboutin does Ballet pumps? Tragically no, these darlings are a regular pair of pairs owned by Dita Von Teese and her friend Christian Louboutin ‘red soled’ them. Alright for some!
Grace and Discipline
