This clip, "How it's made: BALLET SLIPPERS", was mentioned in BT4D.

Thanks; that was interesting. I especially enjoyed the ads for American Hotrod and American Chopper superimposed over the pink satin pointe shoes. Must be an interesting audience they're aiming for. :excl:

Yes, thanks, innopac.

I've read about the process, of course but, not surprisingly, seeing it adds greater appreciation of the craft.

New York City Ballet has posted this new, very interesting, clip :

"The Importance of the Perfect Fit. Principal Dancer Megan Fairchild discusses her pointe shoes."

That was very interesting. :D

I was amazed at how much the company has to spend on shoes. :)
