Sure we’re about ballroom.
And sure the below is only a concept (at least at this pointe … pun intended!)
But I saw this concept shoe and couldn’t pass up sharing it!
From the designer:
The Arc Angel is a footwear solution that will reduce the impact on dancers feet while in pointework training. The Arc has major support provided by installed elastic bands, which will encourage proper technique of this form of art. Traditional pointe shoes usually last 8-10 weeks. Using durable materials, the Arc angels will last the dancer for a longer period of time.
I hope it see production soon, I think they’re awesome! See more at http://www.behance.net/gallery/NIKE-ARC-ANGELS-%28Pointe-shoe-training%29/3346353
You might consider commenting or giving it an “appreciate this” … you never know what your input might help do!
