    Ballerina Shoes

    Ballerina shoes are slipper-like, flat-heeled shoes that have a closed toe. Inspired by dancers slippers they are light-weight often with a flexible sole and being low cut, show the majority of the top of the foot. Claire McCardell was the first designer to present ballerina shoes in one of her fashion shows in 1941. 1949 ballerina shoes were first shown on the cover of Vogue and led to a large popularity of the shoe. Movie stars around that time such as Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn started wearing ‘ballerinas’, as they are commonly called and helped them to gain even more success.
