Ballet News Selects….. Spots!

ballet shoesA bit of fun today.  When it comes to ballet shoes, what could lift your spirits more than a dash of pink with over-sized white spots ? What I love about these shoes, besides the fun pattern, is that it extends around the base of the shoe – so often plimsolls have a plain white rubber surround which is just plain dull – plus it gets dirty and scuffed really quickly.  When the designer is more generous and covers the whole shoe with their design, I think it’s unusual and covetable.

Superga has teamed up with designer Henry Holland, who is often seen at ballet events, with this range of easy to wear dotty plimsolls. £60; slightly more if you want the platform version.

House of Holland reworks Superga’s casual classic 2750 incorporating the fun SS12 House of Holland leopard print. The range has a pastel based palette drawn from Henry’s ‘Pastel Punks’ SS12 show which was a giddy cotton candy-coloured chiffon collective.

With an extra strong, fully breathable pure cotton upper the timeless 2750 is a lightweight, simple canvas tennis shoe with vulcanised rubber sole. In production since 1911, this is a shoe you can genuinely dress up or dress down. Machine wash at 30 degrees with neutral soap and they’ll age perfectly, just like your favourite pair of jeans.

Have fun !
