The idea behind the design of this shoe is to almost position the wearer's foot into an en pointe position like the ballerinas; with the presence of long, thin heels in the design. How do Ballet Boots fit? When worn, the feet are almost in a vertical position due to the design and hence push all the body weight to the front of the toes. But if the shoe is perfectly fitted; then the shoe will be held at users heel, thus reducing the body weight on the toes. This type of shoe design pushes the boundaries for a sexy look by mimicking the posture of a ballerina.
