These are so pretty! They make me wish I were a ballet dancer just to have an excuse to wear them! Grin

OMG My friend is on pointe and wants a pair of red and black shoes. ^^ I was hesitant to dye them because he told me that you can't get the box wet. This is so exciting ^^ I can't weight to show him. . . he can only buy one brand of ready made shoe in his size. How did the box hold up to the dye?

Gorgeous shoes! ^^ heheh all I can think of is Kate Bush and the curse of the pretty red shoes.

  For all you dance people out there, they're Bloch Suprimas, and they were actually in worse shape than this when I decided to dye them.  I had to get rid of them because I just couldn't get over on my box. 

Completely off topic, but did you try cutting down the shanks or ripping them out completely?  Blochs have a low vamp and are usually good if your arches aren't terribly strong to push you over the toe, but if you need a little more give then cutting down the shank works.

Sorry, my 2 cents.  Former dancer/teacher.

Every day may not be a good day to die, but every day is a good day to eat pancakes.

These remind me of the story Hans Christian Anderson, The Red Shoes. You would just have to dance all day and night in these. They're so pretty.
