These shoes can't do your feet any good?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've seen alot of these 'ballet heels' on shoe sites recently. But the idea is taken from pointe shoes from classical ballet...which you need years of training to be able to wear. And theres these with just a heel for support...i know they're more for show than walking in but don't you think someone could do their feet some serious damage, especially if they have weak ankles? The smaller ones are the most worrying as there isn't any ankle support (which is what the ribbons are for in pointe shoes or else you can break your ankles). You'd also need some form of padding...it's just worrying that people without much knowledge of what these shoes are based on could wear them and do some damage.

What do you think? Would it be safe to wear them? (i'm not wanting any btw! i have REAL ballet shoes :p)

    Definately not safe to wear them! If we were meant to walk around on our tip toes all day we wouldn't have heels. You would really be risking your legs if you wore them, like you say ballet dancers go through years of training, and even then they wont be working like that for long periods of time.

    I can see someone sue-ing the manufacturers when they break an ankle. :rolleyes:

    Seriously!!! WTF, god I would break my neck if I ever tried to wear those, most of my heels are 2.5 inches or less.

    Don't look safe, break your neck if you wear them.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    was it kate winslet that wore them for some photo shoot? i cant see people wearing them out in the street anyway.. could you actually walk in them?!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    They look like "ballet" toes from the outside but I don't see how a non-ballet trained person could wear them unless the outside appearance is somehow a deception.

    They're not made for people to walk down the street in!!! They're made for fetishists to lust over and have a good ol' shag in.

    Why don't people get that they're not shoes? They're sex toys :p

    my thoughts exactly!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think theyre kinda sexy, although walking around in them would remove any sexiness for me when I hobbled like a man in drag, then went arse over tit into the kerb.
