training for pointe shoes – Introducing GrandGear ballet slippers with a more extreme low cut. Recently, I have been making ballet shoes with shorter vamps at customers' requests. I finally decided that it was time to make some with an even more dramatic cut.So here they are: Extreme low-cut leather ballet slippers, new from GrandGear!These very short vamp ballet slippers are handmade, hand pleated & hand finished. They are made of quality leather with matching cotton lining & fine suede inner- soles. The outer full soles are of suede leather and the shoes have elastic drawstrings for fitting adjustment.They are very attractive, rather naughty & cheeky, but a comfortable ballet shoe and great for showing off your feet & toe cleavage. Please contact me if you'd like a different color to those listed.*IMPORTANT – Depending on the current number of orders lodged prior to yours, it may be up to 6 weeks before I can complete and ship your order. However, I'm working as hard as I can to get orders sent as soon as possible,PLEASE NOTE:and I emphasize, that if there is a deadline or special event and you need your ballet slippers sooner, please let me know asap, so I can schedule a 'rush' order for you. There is NO additional charge for this service.
