Canvas vs. Leather Ballet Shoes

A lot of the time, you might not think there’s a difference between a leather or canvas ballet shoe. But that isn’t true! With so many different types of feet, we have two options to cater to those needs. Learn with us which ballet shoe might be the perfect fit for your feet! 


When purchasing leather shoes, they need to be the correct fit since they conform to your feet over time while you wear them. They don’t stretch to your feet unlike the canvas shoes, which can immediately fit your feet and can stretch to the shape of your foot.
