duck walk

One of the tell-tale signs of a ballet dancer is that unmistakable “duck walk”.  Do you know what I’m talking about? That toes-to-the-sides, awkwardly-outturned-hips strut that can only be acquired through years of pliés and ponchés?  Well, now the duck walk (or at least the bunhead behind it) is entering into the world of high fashion.  It’s mode of transportation?  Why, these pointe shoe poser Chloé ballet flats, of course.

The soft leather shoes feature a square tip and a ribbon-mimicking ankle-crossing strap, both very reminiscent of the shoes that keep ballerinas like myself on our toes every day.  With an assortment of ballet themed color options, Chloé’s expert design has finally made it possible for everyone to feel like the sugar plum fairy, tiara and 32 fouettés optional.
