Up Close: Paola Ladies Ballroom Dance Shoes
We have worked closely with a selection of female dancers and our Italian production team on perfecting the technical aspects of Paola to enhance the stability and comfortability of this design.
Paola is designed for performance, using premium 100% satin, leathers and materials. We have implemented a hidden elastic around the top line edge to secure your feet, whilst ensuring the top line of the shoe is elegant and stylish. Paola has a shorter and wider front than Aga.
To achieve maximum comfort and flexibility of Paola the materials used must be of a premium standard. We used Italy’s finest leathers for our insoles and linings for Paola. As we know leather is a skin that allows the foot to release sweat and odour which results in the feet being more comfortable and reduces odour. However I took this a stage further and thought about the comfort aspect of Paola and how to combine this with dancing and flow of movement. I researched at great length the padding and cushioning used to support the feet during many hours of dance. We developed a solution to what our dancers were seeking by using premium quality padding and cushioning at different pressure points on the soles of the feet. However we reduced the thickness of the padding and cushioning at the more flexible points to enable maximum performance.
An essential technical point is the connection between your feet and the dance floor for this reason when designing Paola we used a premium quality soft leather buffalo skin.
For us it is important that each of your dance shoe orders arrives to you in pristine condition, beautifully packaged in the luxury you deserve.
"Having spent years suffering in Ballroom shoes, I'd resigned myself to the idea that I would never feel completely comfortable, despite trying every available brand. However, when I dance in Anita Flavina Paola Ballroom shoe, I knew immediately that these were different. The flexibility of the style, along with the supreme comfort and fit means my long-suffering "dancers' feet" are finally happy! Not only are they comfortable but they make my feet look the best they can. I recommend with confidence Anita Flavina Dance Shoes." Dancer: Gemma Morton
"Why comprise on either stability or style when you can have both? I proundly wear my Paola style daily for teaching and shows and can not speak more highly of the comfort and elegance they give me. Anita Flavina Dance Shoes are such a beautiful collection." Dancer: Honor Roche
