Could high-tech US ballet shoes threaten the traditional makes? By Ismene Brown of The Telegraph


Quote:
A pink pointe-shoe, the instrument of the illusory magic of the ballerina. It could be a Freed, the world's leading type, hand-made with cardboard and glue in a method that goes back almost a century. Or it could be a modern mutant as controversial as Dolly the sheep, which has caused such a furore in America that many people will not even say the maker's name.

It seems to me it should be possible to come up with a material that offers sufficient support but is not so hard that it is annoyingly noisy. "If they can put a man on the moon...."
