Ballet shoes - for men?











Delicate is not a word usually used to describe men’s footwear. Chunky is more the norm, or rugged. And so when Jonny Johansson, the creative director of Acne, wore what looked like ballet pumps to the opening of his brand’s new London store the other week, all eyes were drawn to his feet. Was he about to plié?
Johansson was actually wearing shoes that were appropriate for the Mayfair location of his Dover Street store. His dress slippers were from the traditional shoemaker Tricker’s and hark back to the dandified heritage of the area, when dress slippers would have been an evening norm, worn whenever there was to be dancing, complete with their comfortable, quilted lining. “I’m not really a dressed-up guy, more of an easy guy,” he says. “I’m drawn to the mix of formal and informal, and the slippers just seemed suitable. Formal wear is very flattering for a man, but I like it when it’s more relaxed, more nonchalant

  4. I think it's cool that he's comfortable enough with himself to wear what he wants, and not what society says is OK. How about we Quit trying to determine what is Right or Wrong in fashion and let each person decide what's right for them? We are so judgemental. Who are we to say what fashion is right or wrong? Did God make us Judges or something?
