'Pointe shoes', also referred to as toe shoes, are a special type of shoe used by ballet dancers. They developed from the desire to appear weightless onstage and have evolved to allow extended periods of movement on the tips of the toes (en pointe). Pointe shoes are normally worn only by female dancers, though male dancers may wear them for certain roles.
