Get to know our story
Once upon a time...
There was a girl who dreamt to be a great ballerina one day. Since she was 4, she started working for her dream and, when she was 11, it was the greatly anticipated moment: her first pointe shoes. She soon realised that the ballerinas are the strongest human beings on planet Earth. They are capable of making the most difficult tasks seem easy, of taking their body to the limit, of tolerating pain. Ballet means effort, sacrifice, discipline and suffering. Ballet means emotion, beauty, art and passion. When you look back, you know that it was worth it.
The girl, already a teenager, went to London to fight for her dream, but an injury made her give up on ballet for many years. However, she was unable to turn off the feeling of longing for dancing, so she found a small dance school where she could enjoy and meet up again with that long-time friend.
That’s when she dusted off an old pair of brand-new pointe shoes. Although they were not perfect, they made her feet look pretty. When she had to buy a new pair, she eagerly went to the ballet shop and, when she tried them on, she realised that the pointe shoe model had completely change and it didn’t fit her anymore. Because she was really stubborn, she decided to buy them anyway, but the only thing she got out of this new pair was a bunch of foot blisters. Sadly, she had to use again her old pointe shoe model that she had been wearing before going to London.
At that moment, she realised that if she wanted to find the perfect pointe shoes, she had to design them by herself. So she started working on it.
During her journey, a person with the same ambition and enthusiasm crossed her path and stayed besides her. Musician and with a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering, he had closely lived the world of ballet because of her little sister. Aware of all the issues related to pointe shoes, and eager to improve the quality of life of the ballerinas, he applied all his knowledge to the project with one aim, make the ballerinas feel like they were flying.
