Art director Hedi Slimane, as his directional debut for fashion house Saint Lauren, created a video called Dance where the Saint Lauren ballet flats- “Classic Ballerine”, were worn for an actual choreographed dance performance! Ballerina and model Lida Fox, featured in the video, is shot taking these shoes for a spin in the dance studio. Her awe-inspiring performance demonstrates how comfortable yet chic these soft shoes are and makes us want to go out and buy a pair!

This video is the second in the series introducing Saint Laurent’s new fall shoe collection, launching this November. The first video, also called Dance, featured model Gracie Van Gastel with a hula hoop. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=uPFOjvEVsik)
What makes ballet flats our favorite type of shoe is that they look just as sophisticated as heels. Paired with leggings, skinny jeans, or a dress; ballet flats are the go to shoe for any occasion. They can even be carried in your bag for those late nights when you just can’t walk another step in those 6 inch heels. Looks like we just found our perfect pair at Saint Laurent!
