Ballerina Shoe Dioramas

Irregular Choice's 'Glissade' Ballerina Wedges are Elegantly Modern

— July 1, 2015 — Fashion
Taking center stage among all Irregular Choice footwear, the 'Glissade' Ballerina Wedges are made for prima ballerinas and fans of fashion.

These man-made wedges come in the consumer's choice of black, iridescent green or ballerina pink. The innovative wedges are laced with satin ribbons that perfectly complement the platform heel that molds to wearers feet. The platform is 1 1/2 inches while the ballerina-themed wedge heel is 5 1/2 inches. In addition to its tall stature, the ballerina wedge features a glass covered cut-out which acts as a window to the miniature ballerina figure embedded inside of the heel.

Located on the soles is a small key that offers an extra special element to these shoes. Upon turning the key the delicate ballerina figure gracefully pirouettes to 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.'

1. Ballerina-themed Wedges - Opportunity to create more innovative and unique ballerina-themed wedges by incorporating interactive elements like the dancing figure and musical key.
2. Platform Heels - Potential for further development of platform heels with customizable designs and added features such as embedded figures or cut-outs.
