John Lewis Satin Ballet Shoes, White

Product information

These leather ballet shoes from Carrera are an essential for any budding ballerina. Made with leather uppers and soles with a fabric lining, these shoes are durable and comfortable and are designed with a single lace running around the top edge, to ensure they stay in place. They are packaged in an organza bag to keep your shoes tidy and looking beautiful.

Ballet shoes are designed to fit like a glove to show the arch of the foot when performing. We suggest going up one size for a snug fit, or two sizes for growing room. Any additional room will be at the back or sides of the foot as toes should always be right at the end.

Please note: Only sizes 6-11 Jnr feature the elasticated support strap; 12 Jnr and above are strapless.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely ballet shoes I bought these for my 3 year old to go with her dress when she was a flower girl at a wedding. The satin material makes them shine and look pretty and they fit lovely and snug to the foot. The white ones are also as nice as I bought these too. 11 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ballet shoes I have searched thouroghly and eventually I found them at John Lewis. My daughter find them very comfy 27 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ballet Shoes They look pretty and seem to stay on even though they don't have a band on the front. 30 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tiny! I would agree with other people. Nice ballet shoes but tiny. They are about 2-3 sizes to small. It would be helpful in the size guide if you gave the shoe measurement in cm. I will need to return the shoes. 13 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality ballet shoe but inaccurate sizing Ordered online and arrived promptly as JL orders always do. The quality of the ballet shoe was very good, but about 2 sizes too small so had to return them. This was simple and easy to do. I would buy again, just in store as opposed to online. 21 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by So Small!! I have just received these shoes for my daughter. She is currently in a size 7.5 shoe and I ordered the size 8. I have measured against her outdoor shoes and they are at least 3 sizes too small! Having looked on other retailers for these shoes they recommend you buy one size larger than normal shoe size, however there is no way these shoes are only one size too small, they are ridiculous! I brought these for my parents to give to my daughter for Christmas and had ordered so I can take them over this Sunday well that's not going to happen now! As well as the size issue I also don't feel these shoes are very good quality and fall well below the usual John Lewis standard and the reason I purchased them in the first place....very disappointed! 03 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daughter loves them.. Jl is my first pitstop for ballet gear. Reasonably priced, good quality and can now click and collect at my local Waitrose making it even more attractive! 04 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Little dancing feet !! Bought this Ballet shoes for my two granddaughters.They were delighted but the sizes were very different to their shoe size.Very small..!!!! so we finished with the 3 years old with size 12 and had to buy another pair for the 6 year all. In the end I had to ignore the shoe size and measure their feet lenth to get the proper fitting,but they love them!!!!!! and the price was good.!! 16 January 2014
