Merlet, French specialist in dance shoes: ballet shoes, pointe shoes, ballroom dance shoes, jazz shoes

The history of the Merlet brand begins in 1974 in Limoges. Shoemakers from father to son, Roger James Merlet, has always rubbed shoulders with beautiful shoes and the love of a job well done.

If he chooses to make dance shoes, it is not by chance, it is after a meeting with Robert Béchade. This famous virtuoso violinist was married to a principal dancer to whom he made pointe shoes. It was from this meeting that was born the passion of Roger James Merlet for making dance shoes.

In 1980, in their workshop in Limoges where slippers are handmade (nearly 50 slippers per day), the sewn returned will revolutionize dance shoes. This technique will bring a better comfort to the dancers, since it makes it possible to amalgamate all the materials which compose the shell by sewing them to the sole.

Always innovating and in a permanent concern to improve the comfort of the dancers, Roger James Merlet and Pierre Lassenne carry out studies with professors at the University Hospital of Limoges. To better understand the discipline of dance and its physical characteristics to make slippers that perfectly match the expectations of dancers.

Over the years, Merlet has become a flagship brand in the field of classical dance with its pointe shoes, half-pointe shoes but also its ballroom dance shoes. Recognized by the greatest dancers, notably Marie-Claude Pietragalla and Nicolas Le Riche, the collaboration of the star dancers led to the design and evolution of the models. More recently, Leonore Baulac, principal dancer at the Paris Opera, was the face of the brand.
