Background

French ballet shoe label Repetto was founded in 1947 by Rose Repetto, mother of choreographer Roland Petit. Repetto made ballet shoes for the Opéra National de Paris before French entrepreneur Jean-Marc Gaucher resurrected the brand into a chic luxury mainstream label.

Known for

Repetto has three incredibly iconic shoes: The Zizi Oxford lace-up shoes, the Cendrillon Ballerinas, designed in 1956 for Brigitte Bardot as an everyday city ballerina, and the Maestro Loafers. All Repetto shoes are made from soft, subtle leather, usually used for gloves, to give you that ultra-comfortable second-skin feel.

Initiatives

All Repetto shoes are made in France. Its Dordogne factory celebrated its one-millionth pair in 2005. Repetto's foundation Danse pour la Vie, established in 2007, provides support to dance schools worldwide to help educate and rehabilitate children through dance.
