The Lanvin Ballerina Slipper Stars In Its Own Ballet (Of Course)

Okay, we'll admit it: Your ballet flats may not be the most exciting item in all your closet. But, regardless, we often find that it's one of the most reliable and most worn (because, no, the everyday, four-inch heel is not in our style lexicon just yet). However, in honoring one of the most famous pairs of slippers — the Lanvin ballet slipper — things do get a bit more exciting.
Complete with that quintessential Alber Elbaz charm, this video features the famous flats doing a ballet all their own. Call it the "Satin Shuffle" or the "Lanvin Limbo" — either way, we're able to appreciate the timeless two steppers in this cheery, colorful display, as they dance across the screen and fight for our attention. Didn't know your old faithful ballet shoes had it in 'em? Watch ahead for the proof.
