Canvas ballet shoes are less expensive than leather ballet shoes. They also do not stick to the floor as much as leather. It is helpful to know the type of floor you will be dancing on before you buy shoes. Because canvas shoes are more slick they tend to perform better on a vinyl floor that has more grab. Men tend to prefer them for this reason. Men are heavier and the heavier you are the more your shoes will grab the floor. Leather shoes may stick too much and make it difficult for the dancer to turn and pivot. Another plus for canvas shoes is unlike leather shoes they can be washed, which is a great asset. They can also be dyed to match costumes.
