This study investigated the impact of pointe shoes wearing on ballerinas' foot shapes and comfort. The first and fifth toe angles, plantarflexion angle in demi-pointe position as well as plantar contact pressure (PCP) and center of force (COF) excursions were analyzed in four conditions (standing/walking in running shoes/high heels) through a series of human performance tests with 15 ballerinas and 15 amateur dancers (control group). Interviews were conducted and comfort perceptions were analyzed. The result found the plantarflexion angle in demi-pointe position significantly different between the two groups, and depended on ballerinas' pointe experience. Significant region*group interaction and shoe*group interaction were found in log peak PCP in standing and walking, respectively. A significant shoe*group interaction was found in normalized A-P excursion in walking. The comfort perception in pointe shoes was depended on pointe experience. Ballerinas may have better balance in high heels, however, they could be insensitive to foot pain.
