About | F.R. Duval®

In 1982 the brand’s founder, Franck Raoul-Duval, introduced the first of a long line of innovative footwear designs, including the iconic and now world-famous “split-sole ballet slipper.” After many trials and adjustments, the split-sole ballet shoe “Pro1c” was born. This split-sole ballet shoe created quite a stir at the 1994 ParisDance Expo and also London 1996 dance wear expo and received a lot of applause. It was a great step in technical innovation for dancers. As a result of 40 years of continuous product development and meticulous attention to detail, the F.R. Duval® brand now offers a wide range of highly technical ballet and pointe shoes and collaborates with over 200 professional ballet dance companies and theatres worldwide, providing customised stage performance products for professional dancers.
