Our vision is to be known worldwide as a brand that offers innovative products, that inspire the freedom of movement, while adapting to the aesthetic and technical desires of the dancers.
The search of modern and innovative ballet shoes arises as a personal necessity of Narcís Subatella, dancer since he was 8 years old, of achieving comfortable dance shoes that could adapt to any type of foot. With this goal in mind, he decided to listen to the needs of different dancers and in conjunction with his own developed a new generation of ballet shoes made to satisfy the dancers desires and needs.
Finally, after several years of investigation looking for the best fabrics and manufacturing techniques, the company created two models of ballet shoes, N6 and N7, which offered the most demanded benefits by the dancers; they are made with breathable material, they adapt to the feet with almost no wrinkles, they are resistant and they will make softer the reception too.
Narcis Dance Free was founded with the aim of sharing and providing innovative and high quality ballet shoes, taking into account the dancers’ experiences and the research and development done by the founder Narcís.
It has been necessary to make a long and meticulous research of different textile manufacturing methods and materials in order to create Narcis Dance Free ballet shoes. Each pair of shoes entails multiple delicate processes that require different techniques, materials and machinery; which means that they can only be created by hand by experienced and versatile craftsmen.
Thanks to our own and other dancers' experiences, we have designed ballet shoes in which every component is thought to satisfy one or more needs and wishes of the dancer.
Our ballet shoes, if used correctly, last on average up to 3 months of professional work.
