Contemporary footwear brand Rosbalet was born from the idea that to last, modernity must find its footing in a tradition free of nostalgia -- to be grounded, yet free-spirited.
Entrepreneur Julia Nikulina’s philosophy of innovation as a combination of beauty and technicity found an echo in the work of art director Sergey Kozyrev, who had started designing shoes for private clients. Together, they set Rosbalet on the path to wider recognition.
First and foremost, Rosbalet is a declaration of love to movement and to life as perpetual motion. The name itself, a contraction of “Ros” for Rossiya, or Russia and “ballet”, for the performed art, merges the all consuming passion of a whole culture with an art whose whole purpose is to seem to never touch the ground, where gliding becomes effortless.
Strongly influenced by the arts and architecture, the brand’s design philosophy relies on the best of traditional craftsmanship while resolutely looking forward to better serve the needs of a demanding clientele. Comfort is another essential part of the brand’s identity. In an age where balance is essential, women no longer compromise between style and substance. Rosbalet accompanies women from sunrise to sunset in heels that transforms every step in their lives into a joyful dance. As Marilyn Monroe once said, "give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."
As a reinforcement of Rosbalet’s design principles, bold technical advances are incorporated in the design: gel insole for expert support and long lasting wear meet surreal gold curve construction heel in a symbol of movement, of freedom as well as a statement to the world.
