two photos of a Danish dancer of the 1950s and '60s wearing the
19th century classical ballet shoe for men.
Mette Mollerup (later
Balanchine's Terpsichore) and Henning Kronstam, about 1953, in
the Zouave Galop of Emilie Wahlbom's Dream Pictures. You
can really see the point of the extended foot.
Another view of the shoe
