As part of our series Pro Tool, we’re looking for that must-have device in your line of work, be it a pair of scissorsnotebook, or microphone

The third item in our series? A pair of shoes.

Professional: Sarah Wroth, Corps de Ballet dancer at the Boston Ballet.

Pro Tool: Freed of London, maker of the L pointe shoes


 

Why it’s a Pro Tool: “The evolution of a dancer’s career is this process of trying to find the exact [shoe] maker that will enable them to dance their absolute best.” 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
