What does a ballet dancer wear when she’s not en pointe? We looked to ABC Family’s Bunheads for a tip-off. This week, Vegas showgirl-turned-teacher Michelle (Sutton Foster) gave her arches a rest in a pair of subtle nude Canvas Classics from Toms ($44). It’s not the first time the brand has popped up on the show. Michelle also slipped into a pair of stand-out red Canvas Classics during a previous episode.

So, what’s with all the Toms love? “They’re just very comfortable,” says Bunheads costume designer Brenda Maben. And anyway, she adds, “They’re cute.”

Considering the fact that Foster is a former dancer, we have no doubt that she knows the value of forgiving footwear. Our day job may not require deboulés and développés — or any other very serious sounding ballet moves — but who couldn’t use a pair of cute and comfortable flats? (Oh, let’s not forget, charitable too! According to the brand’s website, for every pair purchased, Toms will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need).
