Ballet shoes are soft, leather or canvas shoes for basic practise but pointe shoes have a hardened block on the end and a firm shank (kinda like a sole) so you can stand on top of your toes.
P.s DO NOT get pointe shoes without talking to a professional teacher :)
Ballet shoes are either slippers for practising or pointe shoes. Which, after a girl goes through pre-pointe possibly for one year, they can get pointe shoes then perform pointe! Guys do where ballet slippers but they do not go on pointe

Your normal sort of in class ballet pointe shoes colour is satin pink.
Do by pre-ballet you mean pre-pointe? Because Pre-Pointe is the lesson that is provided to Pointe ballet dancers that are not yet ready to wear or perform in pointe shoes. Commonly the class is the same if not similar to regular pointe class, the only difference is that the dancer wears regular ballet shoes and performs on demi pointe. Basically, pre-pointe is the class that readies your feet and legs for the strength and skill needed to perform in Pointe Shoes.
