The soft ones are simply ballet shoes. The stiffer ones the older girls and women use are pointe shoes. Ballet flats are shoes meant to be worn outdoors, with hard, flat soles and uppers in the style of ballet shoes.

Modell s Sporting Goods http://www.modells.com/category/footwear/kids .do  calls them basketball shoes. We used to call them high tops. That name is still in use, but the quality has gotten much fancier. Formerly canvas like tennis shoes, now see http://www.jordan-sneakers.org/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=184 for Nike Air Jordan high tops.

I ve heard ballet slippers more than ballet shoes. The pointe shoes are also called toe shoes.

Bruce, I always heard the same, but this link (and many others) uses "shoes" for both:
 
 
 
Also, I say basketball shoes (not boots)
 
Cheers,
