Ballets that are danced well or better fit for more soft/dead pointe shoes?

I wear hard shoes but they die incredibly fast because of my rather flexible and strong feet. I have become quite used to dancing in (not dangerously dead) more soft shoes, and my feet have adjusted somewhat as well where they do not "break" or snap forward or to the side. I also feel as though my feet are a somewhat good quality or asset for me... So my question, in other words, is: What variation (or ballet) is best fit for softer pointe shoes (but still dancing en pointe, not demi)?
