Collection: Pointe Shoes

We have over 30 years experience in fitting Pointe Shoes and Demi Pointes and pride ourselves on taking the time, care and effort required to attain the correct fit for the individual dancer.

It’s such an exciting time for students and parents when dancers are told that they are ready to start pointe work. It may also feel overwhelming, with the multitude of pointe shoe styles available, the crucial accessories, the techniques for sewing and breaking in, and mostly where to begin!

There are many elements to observe when having your first pointe shoe fitted. Every single pointe shoe is distinct. Uniquely crafted and individually made, the same size and style will feel differently from one dancer to the next. 

It is highly recommended that you get a professional pointe shoe fitting as each dancers feet are not the same and may require different features from the shoe. Each fitting takes approximately half an hour and it's important to wear something comfortable so that you can move freely. It is also really helpful for us if you wear ballet tights to your fitting. Convertible tights are best as we can have a good look at your feet.

In a correctly fitting shoe, the toe box sits smoothly and snugly against the toes. All five toes lie flat against the insole, and the big toe reaches the end of the box comfortably when the dancer does a plié. The feet do not move within the shoe. The heel is snug when the dancer stands on flat; on pointe, there is a little room to pinch the heel fabric. On pointe, the dancer’s weight is evenly distributed on the toes, she is balanced on the centre of the platform, and the feet do not sink into the toe box.

A loose shoe increases the chance of injury and the dancer will not have the correct control of movement. The snug nature of the fit may feel unusual at first but we will check many aspects of the shoes and ask lots of questions to determine if they are too tight or just snug. 

With over 30 years of experience of fitting pointe shoes, we aim to offer all the help and guidance to ensure your experience on pointe is enjoyable and safe and also convenient for you!
