We’ve done the work!
As dancers ourselves, we have a lot of experience to draw from when helping you find the pointe shoe that works best for your foot. It’s like receiving a face-to-face product review! Our employees can share information from experience that cannot be known simply by looking at or trying on a brand new pointe shoe.
For instance, many of the pointe shoes we have worn ourselves, and consequently we can give you inside information as to how a particular shoe breaks in, how long it lasts for our foot strength, tricks we have used to make it last longer, characteristics of the shoe we have liked or disliked, and various taping, padding and sewing techniques that we have found useful. Besides providing information about the shoe, we also know what looks good aesthetically – we’ve watched a lot of pointe dancing and have worked with a lot of different types of feet!
