We Offer Pointe Shoe Fittings By Appointment.
Please call us on 01803 317588 to book as we like to allow plenty of time with each dancer and we don’t want you to have a wasted journey if one of our pointe fitters isn’t available.
What To Wear At A Pointe Shoe Fitting
It is really helpful for our fitters if you wear ballet tights to your fitting. Convertible tights are best as we can have a good look at your feet. Leggings or loose fitting trousers over your tights is also a good idea so that you can move around freely.
What to bring with you
If you are being fitted for your first pair of pointe shoes you do not need to bring anything with you. If you have had pointe shoes before it is often helpful for us to be able to look at your previous pair as it helps us to understand how they have worn etc. If you have toe pads that you wear inside your pointe shoes, please bring those along with you as this will alter the fit of the shoe slightly.
First Pointe Shoes
Having your first pair of pointe shoes is often a very exciting time for young dancers. It can also be a bit daunting for the parents if they have not had any experience of this before. Please don’t worry as we will be able to offer you advice on how to sew the ribbons on and how to look after the pointe shoes during the fitting!
