We recommend that you are fitted professionally before purchasing your first pair of pointe shoes. Contact our London store for more information on 020 7240 0432
To maximise the life span of your pointe shoes after wear remove your toe pads and put them somewhere to air and dry out. Do not store in polythene bags. It also helps to fill the block area of the shoe with thin paper. This encourages the block to maintain its original shape. The outside tip (platform) of the shoes should be protected by using suede toe caps or darning. This reduces the wear and improves the grip.
