Team Talk Odette! #149 - The Perfect Pointe Shoe
March 03, 2014
Hello

I've always found you can never get enough tips and advice on how to manage your pointe shoes.

I still find it fascinating how other ballet dancer's break in their shoes and get them ready for performance.

Do you have any special methods or burning questions you wish to find out about pointe shoes?

Let me take you to this page on why you have to search for the perfect pointe shoe and why ballerinas have their shoes especially handmade for them -

For brand new pointe shoes, you can wear them around the house underneath a cosy pair of slippers or socks to get them softer to shape to your feet.

Best wishes,

Odette
