Team Talk Odette! #185 - Cut the Cost on Pointe
May 31, 2015
Hello

I don't think many people realise how expensive pointe shoes are. They are a real treasure to dance, but of course that beauty doesn't come without a price!

Cheap pointe shoes are hard to find and I know how it feels to try to find pointe shoes on a budget.

You can make your pointe shoes last longer by using alternative pairs if you're doing a lot of pointe work, as this gives the chance for the shoes to breathe.

Don't forget the magic of shellac too, which professional ballet dancers use all the time to harden their shoes to extend the life.

Take a look my page here on more tips on cheap pointe shoes -

Are you a size 5? In Freed or Bloch? Let me know!

Have a great day!

Best wishes,

Odette
