Team Talk Odette! #193 - Perfect Pointe Shoes
October 28, 2015
Hello

I've been helping lots of ballet dancers this week on their first time with pointe shoes. It's an exciting and special time, which also should not be rushed!

Most dancer's are desperate to get pointe shoes like the real ballerinas, but it's important to be ready too. Patience is a virtue with something as important as this.

On my page here, I've put lots of tips together on finding the perfect pair of pointe shoes and why you won't always find them straight away -

I've tried out at least 4 different brands and probably hundreds pairs of pointe shoes! I've come to realise they do not always feel the same and you will always get differences between each pair.

Most importantly though, they should fit correctly and be supportive to your feet.

Have a great week!

Best wishes,

Odette
