Ballet dancers always want to dance to their best and nothing will let them get in their way... not even their ballet pointe shoes.

It often takes a ballerina years to find the right pair of pointe shoes. They can be adjusting the width, length, strength and brand until they find the absolute perfect pair.

This is because the shoes can make a huge difference to your dancing, so you must make sure they fit exactly to both your foot strength and shape.

You could be one step closer to finding your perfect shoes.

Best wishes,
