Pointe Shoe Fitting
We carry a large variety of models from the most popular pointe shoe brands,
Bloch, Capezio, Freed, Gamba, Gaynor Minden, Grishko, Mirella, Russian Pointe, Sansha, So Danca, Suffolk, Wear Moi, and more!
Sign up for our Pointe Shoe Club for additional discounts.
Appointments for individual pointe shoe fittings are not necessary at this time; we just ask that you allow up to one hour for the fitting- so please arrive at least one hour before store closing.
For group fittings of 3 or more dancers, please call ahead!
Much of the fitting time is spent trying on a variety of different styles, fine tuning length, width and shank strength to achieve the best personal fit.

Pointe Shoe Fitting Tips:
We recommend that you come in comfortable clothing and with convertible tights if possible. If you forget, we have try-on footies in store.
Remember to trim your toenails a couple of days before your fitting, to avoid sensitive toes.
If you are already on pointe, bring your current pair, as well as any toe pads and accessories.
We also offer a full pointe shoe fitting without purchase, for a fee of $25. This fee can be credited towards your next pointe shoe purchase.
*Please ensure your teacher approves your new pointe shoes before sewing on ribbons and elastics. If your teacher is not satisfied with the fit, you may bring back the shoes within 15 days to be refitted- as long as you have your receipt and the shoes are unaltered, unsewn and unworn.*
