How to Prepare for Your Perfect Pointe Shoe Fitting: A Step-by-Step Guide

Getting fitted for pointe shoes is an exciting step in your dance journey! Here's how to ensure a smooth and successful fitting:

1. Dress for Success:

  • Wear comfortable, fitted clothing that allows for movement (think leggings, shorts, or a fitted dance outfit).

  • Convertible tights and a leotard are helpful, but not required. They allow the fitter to easily see your alignment during the fitting process.

  • Trim your toenails neatly and file the edges smooth with an emery board to prevent ingrown nails.

2. Bring the Essentials:

  • If you've worn pointe shoes before: Bring your old shoes, preferred toe padding, and spacers - These significantly impact your fit. It also allows the fitter to see how your previous shoes fit and understand your preferences and any issues you encountered.

  • New to Pointe? No worries! You can still wear your favorite leotard with convertible tights for photos (optional).

3. Communication is Key:

  • Don't hesitate to ask questions or provide feedback throughout the fitting! The fitter is here to guide you and find the perfect fit.

  • If you or your teacher have preferences for specific shoe styles, share this information with the fitter at the start of your fitting. They will do their best to accommodate these preferences while ensuring a proper fit.

  • Remember, open communication is crucial for finding the perfect shoes!

Bonus Tips:

  • While not essential, wearing your favorite dancewear during your first fitting can create fun memories captured in photos.

  • First-time fittings are comprehensive and can take up to an hour. Arrive well-rested and ready to focus on finding the perfect shoe!
