It’s a momentous occasion when a dancer rises up on her toes, especially when it is experienced for the first time. At Step’N Out we understand the importance of this experience and want to make it a special moment for each dancer.
Pointe Shoe Fittings
At Step’N Out we have highly qualified staff. Each are specially trained in fitting pointe shoes. An improper fitting pointe shoe can be dangerous for the dancer and can easily result in injury. This is why we are committed to ensuring that each dancer receives a proper fitting with one of our Pointe Shoe Technicians.
Set Up an Appointment
We ask that you set up an appointment to ensure a technician is ready to do your fitting when you arrive. Remember, a fitting can take up to 45 minutes. We will try several pairs of pointe shoes to ensure the best fit! If you have danced before and require a new pair of shoes, please bring your old shoes in for us to see. This will help us in determining the next best shoe for you. Don’t forget to trim your toenails and bring any accessories (gel pads, spacers) you wear in your shoes. Without them, it will dramatically alter the fit of your shoe. These considerations are greatly appreciated by our pointe shoe technicians and will aid in optimizing your pointe shoe fitting experience.
