About our Pointe Shoe Fitting Services

Selecting a Pointe Shoe is one of the most important parts of dance. Here at Ballera, we go above and beyond what you would expect. When sizing a shoe there are many factors to consider. If the shoe fits, that doesn’t mean wear it!! You need to consider how your foot moves inside the shoe as well as how it sits. Our staff is very experienced. Whether you are looking for your first pair of pointe shoes or are in need of a replacement,  we here to help you find the right pointe shoe.

The Box

When we talk about the box, we’re referring to the hard enclosure at the front part of the shoe that encases and supports the dancers feet. The front part of the box is flattened, forming a platform and enables the dancer to balance. Satin covers the exterior of the box (as well as the whole pointe shoe) for an aesthetically pleasing look. However, some dancers take the satin that covers the platform off, to make the shoe less slippery.

The Shank

The shank is a rigid piece of material that is placed on the inside of the shoe and supports the arch of the foot.
