Whether you are just starting out or you are an established professional, getting your dance footwear right is central to ensuring that you practise and perform at your best. Dance Depot is proud to offer its own line of dance shoes but we also offer a wide selection of other well-known dance footwear brands. For pointe shoes we offer the best selling styles from Capezio and Bloch as well as value styles from Sansha.
Having the right pointe shoes is about far more than simply looking the part. This is especially important for pointe work; correctly chosen pointe shoes are crucial for providing comfort, support and the ability to execute complex steps with great precision.
You will need different types of pointe shoes at different stages as you progress. Beginners and those preparing for moving on to ‘en pointe’ work will usually require the demi-pointe shoe. More experienced dancers requiring ballet pointe shoes will find different styles of toe boxes, shanks and vamps so you need to understand your specific requirements. Your ballet instructor should be able to advise you as to the products best suited to your physique and your current focus.
Pointe shoe sizing differs significantly from conventional shoe sizing so do make sure you take note of the sizing guide with each product detail.
Ribbons and toe pads are often sold separately so do ensure you have everything you need when you choose your shoe.
