The question is: Are you wearing the right pointe shoes?

First you must define the box. Let’s have a look to below attached picture: which one is your feet? According to your feet type you can get more accurate idea of the most suitable pointe shoe model for you.

Step 1 – Foot type

Each ballet pointe shoes producers makes pointe shoes with one of the three most important boxes:


Step 2 – Define Vamp height

You need to consider the following features in order to define the vamp height:

  • Toes length
  • Arch flexibility
  • Compressibility
  • Foot width

Step 3 - Assess the length of your toes

Assess the length of the toes, in most cases:

  • Small toes = short template
  • Medium toes = you assess which one fits best
  • Large toes = high template

Step 4 - Assess instep flexibility

A stiff, inflexible instep needs a lower template: one that is too high can make it difficult to lift at the toe. A moderately flexible arch allows for different height templates, depending on other aspects of the foot.

A very flexible instep should be supported with a longer template so that the foot does not move inside the shoe.
