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 – Evaluation of toes length

You need to evaluate the toes length because in most cases:

  • Small toes = low vamp
  • Flessibilità Arco
  • Medium toes = you can evaluate the most suitable vamp
  • Big toes = high vamp

4 Step – Flexibility of instep

Firm and not flexible instep requires a low vamp because high vamp makes hard rising on pointe. A pretty flexible arch allows to wear different high vamp according to other feet features. A very flexible instep needs a high vamp on order to avoid the foot to slide inside the pointe shoes.
