Choosing Your Pointe Shoe Brand
So! You've been promoted to pointe and have to choose a shoe. You walk into the store and are faced with several hundred choices. That huge wall covered in pointe boxes can be overwhelming at first, but don't fret! Most dancewear stores have a trained fitter that can help you narrow down which brand and style will be the best for you.
Metronome carries the top names in pointe shoes, including, but not limited to Russian Pointe, Bloch, Suffolk, Gaynor Minden, and Grishko. Each one has a little something different to offer, but ultimately, the fit is the most important factor. Don't hesitate to ask your fitter for more information on what each brand offers!
