Women should start 2 - 2.5 sizes smaller than their regular street shoe size. Pointe shoes should be an exact fit to ensure the shoes are properly supportive of your foot and ankle. Your toes should feel flat and touching the end the of shoes when in a plie at the barre. Enpointe, your foot should feel supported in the box of the shoe with limited sliding. The wings of the shoe should cover and support the toe joints, and the shank should not twist on the foot. The shoe will mold to your foot with wear.
Women should go an additional half size smaller and consider one size narrower if they intend wear the pointe shoes without padding.
Product sizing is to be used as a guide as the actual fit may vary. If you have any concerns about product sizing please contact us prior to ordering.
