Great shoe!

These are the only pointe shoes that have worked for my daughter. She has pain in her big toe with most pointe shoes, this is only pair she can dance in.

Fast shipping.

Fast shipping when our local store was out of stock.

Araunah Boll (Lititz, US)

These are the only shoes I've ever had that don't hurt my wide feet and tailor's bunion! They do die pretty quickly for me, but I am a pre - professional student dancing five to six days a week. Just a warning, though - these are super hard to sew!

Jennifer Collender (Denver, US)
Huge change

Switched from Suffolk to capizeio, HUGE CHANGE! No reverse arching or twisting which has been a problem with other shoes.

Shirley Tao (Plainview, US)
Great pair of first pointe shoes

I got fitted for these at my local dance store and I love them so much. Also the little gel cushion at the bottom is great.
