  4. Hi,I'm in the UK and doing fine art & business at night classes at my local college I would like to request that if you have any dead pointe shoes (England & Scotland only please) You could consider sending them to me rather than throwing them away. My project is to consider the perfect pointe shoe for dancers I would prefer dead pointe shoes as I am ripping the shank out (shank less or de-shanked or also therefore welcome) then I will be reconstructing my own version of a shank before placing it in the shoe. If you would like to know anything else do feel free to ask and I will keep the page updated on every step I am also looking for opinions,my plan and sketches etc all correspond to a cross between a gaynor minden,Bloch and a Freed pointe shoe in that you have to work hard In the shoes as with traditional,they shape perfectly to your arch and they last a long time as well as being as pain free as possible for all dancers Thank you so much for all of your help in advance !!!
  5. Is anyone able to tell me about their dds experiences with these shoes - I'm tempted by their reported longevity (my dds Blochs have lasted 3 weeks ) I have read mixed reports - would love to hear from forumite dancers (or their mums) and teachers - thank you
  6. What do you look for in a perfect poimte shoe??? As I mentioned in my previous post I'm working on creating a point shoe that is a mix between Gaynor minden ,Freed and Bloch! Long lasting like GM's,pain free,the asthetics of Bloch and being a little like freed and having them form to your arch as well as hopefully prevent as many stress fractures from occurring if your prone to these (feel free to read my older posts to understand a little better) anyhow I require 2 things of you in this post. Firstly -your opinions on what your perfect poimte shoe is(feel free to list exact specifications) Secondly-I hope in 18 months they will be ready to trial in the UK(I'm so sorry but I need to exclude Ireland for the first part of the experiment.Don't be sad though as you will be much needed a little later on As such if anybody would like to trial these shoes.Leave a message below with the following- Your street shoe size & if you know if your foot length in either inches or centimetres,your foot length do mentions it and which foot is which length of it is a significant difference eg more than 2mm as this would fall into the custom made section- If you need it custom made- If so the specifications- Foot width - We're going basic N is narrow M is medium W is wide) If you would need extra narrow or extra wide it falls into the custom made section. If you need any special considerations made for your feet eg,calluses,blister prone feet,high instep and I will cater to my best ability to your needs These trials are of no cost to you whatsoever,you can also alternatively send me a private message with this information or ask any other questions , Thank you so much guys ????????????????????

  8. Okay so it turns out that my GM Luxe shoes are too hard for me and my Extra flex ones are too wide and now also too hard even though they are fab and so comfortable.So I need a new pair but alas I do not have the funds and so I am, reluctantly, selling these ones. There are two pairs, both with elastic and ribbon attached however I may remove the ribbon and elastic from one pair for my new ones. It depends how much they go for. GM Luxe, hard shank, HH, DV, 9.5M/4 (these came from GM themselves and have been worn once, they have no suede tip but I have ordered them. This is the size I actually am according to GM fitters) GM Extra flex, HH, DV 9.5W/4. These are really well worn but still plenty of life, they are amazing but the satin is beginning to fray at the bottom but it's not really noticeable. As I said I don't know how much to sell these for. My Extra flex are well worn but my Luxe shoes have only been worn once. I would attach images if I knew how to upload them. The Luxe shoes have that anti-crease satin and bloody hell it is amazing. Thanks in advance.
