How Pointe Shoes Are Made


Recommended Posts

Thank you, it's fascinating and makes me feel much better about the considerable cost of buying pointe shoes for my DD when she was training. Given what is involved in making them, I think they are good value! She used to wear R-class shoes too.

Thank you so much for sharing, @Lucinda! I myself started wearing Maker N back around 1990 when I was a student at the School of American Ballet. I recall going into the School's pointe shoe room on Wednesdays (the one day of the week it was available to us) and being fascinated by all the options - how lucky we were! When I became a professional, I continued to use Maker N until the end of my performing career, of course customizing it to my liking :)
