Ja Sm Posted October 30, 2012 Share Posted October 30, 2012 (edited) I am sure some of you experienced ballet co-ers can explain this to me. My dd wears capezio shoes, loves them and they were certainly the best fit at the time. I also understand that they are a good first shoe as they are supportive. Now that she is doing more pointe work, she is finding it more painful. We are trying extra padding etc to see if this helps. She wears ouch pouches (spelling?) as well as wool padding, gel toe tips. I understand from her teacher that the capezio shoe has quite a thin end ( not a very technical word, sorry!) . Some brands apparently have more cushioning. I seem to remember reading on this site in the past that this " thinness" is a good thing as it helps the student feel the floor more easily. So how does she now balance feeling the floor sufficiently with feeling comfortable. Any words of wisdom and explanations would be really appreciated.
