Legseleven Posted February 17, 2013 Share Posted February 17, 2013 My DD has very arched, narrow, compressible feet, with long toes, the first three of which are almost the same length. I wondered whether anyone could recommend pointe shoes that have worked for those with similar feet? She has had Bloch Sonatas previously, which worked well for her and didn't die too soon, so could go back to those. Her current pair are Bloch Axis and lasted two lessons! even though we deliberately didn't use the hairdryer to soften the shanks on the recommendation of her fitter and her teachers. She tried Grishko Vaganovas and Freed Classic Pros yesterday, both of which she liked and were recommended by the fitter - a different fitter, as we weren't able to go to our usual shop - we bought the Freeds and will obviously have these approved by her teachers. However, having now researched it seems to me that the Grishko Vaganovas would have been the better choice for her type of feet. We can of course return the Freeds if her teachers don't approve them, so all is not lost...I just wondered whether any of the knowledgeable folk on this forum were able to advise?
