Use the size conversion chart as a general guideline for approximate pointe shoe size. Final size selection will be made during a careful fitting. Toe pads and spacers, model choice, width, and a dancer's personal preference will affect size selection.
Sizes in 29 - 32 are available in a single model for each collection. These shoes reflect the features of the collection, but due to the smaller sizes they are available in one toe platform and medium vamp only.
Try a narrower width in a larger size or a higher vamp in a larger size.
Starting with the approximate size choice from the chart, place the dancer in second position and have her plié. In plié she should feel the toe platform with her longest toe, without feeling that the longest toe is jammed tightly against the platform.
Next, have the dancer place one foot in a pointe position on the floor, without putting her body weight onto pointe. If the shoe is the right length, you will be able to pinch a small amount of fabric at the back of the heel. You should not be able to insert a finger between the dancer's heel and the shoe. If there is no "pinch" at the back of the heel, the shoe may be too short.
