Each model is available in three vamps. The preferred vamp may be chosen without affecting any other feature or measurement of the shoe. The precise length of a short, medium, or long vamp increases or decreases proportionally with shoe size. A correctly chosen vamp provides support without restricting movement. If the vamp is too low, the toes show, which is unattractive and uncomfortable, and compromises support. If the vamp is too high, it cuts into the foot, often painfully, and movement is restricted especially during roll-through.
Whenever possible, examine the dancer's old pair of pointe shoes. When shoes have been properly selected in all specifications to match the dancer's foot shape and technical needs, the platform will be worn evenly.
