Wear comfortable clothing as you will be asked to plié and rise during your fitting. It is also important for your fitter to see your bare feet at the start of your fitting, so either wear convertible tights or use the ballet socks provided in store.

Medical fraternities advise that a young student should not commence pointe work before the age of eleven or twelve as the cartilage and bones of the feet are still soft. The student would normally have been studying ballet for about three to four years prior to going ‘en pointe’. Serious damage could occur if pointe work is commenced at too early an age before the correct development of all the muscles, however it is the teacher who would advise on this.

Once your ballet teacher says you are ready to go onto pointe, you will need to make an appointment for a Pointe Shoe Fitting which will take between 30 – 40 mins    Your teacher may also have a preference for toe protection to be worn inside your pointe shoes,  and there will be variety of suitable products on hand during your fitting.

It is important for the student to be able to communicate with their pointe fitter as this conversation and any feedback between them is essential in achieving the best fit possible. It is beneficial for all concerned should the teacher be able to attend this special fitting of the student’s first pair of pointe shoes otherwise your teacher will need to approve them.  Once she has done this you can then proceed to sewing on the ribbons and/or elastics and other accessories such as suede toe caps if required.


  • Ribbon bundles are sold in one long 3 metre length so the ribbon needs to be cut in half and then in half again so there are four pieces, one for each side of the shoe. 

  • Take one piece of ribbon and at one end fold one centimetre over once and then fold it over two centimetres again.

  • To attach the ribbons at the correct angle, fold the back of the shoe forward and down, then mark each side of the shoe on the cotton lining in the angle made.

  • Place the folded end of the ribbon at the marked position and sew as shown in the drawing onto the side of the shoe through the cotton lining but not through the satin. The ribbons may be angled forward if required to hold the shoe on more securely.
