Demi Pointe shoes

demi pointes, soft blocks, exam shoes.

Demi pointes are the transition shoe between soft ballet shoes and pointe shoes. They are harder than ballet shoes and are designed to prepare your feet and legs for pointe work. By wearing demi pointes (or soft pointes) your feet will become accustomed to working in a more confined space, on an uneven sole and against a stronger sole. You will start to develop the muscles needed for pointe work and learn about stability and balance in a different type of shoe. We highly recommend soft pointes to our younger customers who are aspiring to go up en pointe and want to prepare themselves a year or so in advance. If you think you would benefit from wearing this shoe, ask your teacher, and if they agree, come in and we can fit you. It is worth making an appointment for a fitting so you don't have to wait... please call us on 01494 727211 of you would like to book in or just ask us more about this brilliant shoe.
