Finding a perfect dance shoe or garment
is very satisfying. But getting the right size is essential
– it affects performance (and appearance!). So, here’s our
guide to ensure you have the best fit possible.
Ballet Shoes fit differently from other shoes – they are designed
so that the toes come to the front of the shoe, so that the
footwork can be easily seen. So, even in a pair of ballet shoes
that are too large, the toes will still come to the front of
the shoe. In contrast to outdoor shoes, growth room can be
seen mostly at the back of the shoe. To check the fit of your
Excess of leather around shoe.
Smooth toes. No excess of leather at tip of shoe. A finger’s
width growth room at back of shoe.
Remember, ballet shoe leather is very soft and will ‘give’
and mould to the shape of the foot, within the first few times
they are worn. There is no ‘left’ or ‘right’ initially, so
always mark the shoe left and right after the first time it
is worn, to ensure the leather moulds perfectly to each foot.
If in doubt, always ask your ballet teacher to check
the fit of your new shoes before wearing them in class.
