My Pointe Shoes Shouldn’t Fit!
My pointe shoes now are medium profiled, but my feet are high profiled (2 inches exactly)... Mine now fit really well, how is this? If helpful, I have Bloch Aspiration's.
Caitlin, if the shoes are fitting you well, don't sweat it! You've just discovered a very important fact - that fitting pointe shoes isn't an exact science. The maker can make recommendations about what kind of foot a shoe would suit, but you never really know until you put it on.
The foot shape/profile information is only helpful to narrow down a shortlist before you start trying on shoes. Once you get into the fitting process, you sometimes find none of the shoes that "should" fit, do fit. Then you start trying others, and often the result is surprising.
For instance, Grishko's 2007 shoe shouldn't be suitable for Giselle feet, yet I know several dancers with Giselle feet who adore them.
