Are there different ballet shoes for men, women, boys and girls?
Girls and boys (and men and women) should choose their demi-pointe shoes based on their level. In general, beginners start wearing full-sole demi-pointe shoes, before switching to split-sole demi-pointes and finally pointe shoes. The main difference is the colour and materials. We offer split-sole demi-pointes in black, salmon, and white.
Split or full soles?
Full soles are recommended for ballet beginners of any age. They offer good support to the foot. However, teachers are increasingly suggesting wearing split soles from the start. Split soles are more flexible at the arch of the foot and provide an attractive line through the foot. Often recommended for intermediate or advanced students who already have good technical mastery.It's best to talk to your dance teacher.
Should you choose leather or fabric?
The choice of leather or fabric usually depends on your teacher. However, it's also a matter of comfort and product lifespan. The stretch canvas demi-pointe ballet shoes, which are more flexible (the fabric was tested with the top-of-the-range horse riding bottoms), are machine washable at 30°C. The leather demi-pointes are more durable to last longer.
Choosing the right size
When you choose your shoes, the important thing is for your toes to be supported but not squashed! Your toes should be comfortable in the slipper and not feel stiff. However, you should feel supported. For canvas slippers, we recommend choosing your normal shoe size. For leather slippers, we recommend going one size down if you have narrow feet. Leather shoes do tend to stretch over time.
Are there movements you should do to check your size?
Yes, of course! When trying them on, stand up and raise up and down on the demi-pointes several times. You can also move from demi-pointe to pointe. You will feel if your toes are stiff or comfortable in the slipper. Your feet should not move around in the slipper but be well supported.
That little extra for carrying your shoes?
We added a small charming pocket that can hold all your accessories when travelling to and from dance classes. On one side, there is a compartment for storing your chignon kit, plasters, rosin, and other items. And a separate zippered compartment underneath for holding your shoes.

    Schönes Material

    Der Schuh bietet durch die geteilte Sohle und das stretchmaterial eine hohe Flexibilität, durch die Passform werden die Zehen gut gestützt. Auch rein optisch sagt mir der Schuh zu und ist von der Idee nicht schlechter als ein höherpreisiges Modell, dass ich besitze. Allerdings sind an vielen Stellen an den Sohlen Klebereste, was sich ein bisschen unschön anfühlt. Wegen dieser schlechten Verarbeitung, einen Stern weniger.

    Très bon chausson

    Je viens d'acheter des chaussons en taille 41. J'ai été très agréablement surprise : un chausson très confortable, sensation pied nu avec un bon équilibre glisse/adhérence au sol. De plus, contrairement à un avis d'un professeur présent sur le site qui a dû se tromper de modèle car elle fait référence à l'absence de lien de serrage pourtant bien présent, le chausson tient très bien au pied. Et pour couronner le tout je trouve qu'ils sont plutôt esthétiques et très respirants.
    Donc je ne regrette pas de l'avoir essayé en magasin et je le recommande.
