Soft Block Demi-Pointes do not need an appointment however Pointe shoe fitting can take around an hour for new users. During September please book to avoid disappointment as we are very busy during that month. We do ask for a £5 deposit for each booking, which is returnable against the purchase on the day of the fitting. All other months, weeks and days we don’t ask for a deposit, but please still book.
Currently we hold stock of Bloch & Freed Pointe shoes. Pointe shoe prices vary from £45 upwards.
Age for fitting is usually around a minimum age of 11 years old. If below the age of 11 years we usually ask for permission of the Dance school or teacher as they will then be responsible for any damage caused to the feet if not strong enough. Ages 11 and above we are ok to fit without any permission.
It is not natural for anybody to go up on tip toe dancing, so we do insist on the age limit permission being a responsible seller to our clients. We will still fit aged below 11 without permission, but not sell them until authorised to by the teacher or school.
We can hold special visits for bulk appointments either in our store or school out of our retail opening hours, but do usually ask a minimum of 3 fittings for this service.
Once fitted and paid for these shoes & fitting protections are not refundable unless any item is found to be faulty. Then & only then will that item be refunded & not all.
We now offer a mobile Pop Up shop at events and a Mobile Pointe Shoe Fitting service. We can attend any school or event when requested (mainly evenings for shoe fittings). There is no extra charge for this service other than we request a minimum of 3 fittings. Also unlike some companies we do not increase prices on events or mobile services we attend.
