Pointe Shoe

Visited Pose A Pointes for our first pointe shoe. Private fitting with dance class, the professional and knowledgeable fitting gave me absolute confidence that my daughter was getting the right shoe for her. Lots of photos to remember the day. Highly recommend


Amazing pointe shoe fitting! A lovely leotard also purchased from the shop! Will be visiting the shop again!! xx

I will not buy this brand again

I've been doing pointes for 2 years and 1/2, I bought Virtisse Violette pointe shoes three weeks ago. I wear these an hour to an hour and a half per week, I find them very uncomfortable to dance with and don't enjoy wearing them. The box is way too rigid and compresses my toes. I'm a size 6 but these shoes run small and I wish I'd bought a 6 and a half as my heels rub against the back of the shoe. The exterior satin material is already starting to wear off. These shoes are poor quality.
