The Best Fit
Precise fitting is required in pointe shoes.
Dancers may arrange a fitting with Master Fitter Heather McKinney, or another
MK Dancewear certified fitter, to provide superlative pointe shoe fittings
to students, pre-professionals and professionals.
Heather has over 30 years of industry experience.
Our fittings have always been free of charge.
Pointe shoes are a specialized tool in dance. Properly fitting pointe shoes can enhance your performance with the confidence that your shoes will be there for you and working WITH you while you perform. In contrast, if you’ve been incorrectly fit into improperly fitting pointe shoes, not only is your performance affected, but your health could be as well. It’s extremely important to be properly fitted into the right pointe shoes! Bruised toenails, pain, bunions exacerbated, excessive blisters, broken toes, even broken ankles can occur when you’ve been improperly fit into the wrong pointe shoes!
The damage that an incorrect fitting can cause, not only to the foot itself, but your technique, is not worth the risk! Make sure your fitter has the knowledge and experience required to fit pointe shoes!
Expert pointe shoe fittings are available by appointment.
Fittings are free of charge.
