    Fit: True to size

    Absolutely amazing shoe! I've been wearing these for nearly 2 years now and I can say there is no shoe that can compare. I always had trouble with my boxes dying super fast, but these have very hard boxes, so even after my shanks were absolutely shot, I still could wear them for an additional week or two. I only had to get one pair for show weekend and they lasted through the last one! They are SO worth the money!

    Fit: True to size

    My daughter has fairly small, narrow feet. This is her second pair of pointe shoes and her teachers think they are better for her compared to the Capezios we tried initially. So far they seem more durable and fit her feet better. She has an extremely narrow heel and egyptian toes and decently arched feet. We get the XN width for now and they're perfect. We did soften the wings with alcohol. Suffolks are all but impossible to find where we live, however, so we are very grateful that DDS stocks them.

    Great at the beginning but...

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I love these shoes! They break in easily(I get hard shank) and look nice on my feet. My only complaint is that parts of the shoe break that shouldn't. The satin on one of my shoes tore(this only happened once or twice and you can still dance in them) and the wings have broken on a couple pairs making it hard to continue using them after that happens but with a little jet glue this is easily fixed.

    Decent shoes

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I recently switched into the Solos after being in Spotlights for almost a year, and it is definitely a step in the right direction. The box is wide and nicely shaped, and getting up and over the shoe is fairly easy. I order the hard shank and the shoe lasts about a month for me (dancing en pointe 7+ hours a week). However, when the shoes die, it becomes extremely painful.

    AMAZING!

    I've been on pointe for maybe six months, and I have made more progress in six months than most people at my studio do. These are my first and only pointe shoes I've ever had. When I got fitted for the first time I tried on only a few, such as a few Freeds, and Russians, and then the fitter came up with Suffolks. They fit on my foot like Cinderella and her shoe, these are most definitely made for very strong feet and good arches. The fitter said these are equivalent to Freeds because of the strong foot needed to be in the shoe. SOOOO I love these shoes so much! I hope that I can keep them into the years when I go to a professional dance school!

    Amazing shoes- but they die hard

    by: EmilyP - 01/19/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I have used these shoes for about a year now, and have gone through a few different pairs. They fit my feet really well, and feel great. They're supper supportive and have a very hard box, which is good for me but not for everyone. They only thing that really bugs me about these shoes is they die rather suddenly, and can get very painful when they die. But all in all- a great shoe!

    Make my arches look great

    by: Rinoa - 08/06/2011 - Canada,

    Since I have narrow tapered feet, the narrowest size fits me only if I use insoles and some padding. The pale peach pink color is also lovely, it matches Bloch elastorib and compliments Capezio ballet pink transition tights. The platform is slightly larger than I'm used to, but I adjusted just fine. I wish they weren't so expensive.

    Good first pair!

    by: Jenna - 06/22/2011 - Vancouver, Bc,

    This is my first pair of pointe shoes, and so far I'm pretty impressed. I booked a fitting and tried several models by Bloch before trying these, and they were definitely the best fit. I have wide feet, street size 8, and the 4.5XXX fits very well. The box is very supportive and one of the more comfortable ones I tried on. I tried them on with Ouch Pouch pads, which I also bought, and they work well. I also bought "Pointe Comfort" gel toe pads, which I prefer to the ouch pouches, but they add a tad too much length to my foot, making it hard to get the heels on. My only real complaint so far would be that the sole is a little too short in the heel. If it were abut a quarter inch shorter or longer it would be fine, but it ends exactly where I put my weight on me heels, so flat work is not as comfortable as I'd like.

    They're great! They fit me really well!

    by: Gigi - 06/10/2011 - Kansas,

    I love my Suffolk Solo shoes. They really fit my foot well. I have tried another pair before this pair, and these are better. I like the way they look on stage, they work in class, and the way they fit my arches.

    Love these shoes.

    by: Alicia - 11/01/2010 - Ct,

    I've been wearing these shoes for over a year now and love them! I've tried all kinds of other shoes and have finally found "my" shoe. They last fairly long too and give a nice arch. They have a nice flat platform for balancing but don't have a bulky look.

    AMAZING

    by: Bailey - 08/16/2010 - California,

    These were my 4th pair of pointe shoes and they were by far my favorite! They are very easy to get all the way up on the box and you just glide on the floor. I usually have a problem with my feet hurting really bad after pointe, but with these I never had that. I absolutely love them!

    long time user!

    by: Anonymous - 08/15/2010

    I've used Suffolk pointe Solos for 4 years now. They're the best shoes I've ever had! They last me around 4 months, and I dance around 6 hours per week on pointe. The suggested fitting is spot on, so order 2.5 sizes smaller. I'm very glad that Discount Dance is finally offering them so I can purchase them through here!
