    Durability:

    Before switching to these, I was stuck in a Block European Balance in a hard shank reinforced with jet glue. I was having problems finding a shoe with enough support and when I tried these on in my local dance supply store, these were excellent. I have an incredibly wide and fat foot and I wear a size 6 in street shoes. In this, I'm wearing a 3.5 EE in a hard shank, I also had an extra sock sole added to both shoes. I've had these for about two weeks and with being on them 2 hours a day for 5 days a week, and I'm about to replace this pair. I love these shoes so far and plan on purchasing a few of them for this semester of school. The high wing is excellent, especially as someone who struggle to find shoes that will support their whole foot. The shank is hard at first, but after working in them at the barre for about an hour, it was pliable enough to really work the foot, and with a little help from water on the vamp, the three-quarter pointe softened right up. The outer sole isn't too thick so there isn't too much wobbling going on. I have a few complaints though. The first would be the fact that the inner sole moves around in the shoes as you sweat. It started rolling and the glue was coming up after the first class. I reglued it my self, but it's still very lumpy. The second would be the platform. It felt very curved and I often found myself in a weird place of either rolling over the box or not being able to get over the box completely. I darned the tips to correct this, which I won't mind doing for the nex pair. I would also be a little wary of your sizing and depending on the kind of toepads you use, if it's minimal go a half size down. I use thin ouch-pouch like toepands and I found myself sinking in the shoes or my heel all the way back and the toe of the shoe not laying flat. I added extra sock soles to correct this, but I will be sizing down next time. Overall though, these shoes are excellent. I coula see these as solely performance shoes since they are wearing out so quickly, but I will definitely be investing in these again!

  • Great Sho

    by: BalletGirly - 07/01/2015

    I used to wear Grishko 2007s in a 6xxx hard shank. I wear a 6c hard shank in these shoes. I really like these shoes. I don't wear toe pads with them; I just tape my toes and use a little lambs wool in problem spots. They are quite a bit softer than my Grishkos which I realized were propping me up into pointe. You really have to work your feet in these shoes. I like how I can pointe my feet really well because I like to wear my pointe shoes during barre. The vamp is a little high but I just softened it with some water. One thing I don't like about the shoe is the wing block. The wings go all the way to the side seam and I found it painful, but it was easy to fix. I just put water in the wings and now they are soft and don't bug me. Another thing is the insole liner thing moves and bunches up in the shoe. I can't comment on durability as I have only worn these shoes for one class. Overall it is a beautiful shoe and it makes my feet look great.

  • Nt Quite

    by: Emilia1212 - 03/16/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I got these shoes after a mediocre experience with the studio II's. The first 2 hours they were good. I loved the high wings, wide box and v cut vamp ( I have wide feet). The wings really kept my feet from sickling and made me feel stronger en pointe. However, the 3/4 shank is very hard and made it difficult to flex fully into my arch. I know that freeds have a reputation of dying quickly but these died almost immediately! The platform collapsed inwards after 2 classes and no amount of jet glue could fix it. I had to get a brand new pair of shoes the day after purchasing these. However, these would be great for a one-time-wear performance shoe.

  • Nice shoes, but not a long life

    by: Leah22 - 09/29/2013

    Durability:

    I love these shoes. I used freed Classic's before I switched to the Studio Pros. I absolutely love the change. I have been wearing Freed's for over a year now. They are by far my favorite shoe. However, I find that they don't last very long. I am currently searching for another Freed that is narrower (I already wear the narrowest width in this shoe and now it feels almost to wide once the shoe is broken in.) in width, and has a stronger box and shank. But overall, I really love the shoe!!

  • So dead, so fast

    by: xXSaraBearXx - 03/15/2013

    Durability:

    Let's just start out by saying these lasted me like a nano second. The whole shank disappeared. On top of that, the shape is not flattering on any foot what so ever, the box is really bulby and round. Also, I always get tons of cramps in these shoes.

    These are great shoes! I have awful feet that hate to pointe and look awful in pointe shoes, but these shoes actually work for me! Since my feet are stupid, it is a little harder for me to break these in because the box is really tough, but i like to cut off the shank where it has the 3/4 cut, and they work a lot better!(: I would definitely recommend these.

    I LOVE these shoes, they give a great line, make wide feet look narrower. However, they are very painful to break in because of the extremely hard box and high wings,and once the shank startsto go it goes very quickly. I would not recommend these shoes unless you have very strong feet.

    These shoes are amazing. It takes a little bit more work on these to really break them in but it's worth it. It makes it really easy to roll through your feet and get over the box. I have to admit that the box can be painful when you're first breaking them in but after at least two classes the pain is gone. I would highly recommend these.

    These shoes are fabulous to wear. They're great for high cut arches, regardless of the strength of your foot. The 3/4 shank allows you to really break-in the shoes quickly. Although the box is definitely hard at first, using water on the sides helps. They aren't as comfy as the Makers but the platform lasts longer on these than on the Studios. Overall it's a great shoe :)

  • The best shoe of my life

    Durability:

    Fit: True to size

    As a pre-professional dancer who dances around five hours every day and had been previously wearing the Freed Studio IIs, I was intrigued by these and ordered a pair just for kicks. They were PERFECT for my feet. So much more comfortable and supportive and flattering than the original Studios. I have finally found my sole mate! The only downside is that I have a high arch and strong foot, and had to apply Jet Glue after about four days because they break rather quickly. They last at most, two weeks. That is pushing it. However, they are perfect for performing because they need relatively no breaking in time...just put them on and go! I'm ordering seven more pairs right now ;)

    These shoes did make my feet look nice, and they fit well. But for me, the place where the drawstring ties, ripped about a centimeter into the satin! Also, the shanks got REALLY soft really fast. I've only had these shoes for about two weeks and now I need a new pair :-(

    These shoes were OK. They lasted a long time, and took a long time to break in. It's really hard going onto the box because my arch is not very good, but if u have strong feet and a good arch, these are good shoes for u :)

    I went from Bloch Sonatas to these, and I'm sure glad I did! The shank really showcases a superior arch, and the "wings" that extend from the toe box really give a dancer great support. The only flaw would be the shank gets a bit too soft after a while, even if the toe box is intact.
