this is coming from someone who has very strong feet... These shoes lasted about 5 minutes on y feet. they looked good at first, but looked very poor after my first class. they looked very boxy on my narrow feet, even when professionally fitted.
Hello! Thank you for sharing your experience with these shoes. We will address the issue with the manufacturer and make them aware of this issue. One of our Customer Service representatives will contact you to rectify the situation.
Seriously, I wear these in a size 6.5. And they only go up to a 6. Well, anyways, the shoes are great for me because I have giant feet and the box on this shoe is shorter, and therefore easier to dance in. The shank is very nearly broken in whenever I get them, so demi pointe isn't very difficult at all. But they don't last as long as I'd hoped, and I even wear the hard shank.
These shoes make my feet look amazing! I don't have very strong ankles or beautifully arched feet so a shoe that supports while giving my foot a great line is wonderful. I have tried probably 10 plus different pointe shoes in the past year and I have at last found my shoes. They are comfortable (as comfortable as pointe shoes can be that is). The only problem with them is that they die fairly quickly, I have strong feet though and dance in them quite a bit so this is understandable. I love these shoes and would recommend them to anyone! <3
Is the sizing for the "Wear Moi La Pointe" pointe shoes the same as the Bloch Balance European Point
by: DancerNat (06/30/2013)
I want to try the wear moi pointe shoes but they do not sell them wear I live and i currently wear the Bloch European Balances
The Wear Moi La Pointe shoes are sized a little smaller than the Balance European. The Wear Moi advises to go down 2 sizes from street shoe whereas the Balance European advises to go down 2-3 sizes from street shoe. We do highly recommend getting professionally fitted for any new pair of pointe shoes as having a size that is even slightly off can risk ankle and foot damage. If these are not carried in your local store I might try purchasing a couple pairs and asking your local dance wear store if you could make a fitting appointment so that they could make sure the shoes are an accurate fit, before dancing in them. - DDS Customer Service (07/01/2013)

what is the largest width these come in? And do these compare to Grishkos
by: Smile (04/20/2013)
Hi i was just wondering what the biggest width you carry because in the Grishko Triumphs i wear a 4 1/2 4x and would this shoe be like the Grishko Triumph?
You would need to get fitted for the La Pointe in order to get completely accurate sizing. The Grishko does run a little wider, as the La Pointe only goes up to a 3X. Also, the La Pointe is reccomended by the manufacturer to size 2 sizes down from street shoe whereas the Triumph is suggested to go down 3 sizes from street shoe. - DDS Customer Service (04/22/2013)
