Pointe Shoe Fitting Appointments

We have been fitting pointe shoes for over 40 years! Our team are professionally trained and have the know-how to combat any fitting need.    

Your foot is as unique as your fingerprint! To ensure a perfect fit we do not sell pointe shoes without a fitting.

We understand that things can happen to make you late. We forgive you. But, if the worst happens and you are late for an appointment, please let us know you are on your way and we will do as much as we possibly can in your allocated time.

If you are more than 10 minutes late your appointment may be re-scheduled.

Talk to our sales team today to book your appointment. We ask you to email us for all appointments if possible. We’re very busy and this makes sure we keep track of everything.

Please wear ballet tights or socks. When we fit pointe shoes we want to fit them in whatever you will actually wear them with to get the perfect fit.

Please bring any old pointes you have, your toe pads and any other accessories you use. It is important that we fit you in the most accurate way possible.

For first time fittings please talk to your teacher in advance and find out which toepads you need and whether they have any other requirements or preferences.

Try to cut your toenails before your appointment: you’d be surprised how painful it is to dance on too-long toe-nails. Ouch!

Due to Covid19 restrictions group fittings will be unavailable until further notice. As an alternative we can schedule back-to-back appointments for your students over one or two days.

Please email team@danceworld.ie and we would be delighted to arrange.

We need a little time to prepare, please give at least seven days’ notice for 3+ students.

Please ensure that all pointe shoes are checked by your teacher before you sew on ribbons and elastics.

We are more than happy to re-fit and exchange pointe shoes once they are un-worn and ribbons have not been sewn on. Pointe shoes cannot be returned once ribbon and elastic has been sewn.
