Freed of London Studios Professional Hard Pointe Shoes. This shoe has a strong block and tapered on to pointe platform, with a shock absorbing layer to diffuse stress. It has a strong graduated insole, as well as dipped sides and an elastic drawstring. This shoe is suited to mid level students and above.
To maximise the life span of your pointe shoes after wear remove your toe pads and put them somewhere to air and dry out. Do not store in polythene bags. It also helps to fill the block area of the shoe with thin paper. This encourages the block to maintain its original shape. The outside tip (platform) of the shoes should be protected by using suede toe caps or darning. This reduces the wear and improves the grip.
