How to choose the right demi-pointes?
Demi-pointe shoes are often used in ballet lessons. The differences are between two main criteria, which are the sole and the material. Full soles are recommended for ballet beginners of any age. They offer good support to the foot. Whilst split-soles are more flexible at the arch of the foot, and provide an attractive line through the foot. Often recommended for intermediate or advanced students who already have good technical mastery
Why choose leather demi-pointes?
The choice is very much a personal one, your teacher may recommend leather demi-pointes rather than fabric ones. Please note: Choose shoes in a comfortable size, as they stretch very little. On this split-sole model elasticated triangles are fitted to the sole of the shoe, making the shoe even more supple.
How to choose the right size?
The toes shouldn't be able to move around within the shoes, they should be comfortable held in place without being too tight. A typical exercise to try: When trying on the shoes, stand up and try out a few movements such as flexing – on pointe and then on demi-pointe. All shoes have a tightening cord to make sure they can be perfectly adjusted to your feet. Once adjusted, the excess cord should be cut off. The remaining length should not hang longer than the shoes, nor be made into a loop.
