SERVICE FEE (W.E.F 1 September 2021)
From 1 Sept 2021, there will be a RM30 Service Fee for Pointe Shoe Fitting appointments. Fees will be waived if a pointe shoe purchase is made, or at the discretion of the Pointe Shoe Specialist.
We will be implementing this fee as there are customers who:
Have no intention of purchasing even though there is something that fits
Are just trying and/or asking for a second opinion
It was not easy coming to this decision, as we hope to keep this service free for our customers. A lot of resources are put into training our fitters to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and experience to provide a valuable fitting service. Unfortunately, there have been too many cases of customers taking advantage of our services.
Our pointe shoe fitting is in high demand, and we hope that customers who are serious about purchasing a pair of pointe shoes will be able to book their fitting appointment.
The fitting service fee will be waived if a pointe shoe purchase is made, or at the discretion of the Pointe Shoe Specialist. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to have a better experience for everyone.
Fitting would usually take approximately 30 to 40 minutes in order for us to give each dancer ample amount of time and attention that a pointe shoe fitting requires.
It’s always advisable to buy pointe shoes only if you know how the pointe shoes would fit your feet.
Wear fitted comfortable clothing as you will be asked to plié. It is also important for your fitter to see your knees and feet at the start of your fitting, so either wear convertible tights or use the ballet socks provided in store. Also make sure your toe nails are trimmed.
Our pointe shoe fitters will provide tips and advice on how to sew pointe shoe accessories and elastics, ribbons, etc., because these will also vary depending on the dancer’s feet.
Discuss with your ballet teacher as to whether you are ready to go onto pointe, some teachers will advise the student to undertake a Pre-Pointe assessment with a dance related physiotherapist.
