At Dance Box we take our time with the delicate process of fitting a pointe shoe. Therefore, we ask you to make an appointment to see us for your pointe shoe fitting. An appointment allows us to give you the best service and overall experience. Our pointe shoe fittings typically take place at our Coquitlam location because the bulk of our stock is there. Our Coquitlam location does take walk in appointments but we do recommend calling in first. Langley location is by appointment only.
To book an appointment, please call us at either location and provide us with the following information.
Your name, phone number, and the day you wish to see us.
The name of your dance teacher and dance school.
How many pairs of pointe shoes you have worn in the past.
Are you allowed to wear padding in the shoes? If yes, what kind?
Please call to make an appointment

Pointe shoes for professional dancers that are specifically designed to be silent on stage. The shoe is based on the original 2007 and features a new, noise-reducing strip on the pointe platform and on the sole under the toes, a new and unique glue with latex to give the box additional elasticity, and a new box assembly slightly reducing the length of the stiff part of the vamp.

The Miracle uses the same healing technology found in band-aides. Nano-silver particles are sprayed on a layer of soft material in the lining of the sole and box, allowing constant contact with the foot to promote healing. This technology neutralizes the harmful bacteria and fungi that cause unpleasant odors and infections. The Miracle is made on the same last as the 2007 but has a lower heel.
