Fitting Miss Auti for Pointe Shoes

Josephine fits youtuber, Miss Auti! This week Josephine hung out with Auti Kamal from the Youtube channel, Dance with Miss Auti! Aside from giggling and just having a good time, Josephine helped Auti find a new pair of pointe shoes. Josephine has fit Auti before, but this time around was a little bit different, because Auti had not been training on pointe for a quite a while. The needs of a dancer when they're coming back to pointe are often different than when a dancer has been training consistently. Since Auti was dealing with a little bit of sinking, they...

Pointe Shoe Fitting For Going To College (with Ashley Lew)

Josephine fits Ashley Lew! When dancer's go off to college, the expense of pointe shoes can become quite overwhelming. With that said, Josephine likes to move dancers to a longer lasting pointe shoe when they get to this point in their life. One of the most common "long-lasting" pointe shoes is the Gaynor Minden! The materials they are made of are vastly different from a traditional pointe shoe, so they do not break down in the same way that many shoes do. Because of this, Ashley is able to make them last around a year, as opposed to the 1-2...

Josephine Fits Herself in Pointe Shoes! (Nikolay 2007 vs. StreamPointe)

Josephine fits herself for pointe shoes! When Josephine was dancing, it was very difficult for her to dance en pointe, because her feet are so narrow and compressive that she would just sink in every shoe. UNTIL she was finally fit into the Nikolay (Grishko at the time) 2007. At the time, it was the only shoe of its kind. It is a very narrow and tapered shoe, helping Josephine to stay lifted inside her shoes. Since then, many other shoes have come out that are similar to the 2007. However, more recently Nikolay came out with a shoe that...

The Wand Chooses the Wizard

Josephine Lee first pair of pointe shoes Harry Potter magical fit pointe shoe fitting pointe shoes professional pointe shoe fitting

Put your nerd caps on... Remember when Harry Potter went to pick his very first wand? Getting your first pair of pointe shoes is kinda like that. Every foot is unique. You need a different shoe depending on your strength, flexibility, shape and size. That is why it is important to find a professional fitter who has the knowledge and the selection to accommodate every foot. Finding the perfect fit may be a long process, but once you find "the one," it can be quite magical (I know, nerdiest joke ever). Au revoir xoxo Josephine
