Now Offering Pointe Shoe Customization Services!

We are excited to announce that we are now offering a full array of pointe shoe customization and cobbling services!

We’ve long been known for providing expert pointe shoe fittings, and now we’re able to elevate our service offerings to an even higher level. From traditional sewing services to specialized treatments to alter the shoes, we are anxious to help make your shoes perform even better for you. The services we offer include:

Ribbon & Elastic Sewing – we will help you select the right styles to meet your needs, with a huge variety of options and brands to choose from. We offer a couple different sewing methods to suit your preferences, and will ensure the fit is customized to your feet. Cost – $12 sewing fee for ribbon and standard loop elastic (add $3 for criss cross elastic), plus cost of materials.

Elastic Drawstrings – in some models of pointe shoes we are able to replace the standard non-elastic drawstrings with elastic ones. We are happy to do this for you for a $7 cobbling fee, plus the cost of the elastic drawstring.

Shank Tacks – to reinforce and strengthen the shanks of your pointe shoes we can install shank tacks. These harden the shank at its critical flex point, prolonging their useful life. Cost – $7 cobbling fee.

Shank Stiffeners – beyond shank tacks, with some shoe models we are able to install separate shank “stiffeners”, an even more effective way to reinforce the shank. Cost – $7 cobbling fee plus the cost of the stiffeners.

Please note – these services are available only for pointe shoes purchased at our store. Customization of the pointe shoes makes them non-returnable and non-exchangeable. Service turnaround time is generally 2-3 days. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs. We are happy to assist you!
