Custom Pointe Shoes Stories
Wedding Pointe Shoes: Brooke's Story
If you are thinking about getting a pair of wedding pointe shoes, it's a good idea to start arranging them at least 2-3 months before the wedding. With Brooke M, we managed to deliver her masterpiece on time, but needed to do everything in a rush... Here's how it looked like...

I recently saw on your website that you can create custom pointe shoes for weddings. I am a dancer and wanted to get a pair to wear on my big day! My typical shoe is a Bloch Balance European 5.5 XXXX. I have very wide feet, but very arch-y feet as well. I realize that it may be hard to have them be something I can go en pointe with, but I'm willing to wear whatever!
My wedding is on May 14, 2016, but would like my shoes sometime towards the beginning of May or sooner, if possible.

congratulations for the upcoming wedding!!
You can just describe or send us a picture of how you imagine your wedding pointe shoes. Then we'll need you to take some measurements to find your best fit in Grishkos.

I have attached some pictures of some ideas and I've also attached a picture of my dress. It'd be nice if we could try to match it :)
And as for measuring, would you like me to go try on some grishkos at a dance store and let you know which ones fit best?

No, i think we can find a good fit online. What I need you to do is the following (please find the complete instruction guide attached, you can skip some points but the more details i have, the better!)

Thank you, I think i've got enough information for now! Your feet are wide but aren't square - so i would go for a slightly tapered model, like Nova or Miracle by Grishko, Size 6 XXXXX M. Do you remember which was the Grishko style you've tried at a local shop and did not like? Although, the shops rarely have this width in stock so you could just have tried the narrower shoe and it's a torture, no matter which brand is it.
Anyway, i think i've found the basic shoe for you, i'll just see which one do we have in stock right now and let you know!

Dear Brooke, Usually, it takes 2-3 weeks for the parcel to arrive. However this is not completely in our hands because we cannot predict possible delays that are not up to us. If you want to ensure you will have your shoes ASAP we can send them by courrier. This will take 1 week max.

Ok great! And I'm willing to pay for the courier delivery, that way I know for sure they'll get here on time.
