These are the general recommendations for the Suffolk pointe shoe according to Mark Suffolk;
“Our shoes are all classic paste English turn shoes. For the longest life possible, we recommend that you allow your feet to break in the shoes during normal wear. Most dancers have their own process that works for them. Some girls like to step on the box a little and others like to bend the insole at the 3/4 point a tiny bit. It is up to you! We always suggest to discuss any specific questions about your shoes with your pointe instructor or your shoe fitter”.
