Ekaterina’s Pointe Shoe Fitting

This young, beautiful ballet student is going through the dreaded pointe shoe fitting process that all ballet dancers go through. She is trying on a pair of Freed miniatures in this photo.

As you can see, the vamps are too long for her. She may do better in a Grishko or Russian Pointe miniature. In case you are wondering why a kitten in pointe shoes has shown up here at Pointe-shoe-brands,  there are some things in life that are simply too hard to resist!

Ekaterina is a female Persian kitten and is the latest member of the Costume Creations Dancewear Company in the United Kingdom.

She still has a long way to go as far as building up foot (paw) strength, but I feel she will make a wonderful apprentice at the Mariinsky Theater when she gets older. And think how beautiful she’s going to look in a white classical tutu!

Ekaterina  is now on Facebook where you can see her in her classical tutu

  1. Hmmm…I think she may need a more tapered model with a lower profile, and possibly a shorter length. Hang in there, Ekaterina, you’ll find your perfect shoe soon enough! I hope Ekaterina finds a shop with a discount program, because buying four shoes at a time must really add up!

    But once she purrrfects her pointe technique, she’d be a shoe-in for Frederick Ashton’s “La Chatte!”

    I had a Himalayan cat whom I adored, and Ekaterina reminds me of her. Himalayans and Persians have such great personalities. 🙂

  2. They seem so sweet….and she is such a good girl to hold still for the camera.
