Welcome to Pointe Shoe Brands. In case you haven’t noticed, I am a pointe shoe nut. That is just a shorter way of saying”balletomane”. Not only do I think pointe shoes are works of art, I also enjoy the challenges of researching different brands. Put those two together and you end up with a blog like this.
About The Author
I live on the east coast of the United States about an hour and a half driving distance from Washington, D.C. My neighborhood is quiet which is the perfect atmosphere for writing. Writing, researching and solving mysteries is what I love to do.
I have a sense of humor which might pop up from time to time in my posts. I wont allow the stuffiness of the ballet world to keep me from smiling. How old am I? When I was born the President of the United States was Dwight D. Eisenhower.
What Are Your Goals For This Blog?
My goals are to collect as much information as I can on the pointe shoe brands of the world and keep a journal of what I find. I want to know exactly how many different pointe shoe companies and models actually exist out there. Maybe others are curious too.
Why Did You Start This Blog?
This blog was started as an easy way to keep all of my pointe shoe sites bookmarked and for me to have a list of links that I could access quickly. What started off as something for convenience has grown into this fascination with pointe shoes. There are many unanswered questions that I have about pointe shoe brands.
How Often Do You Post?
I don’t have a set schedule for posting. I try to post something once a month if possible. It depends on what I’m researching and whether I have enough information to make a satisfying post. Other times I might post a few times a week if I can’t contain myself with some new, exciting pointe shoe discovery.
What Is Your Ballet Background?
I started ballet lessons at the age of 9. I went on pointe at the age of 12 and continued doing pointe work until I married at age 22. I am definitely not a former Bolshoi ballerina. I do understand pointe shoes; how expensive they are, what it takes to break them in, and how hard it can be to find the “magic” pair.
Do You Have Commenting Rules?
Yes. If you don’t like what I write, do NOT send me a comment telling me so. I will never post your negativity here and will block IP addresses that send me ridiculous, petty and unladylike comments. This is my personal space on the internet and you are reading my personal thoughts. I don’t care if you like them or not.
I will not change my thoughts, wording or writing style for any silly, over- sensitive internet flamer. It will not happen. Ever.
I describe things the way that I see them and will never describe things the way you want me to see them. Sending me a comment wont help you.
Those who take offense at the way I describe something need to move on to other websites. As a writer, I have freedom of speech. I am within my legal rights to write about pointe shoes even if I am not a direct descendant of Anna Pavlova. Don’t like it? Too bad. Move on and get out of here.
This blog is MY journal and those who don’t like it should create their own.

I am not a teacher, counselor, salesperson or an expert in recommending baby, ballet, tap, jazz, disco, tennis, football, pointe, hip hop or horse shoes.
This is a hobby and something I do for enjoyment. Get it out of your head that this blog should contain Wikipedia correct information. Repeat, this blog is a personal journal and NOT the Wikipedia of pointe shoe brand information.
