Miniature Pointe Shoes by Dancin
Not only are these cute, tiny pink pointe shoes fit for a doll, they are mysterious as well. I just stumbled upon this photo among the hundreds of images I have stored on my computer.
I had intended on finding out something about this company brand name, Dancin’. When I see a mini pointe shoe with a brand name, I become hopeful that the company makes a regular pointe shoe model as well. Most do. I will have to let you know what I find after I do some research about this shoe company.

What Is It About Mini Pointe Shoes That Are So Irresistible?
I guess pointe shoe makers caught on to a great idea when they decided to make tiny replicas of the real thing.
I personally find mini pointe shoes so incredibly cute, as probably many other pointe shoe lovers do as well. I think they make wonderful gifts and decorations.
There are now quite a few dance supply companies that offer mini pointe shoes. Some are much more realistic looking than others, but all of them are still adorable and unique items for dancers.
The Freed Company seems to have their mini’s down to an art form. When makers offer their miniature versions in several colors, it can be hard to choose which shade to buy.
If you could only choose one, which Freed mini would you prefer? The traditional pink or the racier red?

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!

How beautiful miniature pointe shoes are! Just think, someone made these tiny little works of art using the same construction techniques that are used for life-sized pointe shoes. I have seen miniature pointe shoes made into purses, pencil cases, and wall art. The pointe shoe manufacturers have been clever enough to create these versions using the leftover materials from the factory so very little goes to waste. At the same time, miniature pointe shoes make wonderful gifts for ballet lovers of all ages.
