The U.K.-based company, Me.Me Dance, that was founded by several former Gamba pointe shoe makers, appears to have disappeared. Five years ago, It was an interesting discovery not only for a new concept pointe shoe, but that a few talented cobblers decided not to let Gamba’s closure stop them from working their craft.

The Official Me.Me Dance Website Link Doesn’t Work Anymore
I typically try to test the links on the sidebar here as I often as I can. Sometimes, companies change domains. Sometimes, it is an error on my part. Most of the time, however, it means the brand has been a dying swan and sank to the bottom of the lake feathers and all.
Me.Me Dance Has A Blog; Albeit With A Few Cobwebs Hanging
I decided to do a little domain investigation about me.medance.co.uk. The domain is free and is available for sale. That means the broken link isn’t a server problem. There is no longer an official website to place orders. Links are not working on their blog, neither has there been activity since 2015. I decided to go ahead and send an inquiry in a comment area even though it looks abandoned. Wishful thinking on my part? Absolutely!
There Was Genuine Interest When They Debuted Their Shoes In 2012
I think one of the most informative articles about the specs of the pointe shoes was published by Ballet News U.K. when they were first introduced to the dance community in the summer of 2012. You can get a great idea of the struggles and challenges of perfecting a pointe shoe design in this article.
I searched for Me.Me Dance on social media sites, but found nothing. I found one dancewear shop in the UK who lists them as available stock and have sent an email to the company. Unless I learn otherwise, it appears this pointe shoe brand is now discontinued.
