Freed pointes

So I wore my new Freed pointe shoes today. They're not magic shoes, i.e., my feet don't look amazing, but they do seem to be a bit better than Sanshas. Though the profile is a bit high so my toes were scrunched.

And it felt like my feet were pointed when I was pointing them - sounds odd but when I wear Sanshas (or others), my ankle points, but my toes don't feel like they are pointing.

I did pirouettes, fouettes, endedans pirouettes, arabesque & attitude turns. Even almost a triple pirouette to the right!

I might have to cut the shank a bit so it ends where I need it to end. I ended up fidgeting with my shoes a lot throughout class....

Class today was combined (lower level with our level) so there was a lot of people in class. One of my friends who quit ballet two years ago, took class today. I miss having her around so it was great that she was there.

My new Freeds arrived - fast turnaround - only 1 week! And came from overseas to boot. I hope they work for me.

Dead shoes

I wore an old pair of Sansha ovations (I wore them for a show in March, and by May, thought they were too dead). Plum was much better, even though the left shoe was a bit too dead for my taste. The right shoe was fine.

So I guess they did change the specs for that shoe. Arg. I hate that. Well, I think I'm going to head to the Capezio store on Friday and try on some shoes... we'll see.

I ended up running Plum once and Doll once.

Pointe shoe quest

I need to get new pointe shoes. A totally different brand/model. Arg.

I ordered some Freed Classics - should be coming in the next couple of weeks, but before that - I am stuck w/ So Dancas. And the Sanshas which absolutely will not work for me.

I am thinking of trying a diff shoe, one of the Capezio models. We'll see.

Ran Plum once with the So Dancas. It was okay, but not great. Doesn't help that the floor is slippery.

Class today was just bleh. It was okay, but while everyone else is having a blast, it's just okay for me.

I don't know what I am going to do about my pointe shoes...
