Professional Pointe Shoe Fitter

hi there

Recommended Posts

Is there a professional pointe shoe fitter in NYC that you can recommend. We are making a trip there in January. It seems that locally I can't find a retailer with enough options (Freed's are nearly impossible to find in order to actually try them on). My DD was told she needed to find a better shoe, but I don't know where to go!

Mary Carpentar is a terrific fitter. She is currently working at the Freed warehouse in Long Island City. (It's very easy to get to by subway from Manhattan.) Capezio is in transition right now when it comes to professional fitters. Two of their fitters left in September and they are currently training new ones. They told my mom that they are hoping that they will be through "transitioning" by January.
