Bruises after pointe

Stella Heart

Recommended Posts

I've started going en pointe recently, and every time I get these black spots on my toes(front of big toe, side of big toe, bottom of my fourth toe at the joint to my foot) . I know for a fact that my technique isn't the best, but I don't know what exactly is the problem.

Welcome, Stella Heart!

My guess is that your pointe shoes are too wide/long/the wrong shape for you, but it is possible that technique contributes. Have you read through the posted topics in the Pointe Shoe forum here on how pointe shoes should feel and fit? Perhaps, you just need a better fitting?
