The Allegro ladies have been in Barrington for just over 3 months now, and we’ve had a blast revamping the store formerly known as Performance Dancewear.
We’ve gained a reputation for our awesome pointe shoe fittings in Evanston over the past few years, so one of the most common questions we’ve gotten from our new customers in Barrington has been: “When are you going to get pointe shoes?” We hear you! And the answer is: SOON!
Here’s the deal: We are in the space formerly known as Performance Dancewear and we are, let’s say, spatially challenged. We will be receiving our first shipment of pointe shoes in Barrington this AUGUST, and we’ll be starting out small with Grishko and Capezio. Pointe shoes simply take up a lot of room (because of the large number we must stock in order to fit so many different feet), and until we’re able to find a new, larger home in Barrington, we’ll still be offering the majority of our pointe shoe styles in our Evanston location. (Check out the two new shoes we just added in Evanston this month!) We’ll keep you posted on the status of our first pointe shoe arrivals in Barrington on Facebook and here on our website.
Until then, if you’re going to make the trip from the Barrington area to our Evanston boutique, make sure to schedule a pointe shoe fitting online in advance so we know you’re coming! And remember, we can always transfer some shoes from Evanston to Barrington for you if you know your exact size.
We can’t wait!
