You’ve waited patiently and it’s official! We’re now offering pointe shoe fittings at our Barrington location.We are currently carrying the Grishko Pro 2007 and the Grishko Ulanova I as well as the Capezio styles Aria, Glisse, and Tiffany. As with our Evanston location, pointe shoe appointments are required so that we can prepare for your arrival and give you 100% one-on-one attention when you come to be fit. Please call our boutique at 847-277-1009 to set up your appointment with one of our expertly trained fitters!
And as we mentioned in a previous blog post, we will be starting off small for the time being but growing our Barrington pointe shoe collection over time. We are a bit “spatially challenged” in our location formerly known as Performance Dancewear, and 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.) 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. If you find yourself wanting to make an appointment in Evanston instead, we’ll be happy to offer you 10% off your purchase for making the trip over (please mention it when you come in for your appointment, or pick up a 10% Off postcard in Barrington that you can bring with you.) Or, if you know your exact brand, style, size, width and shank, we’ll happily transfer a shoe over to you from Evanston as well.
See you in Barrington pointe dancers!
