What’s not to love about the timelessness of Freed? For a company specializing in pointe fittings, we can’t help but still be a little obsessed over the most infamous shoes in ballet’s history. The shoes might not last quite as long as those from some other brands, but they sure do make up for it in gorgeousness.
When you step into a pair of Freed of London dance shoes, your feet touch history, experience and expertise. Freed of London's dance shoes have been worn by the greatest dancers since the 1920s and are still worn by the leading dancers, companies and schools around the world. Over 90% of all Freed of London products are manufactured in England, with over 150,000 pairs of Pointe Shoes being handmade every year. Freed is the leading supplier of bespoke Pointe Shoes, handmade to perfectly fit dancers feet.
