Finding the right pointe shoe.

I'm constantly explaining to my dancers that finding the right shoe is not only a process but hard work.  The serious dancer needs to be concerned about finding the right shoe and should ask the advice of their mentors.  I never get asked for my advice on this topic, which to be honest, I think is a shame because I think I could sometimes be helpful.  Anyway, enough of my ranting... this video says it all.
