Some Pointe shoes for sale on Ebay are listed as Used or nearly new,
you should not purchase ANY Pointe shoes that have been used even once or twice,
this is because that a Pointe shoe moulds specifically to the dancer's feet and when the shoe has been put on it starts to mould to the foot.
Whenever buying a pair of Pointe shoes unless you know exactly which brand size etc. you need should go for a professional fitting at a dance store. It is always good to have your dance teacher there when getting any new Pointes.
Sellers: Please,For the sake of dancers, don't sell used or second hand/defective Pointe shoes.
