Pointe Shoe Anatomy

Five major components of a pointe shoe need to be taken into consideration for fitting. These are the last, the vamp, the platform, the shank, and the paste. However the most important factor of these is the last. This `shell` determines the major factor in the fitting, which is to find a correct and comfortable shape shoe when the foot is standing flat and when en point. The other components of vamp, platform, shank and paste are considered to be the `cosmetics` of the shoe.
