If the Shoe Fits

Last week, a specialist from Freed of London came to Kansas City Ballet to fit the company for pointe shoes. A few lucky KCBS students also received their own personal fittings! Check out some photos of KCBS student, Annaliese Willis, trying to find her perfect fit!

A Few Freed Facts: 

  • Freed pointe shoes have been handmade in London since 1929.
  • In 1986, Freed was bought by Chacott, a Japanese dance wear brand.
  • In 1989, Chacott was purchased by Onward Kashiyama, Japan’s 4th largest retailer.
  • In 2012, Freed of London supplied the shoes for the opening and closing ceremonies for the world Olympics.
