R-Class has been manufacturing pointe shoes since 1991, both under the R-Class name as well as other well-known brands throughout the world. Below is a general sizing guideline for the RC and CL Collections. Pointe shoes should always be tried on to ensure the best possible fit for the safety and health of the dancer.
