Pointe shoe quiz 09-07-2010

What maker’s shoes is this girl wearing?

I know, it's a male fantasy, but try and focus on the woman’s shoes, ok? This should be an easy one to answer!

Note: This is another instance where the comment moderation feature is going to be useful by letting members submit comments that won’t be posted immediately. The benefit of that is that everyone will get a chance to answer on their own without being guided or confused by someone else’s answer. So to all my pointe shoe enthusiasts: Paul D, Paul, Eric, Joe, Leigha, Ben and others here’s an opportunity to participate in a quiz with a more level playing field. I’ll post the comments two days from now. Good luck to all participants!


  1. I can't tell without seeing the sole or insole.

  2. Hi Jill, I'm going to go with Grishko's. (I'm not a pointe shoe expert... have just scoured Google looking at different makers and they look very Grishko'ish!)


  3. Hi Jill,

    This is what I look like now >



  4. Thank you to my readers who have submitted answers so far. As I mentioned in the note above I'm holding off posting all comments until 48 hours after the quiz was posted to give everyone participating an equal chance.

    For participants who leave more than one comment the comment with the latest date will be used as that persons answer.

  5. Hey Jill. This is my 2nd time trying to post a reponse to your wonderful blog-quiz. Anway! Great to hear from you again!

  8. Hi Jill, yes, complete guess! Although it seemed more apparent when I studied the lace/surround details on the shoes.

    [cheeky request]If I've won anything would it be possible that the lady in the awesome picture you posted of 'instructor awaiting student' a few weeks ago is residing in my bath tub please? [/cheeky request] ;)

    Regards and thanks very much! Paul.
