Pointe-shoe Quiz September 6, 2014

Look at the waist seam stitching. What maker made these shoes?

Paul, I hope this one takes you a while to get...



  1. My guess is that it's either Freed or Bloch.

    1. Hi Eric, thanks for participating. Sorry, it's neither Freed nor Bloch.

  2. Hello Jill ,

    Nice view of the part of the shoe you have choosen . Ok lets get into it.. the shoe is sewn under the sole . The vamp is in a European U channel with a draw string at the center of the vamp , the size is in either American or European size by the number 7 width XX Narrow Not too many makers do that . The quarter panel is sewn with a double stitch. None on the sole .
    Since you have given the pic at the cropped level . With the size info in the upper middle to middle about two inches before the quarter panel stitching . With no logo or sole pattern . ... looks like there suffolks
    How did I do teacher ?
