Noel started fitting pointe shoes in 1978. His reputation is international with customers traveling from Australia, Asia, and Europe. Noel was consulted by major pointe shoe companies for design input including Russian Pointe, Capezio, and So Danca.
Dancers travel to see Noel for pointe shoe fittings for many reasons. He gives 90 minutes of intense evaluation, has a large variety of shoes in stock to fit any dancer’s needs, and gives expert advice gleaned from his 3 decades of experience.
Noel is very particular about which brands and styles of shoes he carries. After rigorous testing, many are excluded. He currently carries dozens of styles and brands. Noel will only stock shoes that are paste box construction, avoiding styles made of plastics.
