Grishko Comes to Town!


A normal Saturday Afternoon in the shop. Myself (Amy) and a co-worker Sarah where extremely busy and had stock EVERYWHERE! I had four pointe shoe fittings booked in for the day and two ‘walk in’s’. (that’s a lot of pointe shoes to fit in one day). In one of my pointe shoe fittings a tall European man kept watching and was intrigued to see which pointe shoes we stock (Bloch, Grishko, Gamba, Freed, Capezio, Merlette and many more.) He moved on to look at our sneakers and quizzed Sarah about a top brand we stock. It turns out that he had just popped in from Moscow, where the Grishko Factory is located! He explained who he was and that he wanted to make a Grishko sneaker better than brand he was looking at. *WATCH THIS SPACE FOR A NEW GRISHKO SNEAKER* He told us he was going to take apart the shoe bit by bit to see exactly how the shoe is manufactured and find a better way to make it and improve the comfort of the shoe. He also commented on how Professional our pointe shoe fitting was and that we are doing everything that the training taught us well. He told me to keep up the good work.
