Here are some ballet shoe videos. All of the ballerina heavily customize their RTW ballet shoes according to their feet, the way they dance, and the ballet act. Customizations including cutting outsoles in half, breaking the shank, breaking the toe stiffener, a lot of burning, stitching, and gorilla glues, etc. Form follow function. Some cobblers can help their customers RTW shoes fit better, by adding support or stretching shoes here and there.
