Hi everyone,

I´m 30 years old and from Augsburg in Germany. I Dance Irish since I was 13 in a Munich based CLRG-School and since 2015 I´m an Independent Feis Dancer and Dance Feiseanna with WIDA because there is no School in my area and the weekly costs to drive to Munich by Train were too high.

My Problem:

I´ve worn Fay´s Grey Soles for over 10 years but I have Problems with toestands in it.

When I go on toes there is an air space and they make a funny pumping noise and it hurts.

My first heavies were Boyne Walk with blue Tips and round Points without the flat Piece for better Toestands.

I wanna Change the mark (Boyne Walk, Rutherford, Pacelli) and search for heavies with rounder Points.

Has anyone a good tip which shoes are better?

By points you mean the toe box taper, yes? I can't advise you on all the different brands, as I've only ever worn Rutherfords. Rutherfords have a nice, round box that's very comfortable if your feet are wide in the front. The tips are great for toe stands. I've heard they generally don't work well for narrow feet, though.
