I visited here like a total fangirl a few weeks ago. They are something of a mecca for dance shoes; ballet flats and pointe, ballroom, jazz, all of the above. They also, I learnt, make a range of small sized vintage style and wedding shoes. HUZZAH I thought, finally gorgeous shoes for my size 2.5 foot.

I went in to Freed to buy some ballet shoes and dance skirts for some models we were styling for a shoot. I have wanted to go in for so long but as soon as I walked in, I felt enourmous and ridiculous.

Freed's of London is a great store for those involved in the dance industry. It stocks a wide range of clothing and shoes for all dance styles and caters for adults as well as children.

My first ballet shoes and character shoes came from here. We would order tights and shoes while on tour, in the Med and the Far East, from here and they would be swift to arrive.
