Welcome, too, mey1453...I'll second everything Joanne suggested in her post. It takes a while to build strength back after a five year hiatus. Don't be in too much of a hurry as you might risk injury. Ultimo shoes are, I think, discontinued. In a Capezio, which I believe is a good first pointe shoe, you might want to try Plie 2 or Contempora. They have characteristics a bit similar to Ultimo (moderate shank, broad box). I think Ultimo may have had a winged box. As Joanne said, be sure to try on many different shoes to see which one works best. Good luck, and start off slowly and carefully.
